Asia Scudder is an Amesbury, MA artist and owner of Blue Wave Fine Art Gallery, who has been bending wire for almost 25 years and transforms baling wire from merely a heavy duty material into delicate lines by which her works become otherworldly. Scudder was inspired by her grandfather, a sculptor of regional-fame, to create “artistic representations of [her] own personal life experience.” Her work brings in aspects of storytelling with, as she described, “quantum timelessness”, through her simultaneous investigations of early cultures, such as the Mayans, as well as her expression of human emotion.

“I work to involve elements of the cosmos”, said Scudder. The combination of the mysterious early cultures of our world as well as the deep search for meaning and compassion she employs create an ethereal experience”. Her work can viewed here www.asiawireart.com.

One of Maine’s most significant photography collectors, Bruce Brown, began collecting photography in earnest in 2000. Since then, Brown’s passion for the discipline and its practitioners has resulted in an extensive collection of photographs. The result is a unique visual conversation about collecting and the diverse practices of contemporary photographers.
