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.
