Gallery Ehva
daring and beautiful art

. . . . . . .

Dear Friends,

Sorry, we're closed now.

I could not keep gallery open for more then one reason, but the biggest one was me. I did not feel I was strong (and smart) to contine. I needed rest: do nothing time, be closer to Earth, Sea, Sun, Sky, my cat Bikini and my dog Hana.

Do I miss it? Yes! I miss our dinners, painting Easter eggs, my freedom to do with our space whatever I wanted to do, I miss people, soup and bread openings... I miss our little "community".

Do I miss ART? Not now. I am fine having my hands dirty, working in my garden.

What I do now? Hmmm, little art, lots of cooking...

Who I am now? Rebel, definitely!

So, be well my friends and thank you for letting me love you. I know we'll see each other, sonner or later.

-- Yours, always, Ewa

"My artwork celebrates the mystical relationship between human beings and the animal kingdom."

 

Sculpture by Donna Dodson

White Elephant, White Elephant, 23" tall, wood, paint

The White Elephant is a very good girl. The day she got married was the day she always dreamed of. Yet, to her mate, the white elephant is both a blessing and a curse. As blessed as a good luck charm yet cursed like a promise unfulfilled. Due to her stout figure and her fragile nature, she cannot be put to much practical use.

Sculpture by Donna Dodson

Elephant Bride, Elephant Bride, 19" tall, wood, paint

Elephant bride is sort of a bad girl. Instead of virginal and white, she is gothic in red and black. She has fallen from the garden of Eden, like a modern day Eve, yet everyone adores her fiery spirit and sense of humor. Unlike the pristine, white brides of history, she blazes forth with the strength of today's woman.

Sculpture by Donna Dodson

Asian Elephant, Asian Elephant, 32" tall, wood, paint

The female Asian Elephant has no tusks. She is neither sharp nor coarse in her mannerisms. Although some might say the golden blonde color in her hair is over the top, or fake, she would say it is the perfect shade of summer wheat that makes her glow like an inner goddess.

Sculpture by Donna Dodson

Elephant Matador, Elephant Matador, 21" tall, wood, paint

Could a female be a matador? And taunt a bull (elephant) to death? Elephant Matador dares to enrage her opponent. She wears red gloves that blind him, then teases and provokes his rage. Yet she swiftly dodges and maneuvers beyond his control. Evading the target of his wrath, she stays out of his way.

Sculputure by Donna Dodson

Silver Fox, Silver Fox, 25" tall, wood, pigment, enamel

Silver Fox wears soft and comfortable, loose fitting, flowing clothing, like a doyenne or madam of the house. She has been around the block a few times, but no longer has sharp edges. She likes men, and she's had a few of them as lovers and companions. Now in her golden years, she maintains her independence and the luxury of her own space.

Artist statement

For Donna Dodson, the elephant represents power, sensitivity, strength, and wisdom. These feminine archetypes or goddess figures represent her vision of womankind. The Hindu elephant god Ganesh inspires Dodson's work but all of her figures are female. Her studies of African sculptures and Native American totems inform her elephants. In the process of carving, the ears are developed realistically but in the form, Dodson implies headdresses, helmets and hair-dos. Dodson's monolithic and serene sculptures are enhanced by the use of paint whereby color transforms wood sections into objects such as tusks, gloves and hair. Dodson is inspired by Jessica Stockholder's interplay of color and form in her art work as well as Cynthia Moss's field studies of African elephants. The sculptures of Deborah Butterfield, Daisy Youngblood, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Elizabeth Catlett and Rona Pondick influence her style.
