Light, Wood, Wax, Fire
artists use elemental materials and methods to create with
light, wood, wax, and fire. This exhibition is an elegy to the organic. Life
sways inside every piece: Santa Fe
a dramatic cloud formation pinned against the sky; a flower portrait at once sculptural and ethereal; a table that evokes the spirit of the wood from which it emerged; the shimmering functionality of a micaceous clay pot; the luster and patina in the marriage of wax and rust; the lush geometry of light portrayed in a shower of sunlight; the wild stillness of birds on a branch; the contained fire radiating from a ceramic sculpture; the watchfulness embedded in a closely observed landscape.
These artists understand what it means to be of this world, to be comfortable with the materials and methods they have chosen, and to be greedy for their own moments of alchemy. Each in their own different ways, these artists live inside light, wood, wax, and fire.
The exhibition runs from November 10 through
December 8, 2012 in The La
Tienda Exhibit Space at Eldorado, . Gallery hours: , Wednesday through Saturday. Santa Fe
