Galerie BMG is pleased to host an exhibition by West Coast artist, Mary Daniel Hobson, entitled "Remnants." Combining images selected from several of her recent photographic series, the exhibition is a testament to Hobson's creative use of mixed media and collage to express her passion for photography as well as her fascination with surrealism.

In Mapping the Body, Hobson explores, via layered photographic collages, the emotions and experiences that become imprinted on our body and enter beneath the surface of the skin to become part of our inner worlds. Milagros, a series dedicated to hope and positive change in the world, combines photographs of people's arms and hands with symbolic images along with their own handwritten messages expressing their wishes for miracles or positive change in their lives. The more recent images in the Evocations series combine a sense of mystery and fantasy using constructions of bottles with photographs, old maps and art papers.

The exhibition's various themes are unified by the creativity, intensity and beauty inherent in Hobson's images. The use of symbols and objects of mysterious significance intensifies the dreamlike quality, the emotional awareness of a fragment of memory which remains just out of reach.
