In his most recent collection of wood sculptures, David LeCheminant says his exhibition Icons is a reminder of the interconnectedness of all people and our impact on others.
“Recently I’ve spent time wondering about the forces that have lead me to this specific moment in my life.” LeCheminant states. “Like all of us, I have been impacted by variables in a complex web of experience. Finally, though, I realized the key transformative force in my life can be reduced to a handful of influential people — some present from the beginning, some still in my life, and others that have come and gone. Their influence has been substantial and perfectly timed, each planting specific ideas that matured and lead me to a more honest view of myself and the world. Their influence has become the core of who I am.
LeCheminant’s interest in art began in college and has developed over the years as he has worked in various media including glass and now wood. He thinks of himself as both an artist and a craftsman – equal parts concept and hands-on doing. He combines ideas from nature, urban living and contemporary culture. He then uses the language of form to express himself in a way that is synthetic and abstract, working from concepts that are direct, relevant and contain intrinsic personal meaning.
(Un)Invited Collaborations with my Ancestors
Rodriguez states, “My work is about the many borders I have crossed in my life. I carry many of these with me in my memories and produce work about these physical and psychological borders. As a product of multiple cultures and identities, my art is used as a vehicle to explore the creation of my personal narrative.”
Rodriguez is an artist and educator originally from Houston, Texas. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of Redlands in 1997, he spent time travelling throughout Latin America and the Caribbean; immersing himself in the culture, language, and food of his ancestors. Horacio is passionate about contributing to Salt Lake City’s art community and helping to connect immigrant communities to the arts.
Finch Lane Gallery Exhibitions
The Salt Lake City Arts Council, located in Reservoir Park, programs visual arts exhibits year-round in the Finch Lane Gallery. Artist are invited to apply for exhibits annually. Typically, the applications are made available in January and due back to the Arts Council in March.
The exhibition program is designed to give local artists an opportunity to show their current body of work. The application process includes a thorough and competitive review by the Visual Arts Committee of the Salt Lake City Arts Council, with members from the board of directors and visual artists from the community.
Both one-person shows and group exhibits are considered. The quality of work, as evidenced by images of previous work submitted with the application, a range of styles and media, and a balanced exhibition season are among the criteria considered in the application review process.
