Since I began drawing as young as I can remember, I thought the pinnacle of being an Artist (with a capital A) was being able to render the human figure realistically. As a child growing up, the only “art” in the house were religious images. Growing up in small town Iowa, I don’t remember seeing any kind of figure paintings in art except religious iconography and traditional representational landscapes.
Shane was chosen as one of two Hawaii artists for the annual Solo Exhibition at the Hui Noʻeau here on Maui. He represented the “emerging artist” category and was honored to join established Oahu artist, Jodi Endicott, who showed her installation, The Market. The show is open from August 15 — September 18; we hope you can see it! Scroll down to view photos from the opening reception.
