Milt Kobayashi

Milt Kobayashi’s contemporary figurative paintings blend the flat patterning and compositional design of Japanese prints with the techniques of American master painters. “Private portraits in public settings,” his work emphasizes aloof female figures in cafes or restaurants, divorced from their surroundings and absorbed in personal moments. Bright patterns, abstracted color fields and two-dimensional perspectives identify the New York artist’s unique aesthetic.

Kevin Tolman

The exhibition “Sense of Place,” is comprised of paintings which are both poetic glimpses into real places, as well as abstract “places” in their own right. They hint at remnants of experiences and observations, but each also becomes a small world the viewer can wander into and explore. Kevin Tolman was most recently in Portugal, a place where he has spent a great deal of time over the years. Many of the paintings in this exhibition bear the imprint of Tolman's travels in that part of the world, and like the layering of the many cultures evident in the Portuguese landscape, the paintings in this body of work have a layered sense of place that possesses a strong sense of history and depth.

Hung Liu: Catchers


The exhibition showcases Liu’s most recent paintings, primarily of children, inspired by Dorothea Lange’s Dust Bowl-era photography. Liu’s paintings depict children growing up during hard times, struggling to safeguard the joy and innocence of childhood. Though barely able to care for themselves, these children find the compassion to care for each other and for animals. Liu’s exhibition title alludes to her memory of a book she read 50 years prior when she was a student in China–Catcher in the Rye. Like “Catcher” in Salinger’s novel, it is the idealistic child who tries to keep society from falling off the edge into oblivion, both literally and metaphorically.

Tanabe Chikuunsai IV

In the world of Japanese art, it’s hard to miss Tanabe Chikuunsai IV. From his colossal installations at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museé Guimet to recent solo exhibitions in Paris and Belgium, Tanabe has emerged as a leader and representative for a younger generation of bamboo artists.

TAI Modern is pleased to present its upcoming exhibition Tanabe Chikuunsai IV, in which the artist will create a site-specific installation within the gallery’s walls over a two-week period prior to the exhibition’s opening reception.

“For this exhibition, I will create a conceptual bamboo art installation within a gallery space. Beginning in 2011, these large-scale spatial art installations are the basis of my current artistic activities. For installations, I use tiger bamboo with tiger-striped patterns that grow in Suzaki in Kochi prefecture. At the end of each exhibition, the installation is dismantled into raw material. The same material is then used for a different installation to be built in a new space. Although each installation is subsequently deconstructed, the same tiger bamboo is connected to each successive installation,” states the artist.

Paula Castillo | That Mountain Over There (Now I See Her)

I create both intimate and large scale sculptural installations in response to the tensions inherent in the production of ‘place’. Although I am a conceptual and socially engaged artist, I am ultimately a maker. With a straightforward fascination for ideas and objects that grow, transform, and reshape themselves, I create work with a quiet division between the hyper organized desire to dissolve into the world and the need to buttress margins. I am most well-known for my sculpture which utilizes both fabricated and carefully appropriated industrial steel bi-product scavenged from regional fabricators to ‘show and tell’ a piece of the suffocating dislocation of matter. I arrange and weld these modest forms to mimic the manic intensity with which we structure our world, i.e. the human agency to arrange and work nature/ culture.

Natural Beauty Group Exhibition | Martha Mans, Kurt Meer, Cap Pannell

Martha Mans, Kurt Meer and Cap Pannell are teamed together in this exhibition of landscapes that showcases their unique and contrasting interpretations of the natural world.

Martha Mans, creates expressive and energetic scenes of the southwest. With broad strokes and a palette knife, Mans depicts the rhythms of the land she dearly loves. Mans states “the evolution of my painting process has brought me to a point in which the subject, the texture of the oil medium and the physical application of the brushstrokes have become profoundly intertwined.”

For Kurt Meer, his paintings reflect a general sense of place, rather than a specific location. Water, sky and land are like mantras repeated over and over where the image of the landscape simply becomes a point of meditation. Kurt utilizes old masters techniques to create water scenes that possess a dream- like quality.

Cap Pannell interprets nature from his photographs and drawings to create the imagery for his oil paintings. Cap shares “It’s light that sparks my imagination. Light fascinates me. In my landscapes I tend to focus on the graphic quality of the scene and emphasize the light. I manipulate it to express a mood, a time of day, even a season of the year. As for my cloudscapes, they give me the opportunity to approach the abstract.”

New Works by Doug Coffin | From Far East to Southwest

Ellsworth Gallery has taken the Eastern inspiration behind Doug Coffin’s work as the impetus to present "Full Circle: Doug Coffin, from Far East to Southwest," an exhibition that integrates our previously divided areas of concentration. The exhibition title, "Full Circle," refers as much to the graphic forms present throughout Coffin’s work as it does to the sense of “coming full circle,” to reconsidering the relation between Western artists and Eastern aesthetics.

Western art has taken inspiration from the East, particularly since the opening of China and Japan to colonial interests and initiatives around the end of the 19th century. Doug Coffin’s inaugural exhibition with Ellsworth Gallery highlights this deep inspiration, and at times appropriation, that artists located in the West have in relation to Eastern sources — from Van Gogh’s composition and Symbolist sensibilities, to American abstraction and its relation to Zen philosophies.

Coffin’s work harnesses the power of symbols common to both Eastern and Western visual regimes. Suns, moons, and other cyclical features of indigenous systems of knowledge draw formal parallels with the essential elements of symbolism present in many suits of Samurai armor on display. The elegant and angular shapes in the maedate, or frontal decoration on many helmets, echo the curved and horned elements of Coffin’s sculptures. "Ceremonial Zen Sun (Eclipse)," a circular canvas by Coffin, mirrors the forms of rounded Samurai helmets known as jingasa. The rich red of Coffin’s "Abiquiu Zen #2" echoes that of the jinbaori. The red cloth displayed in the jinbaori, or “camp coats,” was originally imported by the Dutch and English, further emphasizing the exchange, material and cultural, between East and West.

Aleta Pippin Solo Exhibition | Landscapes of the Mind

Aleta Pippin’s solo exhibition, Landscapes of the Mind, demonstrates the breath of her work from oil to acrylic and mixed media. But more than the media Pippin uses is the emotion, passion and energy she infuses through her use of color and mark-making. Moving to the desert of Southern California at the age of six, Pippin soon fell in love with the clear light, rich blue sky, long views, and rugged mountains, a stark contrast to her birth state of Michigan. Though nature always plays a role in her work, Aleta has found the emotional attachment to desert environs is now expressing into her paintings, showing up as color, freedom and energetic movement. Exhibition runs 7/3 – 7/17 with an opening reception on Friday, July 5th, 5-7pm.

This year as part of the Santa Fe Art Week, Pippin will have a closing reception on Wednesday, July 17th, 4-7pm. Other gallery artists will also be present on the 17th.

Structural Nature Photography

Nature is a master of artistic expression and she sculpts information in grand, microscopic, fleeting and enduring structures. Patterns are common in nature and occur at different size and time scales and emerge in systems forced out of equilibrium – away from their preferred low-energy-state. The transition process - how change occurs, is always toward greater entropy - increasing disorder. Complex forms evolve from fundamental physics in both the living and non-living worlds which beautifully connects us with the Earth, the sea, and the universe.

One might say that Last Gun is a landscape artist. “I continue to explore color, form, composition, and memory when creating visual narratives. Growing up near the Backbone of the World (Rocky Mountains) front of Montana, to now residing near the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico, I am continually inspired by these landscapes.”

LIFE IN FLUX – To Challenge Apathy in the 21st Century

Work on display through July 31, 2019

In a time where living demands homogeneity and compliance, the passionate creative voice of four local Santa Fe contemporary artist-designers is distinctly singular and clear.  What remains curious and inspired after meaning is lost is what connects their work. How to draw nearness from the vastness of the inner chasm, the personal solitude that reflects a world that alienates? The line that connects them in fragility, self-confidence, grit, transcendence, growth, and ultimately transformation, shows the edge between realities and the fierce by-product of a survival instinct turned to poetry, metaphor, beauty, and commerce. Power couple Michael Jantzen and Ellen Jantzen, artist-entrepreneur extraordinaire, Justin Crowe, and audacious sculptor-funambulist Jamie Hamilton challenge the familiar and invite us to reflect and deepen in the timeless emotions that emerge from fear, life and death preoccupations, and infinite evolution. As if from a zero-zone of antigravity suspension, this is the place where true innovation unfolds. Disciplines merge, and new thought processes are born from recurrent cycles of change.

James Drake | Que Linda La Brisa

On view: May 31 - June 30, 2019

The art of James Drake lives in the borderlands. This is not just because so much of his work of the past 40 years has been inspired, in theme and content, by Drake's time living along the US/Mexican border in El Paso, Texas. The borderlands are not just an imaginary line drawn in the earth between two countries. Borders appear between people: where bodies meet, where skin touches. They appear in ecosystems: where a wetland turns back into desert. They occur in our own minds: where two ideas encounter and resist one another. Borders arise along lines of tension, the places where desires meet.

Z.Z. Wei | Solitude

Paintings, oil on canvas

Wei was born in 1957, in Beijing, China. He started painting at young 
age during China’s Culture Revolution. Art and Painting were his 
sanctuary from the turmoil of his school and family. He graduated from 
Central Institute of Arts and Design in Beijing in 1984.

Wei came to the United States in 1989. The rural 
landscape of America has transformed him as a person and an artist. It 
represents the beginning of a fresh lifestyle and art. Wei unites his 
art and life experiences in China with his perspectives inspired by 
traveling the backroads of America, creating a rich and poetic oeuvre. 
His original and unique interpretation of the landscapes captures the 
characteristics and spirits of America that touch the hearts of a wide 
range of audiences from different cultures and backgrounds.

Wei’s style and imagery are heavy with references to 
Americana. However, they are abstractions of his views. Richly complex, 
they are filled with humor and loneliness, peacefulness and pain. They 
balance on the knife-edge of meaning, tempting those who choose to look 
beyond the mundane to experience a unique and timeless look at life.

His tireless traveling is testament not only to his love for the western landscape but also his devotion to getting the perfect shot. The Forgotten Horizon will feature work from his parks project as well as other photographs from Brothers expeditions throughout the west. For Brothers, documenting the parks is not solely about artistic expression but also an obligation to preserve our public lands:

“Our National Parks are not only our “best idea”, they are our greatest asset. They leave each of us with lasting impressions of joy and wonder; instilling a sense of pride and patriotism for who we are and what we can be.”

During her 40-year career as a painter, Woolworth has garnered a global following of collectors, earned numerous awards and grants, and spent many years creating and conducting workshops in the South of France. Woolworth’s oils and gouache merge toward the abstract figurative and are created with a palette that soothes the eye and spirit while contributing to an overall feeling of harmony and warmth within the viewer.

My paintings attempt to capture an intense moment in time that rings absolutely true. A scene, a certain light, colors arranged that pierce through one’s center to extract an emotion. A search for beauty in the familiar, unseen until revealed by the work.

2019 Hands-On Curatorial Program Exhibition

What is storytelling to you? Think about how many stories you’ve told in your life and how many you’ve heard; throughout the world many stories have been told in their own way, either by art, song, or words. Also, different cultures have their own stories that each hold significant value to them. A story can be told to a group of people and the way that each person receives it may be altered. This is the essence of storytelling. It keeps its original message, but changes with the person. That’s why in our exhibition we are focusing on the notion of storytelling and the many different ways that we can do so.

When we started to discuss our exhibition we realized, the pieces at Ralph T Coe Center have a story to tell. As we acknowledge the object’s own history, we want to take it a step further. To add our own narrative. We want to share our stories and create new ones, adding to the already diverse collection of stories that are present in our world. Recollective Echo, to us, means remembering moments in time, stories and continuing to tell them so that they may go on to be repeated and influential in one’s life.—Hands-On Curators

R. Patrick Harris | Alchemy

Chiaroscuro is pleased to announce its season opener, a solo exhibition by R. Patrick Harris, titled: Alchemy. On view May 3 – June 1, 2019, with public opening reception Friday, May 3, from 5-7 pm. Harris is an accomplished painter who strives to create images of concepts that prompt thinking again and again about the meaning of a particular circumstance or experience. He has been called a “serial artist” for his extensive use of repetitive forms and figures to illustrate complex subtleties between paintings and seemingly disparate subject matter.

In Alchemy, the complete series consists of abstracted images of clocks, roller coasters and mountains hung behind a distorted Greek flag pattern, which ties the series together and allows you to break down each individual image into abstracted parts. The images behind the Greek flag template can seem photographic or hyper realistic, bending into a surreal description of everyday subjects. His brush marks are practically undetectable, yet these large scale paintings set up interesting juxtapositions of color, form and gesture, while simultaneously asking questions of content, concept and idea. Harris is a painter who has the unwavering conviction to see his ideas through, even when the hours turn into months, and months turn into years of labor. Harris explains, “Art happens when your interior landscape melds with the outer world.”

Harris is a veteran Santa Fe based painter and educator, originally from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He has exhibited widely in New Mexico, Colorado and Texas. In 2000, Harris received the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant for his efforts. This is Harris’ first exhibition at Chiaroscuro.

Solo Exhibition by Joel Orozco

For the past two and a half years, Orozco has also been working on a project that involves the collaboration of the Tarahumaras wearing different masks. Rooted in the tradition of magic realism Orozco combines the mixture of Mexican folk tales to create a theater-like representation where mystifying stories composed of strangeness align with an invented reality that his mind perceives of cultural dreams, religious ceremonies, and personal fantasies. He believes that photography can be about creating fantasy, and is not only about seeing with your eyes, but is also about using the imagination. “The camera can grant us the power to open secret passageways to a whole entirely different world that only exists in our own reality. Although photography is commonly associated with fact, its parallel power has been a medium for fiction from the very beginning of its invention. As an artist, I am still learning the fundamental value of the camera: and how it can show us the world around us.”
