 \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nb sp\; &ldquo\;While it is my foremost intention to construct work that is im mediately pleasing\, an element is always present identifying the underlyin g truth of unfairness and inequality in life that touches us all.&rdquo\;\n

-Jenny Honnert Abell.

 \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nbs p\; \; \; \; If the role of the artist is to bring beauty into the world\, to reflect the state of our society\, and also to help us see m ore deeply into the workings of our souls\, hearts\, and minds\; then Jenny Honnert Abell succeeds brilliantly. She taps into the sublime beauty of he r own inner world\, and brings this imagery up from the ether for all of us to relate to. Chances are\, by facing these images\, we can relate to her work with parts of our own inner realities. Jenny summons the subconscious with her combination of worlds\, and brings psychologically complex and bea utiful imagery to life in her works. She transforms false eyelashes into ha loes\, leather glove fingers into tree tendrils\, and dryer lint into luxur ious fur to create otherworldly fantasies. Jenny also celebrates the beauty of the bizarre. She loves anything new and unusual\, typical of those who are highly creative. Her works are beautiful\, and they are also delightful ly unique. Her work will cause one to think past any surface level aestheti c\, as all of her pieces contain a fragment of something strangely wonderfu l.

\n

 \; \; \; \; \ ; \; \; \; \; \; \; In addition to Jenny&rsquo\;s e xhibition\, we are featuring work by our newest artist\, Holly Roberts. Hol ly is well known in New Mexico\, and her works are in museum collections th roughout the country as well as internationally abroad. Both Holly and Jenn y combine images and materials from the natural and fabricated worlds withi n their works. Holly uses photos of hair\, vegetation\, etc.\, combined wit h her own painted backgrounds\, and assembles these pieces into part animal \, part human figures\, as a sort of contemporary totem.

Quick Artist Bios: Jenny Honnert A bell and Holly Roberts

\n

  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;Jenny&rsquo\;s collage wo rk began in 1995 when she could no longer fight off the oppressive urge she felt to make pictures out of the harvest of years of scavenging. \; A hunger to combine these images and textures lying all over her studio initi ally drove her imagination to create unintentional plant-like forms. As the se &ldquo\;flowers&rdquo\; emerged\, her own language of formality develope d\, and exploring her obsession for meticulous detail was being satisfied. The relentless seduction that materials have had on her\, have found a wort hy purpose. Jenny&rsquo\;s appreciation of Ellsworth Kelly&rsquo\;s way of seeing things contributed to the way she transforms visual observations int o her work. There is architecture and construction. Jenny&rsquo\;s father w as an architect and his drafts on tracing paper\, as well as later watercol or fragments\, have shown up in several of her pieces. \; There is homa ge to fine craft. Hand-formed clay elements\, stitching\, and quilting are a constant in her work.

\n

 \;   \;  \;  \;  \;  \; Holly Roberts\, born in Santa Fe\, New M exico\, earned an M.F.A. from Arizona State University\, Tempe\, in 1981. H er pieces are nationally and internationally exhibited and have been publis hed in three monographs. She twice received National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships. \; She currently lives and works in Corrales\, New Mexico with her husband\, Robert Wilson. Roberts works intuitively\, painting an abstract painting on a panel before applying her signature photo fragments. She uses muted colors of paint and black-and-white photographs to create i mages that are filled with humor\, irony and mythology. Her metamorphic bei ngs illustrate archetypal emotional or dream states\, although her subject matter has expanded from the internal to a wider worldview\, touching on re ligion\, technology and the environment. \; Robert&rsquo\;s art is bold \, a bit brash\, and almost always irreverent. \;
