Talking Art in Maine, Intimate Conversations: Jesse Salisbury and Kazumi Hoshino
Talking Art in Maine is a series of intimate, one on one
conversations between artist, Jane Dahmen, and notable artists and curators who
have made a substantial contribution to the arts in the state of Maine. They are offered free to the public.
Jesse Salisbury and Kazumi Hoshino, husband and wife sculptors:
Influenced by Japanese stone splitting and carving techniques, Jesse Salisbury
hand-splits and then reassembles the granite to bring out the stone's inherent
movement, raw power, and natural beauty. Kazumi Hoshino lives close to nature;
her sculpture is carved from local granite with a focus on intimate shapes.
