He grew up near the <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Hanford Atomic Project</span> in Washington State overlooking an ever expanding forest of power lines, huge towers and fences with barbed wire over the top.</p> <p> </p> <p>It is no surprise that this view found its way into his images. Phil Peterson’s work, although essentially abstract, has always been rife with fences and rows of power poles that buzzed in the night. Those shapes are still in his work – marching across the landscape.</p> Fri, 18 Jan 2013 21:34:14 +0000 Ando Shinji, Takahiko Hayashi, Ikuta Koji, Arie Furumoto - New Grounds Print Workshop and Gallery - February 1st, 2013 - February 23rd, 2013 <p>A unique exhibition featuring four different Japanese printmakers who are rising stars in Japan. <b>Ando Shinji’s</b> multi-plate botanical etchings merge the best of Eastern and Western sensibilities. Seeds, fruit and flowers are rendered with masterful while his compositions make beautiful use of the negative space. <b>Takahiko Hayashi</b>’s etchings are composed out of hundreds of detailed lines creating masterfully bold abstractions, often with vibrant color. His work resembles abstract landscapes, and the titles often refer to the movements of the wind, but his pieces also reflect his interest in philosophy such as the writing of Lao-Tse. <b>Arie Furumoto’s</b> abstract etchings are full of vibrant color and movement. These images look so more like paintings and which she achieves by combining the flat color fields of aquatints with the soft textures of softground. Lastly, <b>Ikuta Koji’s</b> black and white mezzotints make full use of this medium where lights are burnished out of a pitted plate. In his realistic images, owls, flowers and the moon emerge out of the darkness of the night. This is an exemplary show where the artist’s medium supports and elevates his or her subject matter.</p> <p></p> Fri, 18 Jan 2013 20:24:58 +0000 - Pop Gallery - January 1st, 2013 - February 24th, 2013 <p style="text-align: justify;">Established January 2007, Pop Gallery continues to raise the bar locally and draw established and emerging Contemporary and New Brow artists to Santa Fe from around the world.

Born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, he immigrated to the United States with his family in 1918, and later studied at the Massachusetts Normal Art School and the School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. He graduated from the latter in 1929 and received its prestigious James William Paige Traveling Fellowship, affording him the opportunity to study in Europe for six years. The swell of European modernism at the time encouraged O’Hara to explore various styles including Surrealism, Cubism, and German Expressionism, all important points of departure for the artist in successive decades.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">O’Hara moved to Albuquerque in 1942, and began his exploration of the printmaking medium with fellow artist Adja Yunkers. Both were visiting professors at the College of Fine Arts, University of New Mexico, from 1949-1950, and according to O’Hara, “The stimulating example of Yunkers’s imaginative approach to the graphics first inspired [me] to try [my] hand at woodcuts and monotypes . . .” In the early 1950s, O’Hara met New Mexico artist Elmer Schooley whose knowledge of lithography fueled and refined O’Hara’s unique style. Through the use of “unorthodox procedures, limitless textured figurations” evolved. By working areas of liquid asphaltum onto the lithographic stone, and through the introduction of wrinkled paper, foil, paper cut-outs, textiles, and mild solvents, O’Hara produced what Schooley called a “fragile evanescence.” His most recognized works are those from the 1950s-‘60s, lauded for their layered color—sometimes muted, sometimes heavily saturated—texture, intersecting forms, and allusion to the mythology and ancient peoples of the Southwest.</p> Sun, 17 Feb 2013 06:58:27 +0000 Ronald Davis - Charlotte Jackson Fine Art (Railyard) - January 25th, 2013 - February 25th, 2013 <p style="text-align: justify;">An exhibition of new work<b><i> </i></b>by <b>Ronald Davis, <i>Pixel Dust Renderings 2012,</i></b><i> </i>will open at <b>Charlotte Jackson Fine Art</b> on <b>January 25 </b>and extend through <b>February 25.</b>  An <b>Opening</b> <b>Reception</b> will be held on <b>Friday, January 25 </b>from <b>5-7 p.m.</b>  The gallery is located in the <b>Railyard Arts District</b> at<b> 554 South Guadalupe Street.</b> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In the late 1980’s Ronald Davis was one of the very first to create 3-D digital artworks, guaranteeing his place as an innovator in the field of computer-aided fine art. The depicted deep space in his work is inspired by the Renaissance perspective of Paolo Uccello and the perspective studies of Duchamp, the galactic drips and splatters of Jackson Pollock, the striated canyons of Clyfford Still, and the push-pull of Hans Hoffman. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The artworks in the <i>Pixel Dust Renderings</i> series were conceived and executed from mid-2011 through 2012. “Pixel Dust” is the artist’s term for a concept of his medium: Particles of light energy (photons) rendered in a composition and viewed at the speed of light on electronic devices. They are virtual three-dimensional graphics – not photographs – created using software and hardware similar to that used by Pixar 3-D animators. Each original image is modeled in Maxon Cinema 4D and rendered using VRAYforC4D Rendersystem running on a Mac Pro 8-core Intel Xeon processor (2008). Adobe Photoshop CS6 is used in post-production. The image is then heat-fused in a photographic dye-sublimation print process onto prepared aluminum using 125-year archival pigments, and set into one inch-deep mounting frames. </p> <p>Davis has been exhibiting his work since 1963 and has had over 65 one-man shows and countless group exhibitions in major galleries and museums worldwide. He continues to live and work at his studio near Taos, New Mexico.</p> Tue, 22 Jan 2013 15:45:25 +0000 - Pop Gallery - February 1st, 2013 - February 28th, 2013 Sat, 16 Feb 2013 01:38:41 +0000 - Canyon Road Contemporary Art - February 1st, 2013 - March 1st, 2013 <p style="text-align: justify;"><b>Collaborate with Us!
