From the Bangor Daily News:
The inside gallery at The Art House 61 Pleasant Street, Portland, features fine art photography by Ramona du Houx for the month of June, 2015.

Ramona du Houx creates fine art photography that looks like watercolor paintings evoking mystery and a sense of wonder. Some find them nostalgic and some mystical. Many have said the images have a healing nature. See more at http://www.photographybyramonaduhoux.com.

Ramona is currently represented by Gallery Storks of Tokyo, Japan and is also a member of the Maine Artist Collaborative and the Harlow Gallery. Gallery Storks has produced an art book of Ramona’s art called: Transformations— Revealing nature’s complex balance. Many of the photos on display at the Art House are in the book.

“The Greek philosopher Heraclitus wrote that you couldn’t step into the same river, twice. Today, we don’t normally see how interconnected rhythms of nature are a part of us — too many of us tend to take nature’s continual dance of life for granted.

“Scientists, innovators, and inventors throughout history took the time to observe nature and her connective rhythms. But now society plugs us into the Internet, and while that can open doors, sometimes too much of being Internet-connected disconnects us from the mysteries of the natural world that are transformational. I want to help show how nature’s interconnectedness can lead us to discoveries about our world and ourselves,” said Ramona. Read more

February’s exhibit showcases some of the work of INSIGHTS highlighted Gallery artists.

Professor Takafumi Suzuki, also known as Yohaku Yorozuya, has had multiple exhibits over his forty year career as a photographic artist. He is renowned for his use of classic darkroom techniques spending days perfecting his images.

Ramona du Houx uses the camera with a painter’s eye. The technique she discovered back in 1979, in New York, uses movement to create a sense of wonder through colors, textures, memories, and the seasons. Everything within the photographic viewfinder becomes visibly interconnected when objects merge with the motion of the camera as the image, the “lightgraph,” is taken.

Jeremy Frey is known for creating beautiful works with innovative texture and use of materials that continue styles and forms passed down through generations of Wabanaki and Passamaquoddy artists.

Jos Ruks, from the Netherlands, is fascinated by sails and the natural world. He captures the wind’s motion in paper sails, kites, and mobiles. Some of his mobiles are powered by solar electricity and dance above visitors in the gallery as their lights turn on. In the stillness of some of his set pieces there is always the sense of motion and emotion, which captivates. His maps and historical perspectives convey the mystery of time.

“For me art reflects where we live in our communities, as well as where an artist is in their heart, mind and soul,” said Ramona. “In 1979 I began to paint with my camera to depict the interconnectedness of nature. I took the initial results to the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where they recorded them long ago. The continuing results have been unpredictable, intriguing, and thought provoking.” Read more
