ARTWORK BY ANA SERRANO

Ana Serrano, “Pretty monumental”

at the Cal Poly University Art

Gallery

Friday, Sept. 28 Artist talk, 5-6 pm

Reception, 6-7:30 pm

Dexter Building

(34), room

171 NEW TIMES How long have

you been interested in miniature buildings

and diorama-like sculptures? ANA SERRANO I’ve been

creating these type of miniatures for about six years now, but really I

feel I’ve gravitated to dioramas since elementary school. I would get really excited when I had to make shoebox dioramas for a school project. NEW TIMES Your work focuses on the folk culture of Los Angeles’ lower-income Hispanic neighborhoods, in a way that seems both endearing and startlingly honest, like the cardboard version of street photography. How familiar to you are the scenes you recreate? Are they at all like the environment you grew up in? ANA SERRANO I feel very connected to these places. I was around them growing up but I was also around neighborhoods that were the opposite. I think experiencing both made me aware of the differences. NEW TIMES What do you feel when creating these buildings and environments? Is it reverence, nostalgia, irony? ANA SERRANO I think what I feel is closer to reverence, I definitely feel like I’m celebrating and representing these environments in a positive light. It’s interesting you mention nostalgia, because I never feel nostalgic when I’m creating the work but many older people have mentioned feeling nostalgic when viewing the work. It reminds them of a time when they lived in L.A. or a similar neighborhood. 32 • New Times • September 20 - September 27, 2012 • www.newtimesslo.com

The Joy Of

Beading

PHOTO BY STEVE E. MILLER

The arts community didn’t really know what to do with Diana Stanton when she moved to San Luis Obispo 10 years ago.

“It’s a little dangerous actually, trying to get through it without crashing,” admitted Stanton.

Isabella Jewelry UNIQUE PIECES

Stanton plans to perform a brief improvisational dance while attached to a heart monitor. Of course, the piece could turn out to be total chaos, Stanton conceded. “It gets torn apart and twisted around and shifted around, lots of metaphors,” Stanton revealed of the table, which is really three smaller tables brought together.

Stanton’s dancers wear black cocktail dresses, their fine attire barely concealing their primitive drive to one-up one another.

“I’m less attached to meaning in dance and more interested in concept,” explains Stanton. Forget everything you know about dance and sink your teeth into Orchesis (a Greek word meaning the act or art of dance).

Stanton defined heaven as the endorphin rush that accompanies intense physical output.

Despite the company’s mysterious, one-word titles—Shift, Continuum, Impact—there’s typically no overriding theme to an Orchesis concert. The Orchesis concert features the choreography of nationally acclaimed guest artists, Cal Poly faculty, local choreographers, and selected top dance students. The Orchesis concert doesn’t intend to be modern, but after investigating what they want to accomplish in a performance it ends up looking contemporary, and not at all not formulaic. Orchesis is grounded in abstract ideas and stories, whether about beauty, deep emotion, or even mathematics, expressed in movement, according to Stanton. That is what Orchesis is all about: dances have different meanings, some have no meaning at all, other than the beauty of line and design. —compiled from New Times archives
