personal level as well. The "Mortal Coil" series.
Focusing on acts perpetrated by men against men,
and are in part the result of a psychopathic insecurity
felt by the perpetrators. One can begin to see these
actors as movements of emotion, internal impulses.
One is then both the victim and the perpetrator...

I am fascinated by man-made mechanical,
quasimechanical and electromechanical time, space,
motion as I am by the dynamic and energetic activities
of nature. All this constantly colors my personality and
affects my ego. I incorporate my deep awareness of
the simple nature of complex existence into my
understanding of man's efforts and success in
controlling nature. Robert Mangold has exhibited
Internationally, his works are collected Internationally,
including the White House Sculpture Garden.
Exploring the pure nature of light. Creating sculptural installations
that investigate layers of reality, shadow, reflection, distortion,
I attempt to entice the viewer into a dialogue questioning the
boundaries of what we assume is real. Is a shadow of an object
less real than the object? Using photographic imagery, text,
reflective glass and light, both natural and artificial these pieces
are mysterious, illusive, and evocative.
"Ayahuasca Journals", is based on Joyce Roetter's personal
journeys into the Amazon jungles of Peru. The images
are the first of a series that journal her continued
exploration and relationship with the Ayahuasca plant,
and the Shamanic teachers that are dedicated to its use.
The work is directly connected to "real" experiences that
the artist has had, while seeking knowledge and healing
from a culture that has utilized a "teacher" plant. Joyce
approaches the work from different angles and perspectives,
as an initiate, explorer, collector, investigator, patient
and documenter. Joyce has been a recipient of the "Jackson
Pollock - Lee Krasner" Grant for her works in South America.
She is a Teacher of Photography at the Santa Fe
