Opening: Ryan Singer | Childhood Mythologies

March 29 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Albuquerque artist Ryan Singer unveils a solo exhibition of acrylic paintings of Navajo Nation landscapes populated by cultural icons. The artist’s vivid imagery showcases original narratives inspired by dreams and childhood memories while interweaving subtle socio-political commentary.

“My older sister was really into sci-fi. If she wanted to see a movie, she had to drag me along,” says Albuquerque painter Ryan Singer. “I remember watching Star Wars, Godzilla, and old black-and-white movies like Frankenstein or The Mummy.” Pretty soon, the iconic beasts had traveled from the silver screen into the artist’s psyche—plaguing Singer with vivid nightmares of monsters standing outside his bedroom window or chasing him through his neighborhood. Years later, the artist still has intense dreams, but they’re a welcomed occurrence. “It keeps my mind focused,” Singer explains. “It feels like there’s a spirit or muse guiding me and influencing me.” In his solo exhibition Childhood Mythologies, opening Friday, March 29 from 5 to 7 pm, Singer presents vibrant acrylic paintings imbued with his own youthful legends: Navajo landscapes populated by characters from comic books and popular culture.

Jeremy Thomas is always asking questions. He follows threads of inquiry carefully, persistently; using his art as the net he casts out into the dark as he goes. This continuing exploration colors (quite literally) the shape and form of the work he creates. In this way, each series of work form Thomas forms a kind of record - not of answers - but of a process of investigation, an experience of the world, see through a unique lens.

Randall Reid: Past and Present

April 5 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Nüart Gallery presents, Past and Present, a solo exhibition of new mixed media work by the artist Randall Reid. The exhibition will run April 5 through April 21, with an opening reception on Friday, April 5 from 5- 7 pm. Please join us for hors d’oeuvres and live music.

Known for his potent re-mixing and re-contextualizing of found and historic materials, Randall Reid engineers salvaged steel and wood into sensuous formal color compositions. Reid’s steel-framed objet trouvé are reclaimed from other eras and through the artist’s care and craftsmanship are granted the gravity and dignity of artifacts. Highly charged, tactile windows into the recent industrial past, some of Reid’s materials date back to the 1800s, some to the 1970s, and every era in-between. All have a palpable sense of history. There is a balance and harmony to Reid’s work that make the compositions at once contemporary and timeless– formal yet in possession of an effortless-seeming organic unity.

Randall Reid’s latest body of work, Past and Present, is forged of materials and impressions of eras past. With his refined understanding of form and content, and working with the skill of both an artist and craftsman, Reid redirects fragments of collected historical material such as signage, wood, and steel. Working with remnants of functional ephemera including cold war era panels, Victorian instruments, printmaking tools, and bits of structures that could be barns or boathouses— for example— Reid creates vignettes freed from their original context, but full of reminiscence. His pieces surface dormant memories and bring fresh life with new meaning to conceptions of the past.

 Reid was born in Fort Worth, Texas in 1956. He has participated in over 300 exhibitions and is represented in numerous private and public collections including: The American Embassy, Kuwait, The Arkansas Art Center, The Austin Museum of Art, The Hoyt Institute of Fine Arts, The Masur Museum and The Muscarelle Museum of Fine Arts (College of William and Mary). He currently resides in San Marcos, Texas where he has been a Professor of Art and Design at Texas State University San Marcos for over three decades.

Charlie Burk: Journey In Abstraction

March 22 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Exhibition opening reception and meet the artist:
Friday, March 22, 2019 5-7 pm.
Show dates: March 22-April 3, 2019.

“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” —John Muir

“In order to understand something large, we isolate and examine its details. This rather simple concept is one that effloresces with virtuosic color and stunning clarity in the paintings of Charlie Burk. A lifelong resident of New Mexico, Burk departs from contemporary art’s increasingly conceptual protocols with depictions of light-saturated thickets of grass and sky that bear witness to the earth’s abundant, simple beauty. Nature is Burk’s consort and constant, and grass, arguably it’s most humble and everyday feature, is his main visual objective. Close-cropped, ground-level perspectives focus our attention on vignettes, not panoramas, of landscape. In limiting our perspective, Burk imbues small sections of earth with resounding significance. This sort of pictorial distillation manifests in meticulously conceived paintings that are almost obsessive in their desire to reproduce the untrammeled and effortless harmony of wilderness settings. Burk’s lush, crisply realistic depictions of grassy vistas advocate a distinctly unusual hierarchy of genres, wherein nature’s humble ground floor is assigned top compositional billing. From this intimate perspective, the earth’s subtle rhythms occur as both vast and bracingly proximate. Charlie Burk’s carefully chosen, tautly focused vantages are steadfastly modern in outlook and affect.”—Iris McLister

For decades Charlie Burk was a photorealist watercolor painter. Charlie explains, “In 1999 I left watercolors behind and began painting in oil. The oil media made it possible for me to be spontaneous. It liberated my mind to quickly shift further into the abstraction I longed to explore. The art moved beyond realism into new unexplored territory.” As gallerist Karla Winterowd observes, “For Charlie the world of painting opened even wider with the use of oil paint. The closer he moved into examination of nature the more liberated his brush became until abstraction prevailed.”

LOUVIERE+VANESSA : RETRO-ACTIVE

A retrospective exhibition of photo-based artists Louviere+Vanessa including past and current work.

Opening Reception: Friday, March 1, 5-7pm
Exhibition is on view March 1 - April 20, 2019

Obscura Gallery presents a solo exhibition with the New Orleans prolific duo Louviere+Vanessa, including past and current work from their various series over the last 15 years. Louviere+Vanessa’s style exudes a Southern Gothic pairing of transgression and beauty through mystery, dark humor, and the supernatural, often involving the figurative use of protagonists such as humans and animals alluding to literature and philosophy. The artists effectively combine the mediums and nuances of film, photography, painting, and printmaking resulting in mixed media works that use gold and silver leaf, resin, varnish, wax, charcoal, and various other mediums, as well as the artists handmade frames.

 The exhibition opens with a reception on Friday, March 1, 2019 from 5-7pm at Obscura Gallery, 1405 Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe, New Mexico. The exhibition is on view through April 20, 2019.

Lisa Klakulak: Since Taos

February 22 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Lisa Klakulak presents Since Taos: Contraction of Mass, Concision of Thought. The solo exhibition of 13 felt-based sculptures was created over a period of nearly two decades, since the freewheeling artist moved away from Taos, New Mexico in 2001. The collection simultaneously acts as a vivid portrait of Klakulak’s emotional journey and manifestation of her unique way of processing the world through fiber creations. “Like any piece of art you make, you are releasing an idea into the object,” Klakulak says. “It’s a completion of a certain cycle, and it’s interesting when someone on the other side spins it into their own emotive universe.” Klakulak’s work voices ideas about growth, human connection, mental stability, and the formation of personhood, as well as social commentary on issues of gender, income inequality, and culture.

Klakulak appears at a preview artist talk of Since Taos on Friday, February 22 from 4 to 5 pm. The opening reception directly follows, from 5 to 7 pm. The artist presents a registration-only felting workshop on February 23 and 24, 2019.
