Kay Lynne Sattler and Robert Merrill Sweeny at Galería San Francisco

By Susan Santiago

Internationally recognized artist Kay Lynne Sattler recalls having always observed her surroundings as sacred for contemplating and capturing inspiration. The artist has been engaged in an exploration of clay, paint, and precious metals for more than four decades, bringing ageless elements together to create original works of art.

Sattler’s inspiration is an intuitive response to linear, textural, and organic forms found within nature. Complex compositions evolve through the tactile and contemplative process of rolling coils of clay and building by hand, an intrinsic part of her practice.

Robert “Bo” Sweeny is a lifelong artist and recent permanent resident of San Miguel de Allende. He holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and has studied with many wonderful artists including Adrian Deckbar, Jane Dill, Harry Callahan, Dale Chihuly, Greg Newington, Ron Pokrasso, Rhett Thurma, and Minor White.

An avid traveler and photographer, Sweeny’s work is reminiscent of the American Precisionist movement, and he is known for his interplay of color and shadow, which creates a sense of dynamic movement.

After he recently returned from Morocco, he began a series of works based on his photographic studies of the local architecture in the North African country, using limited color to accurately capture the unique architectural elements found in Moroccan architecture.
