Andy Mattern's exhibition Object Image is comprised of two series\, one of photograms and the ot her of photographs. A photogram is created by placing an object directly on photographic paper and and exposing it  \;to light - effectively creat ing a photographic imprint of the object. The intention behind the photogra phs is similar: to represent an object to scale with as much visual informa tion as possible.

Mattern&rsquo\;s creative process involves the collection and archiving of mundane\, useless objects. In his studio are d rawers full of carefully cataloged items\, collected over time. As individu al objects\, they lack purpose but as a collection\, they become a a study of traces\, actions\, byproducts\, and results.

Zane Bennett C ontemporary Art is pleased to announce Under 35: Part III\, an exh ibition of works by Nicola Ló\;pez\, Nouel Riel and Jack Warren. The opening is Friday\, January 30\, 2015\, at the gallery: 43 5 South Guadalupe Street\, across from the rail station\, from 5:00 - 7:00 pm. Artist Nouel Riel will be present.

\n

Under 35: Part III is an exhibition of artists who create work that reinvents mor e traditional approaches to materials\, compositions and concepts\, represe nting an ever changing definition of art and how materials are used. It ser ves to showcase work that will appeal to the upcoming generation of artists and art collectors.

\n

Brooklyn based artist\, Nicola Ló\;pez wil l be showing twelve works in Under 35: Part III. Born in Santa Fe< em>\, Ló\;pez attended Columbia University for both her BA and M FA. The artist has already participated in many prestigious exhibitions and received fellowships and grants\, including a commissioned installation at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (NYC)\, and exhibition at the Soloman R. Gu ggenheim Museum (NYC) as well as grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation.\n

This success comes as no surprise when viewing her extraordinary work. The work focuses on the co ncept of the landscape created by 21st century living. As Ló\;pez exp lains: "The landscape that we live in has become saturated with signs of ea sy mobility\, speed\, constant communication\, imposition of structure\, in sistence on growth and glorification of technology that have come to be so characteristic of our society today. My work incorporates these signs\, exa ggerating and reconfiguring them in order to build maps that convey the sen se of wonder and vertigo that is inevitable as we face the landscape of tod ay&rsquo\;s world."

\n

L ó\;pez notes that these landscapes\, created with a variety of materi als including ink\, watercolor\, molding paste\, graphite\, oil stick and p hoto-lithography on paper\, reflect neither a dystopian or utopian view but rather how she experiences and moves through the current societal landscape. It is cartography of the 21st century experience.

\n

Santa Fe based artist Noue l Riel's mixed media works are her way of mapping or navigating th e world\, especially the emotional landscape she resides in and the adventu rous life she has lived. Nouel Riel is a recent graduate of Santa Fe Univer sity of Art and Design (BFA\, Painting 2014.) It was in Santa Fe\, at SFUAD \, that Riel found a sense of solitude that she felt she required to focus on her work\, and her ideas and concepts began to truly take on a life of t heir own.

\n

What may speak to the viewe r in Nouel Riel's work is not only the unidentifiable yet intriguing use of materials including ink\, charcoal\, pencil\, pen\, acrylic\, salt\, soil and other organic materials\, but that each piece\, though touching on diff erent experiences and impressions in her life\, hold a sort of conversation - a thread of her life experience\, especially the emotional terrain in wh ich she has traveled thus far. The viewer can easily look upon these works and apply that first glance to his/her own personal journey. Though each wo rk is deeply personal for the artist\, it does not exclude or insist upon t he viewer\, leaving the works open to interpretation.

\n

Nouel Riel will also present a series of s ix scans. Each scan is of part of the body and in color and composition\, r eflect a dreamlike quality or a sense of a memory almost lost. "Manufac tured Intimacy : for relationships on the go are a series of scans doc umenting the eventual desperateness of long distance relationships. The imm ense need for feel of body\, touch of hair\, to kiss another's face. The Ro meo &\; Juliet closeness between humans that will never be fulfilled. Pe ople cut off portions of themselves to give to others in hope they will be loved\, yet most often those limbs go dead and their tunnel of openness bec omes a very literal tomb."

\n

Brooklyn based artist Jack Warren's work rests perfe ctly between the chaotic nature of Nouel Riel's work and the more orderly c ompositions of Nicola Ló\;pez. His work strives to address the limits of visual language and symbolism and creates a link between found material s and the finished work. Warren's process is one of ever changing imagery " in which images and landscapes emerge through a history of layers\, each la yer representing a dynamic conversation with the predicate underlying mater ial."

\n

The artist uses a variety of ma terials including loose pages from books\, magazines and other periodicals. As a result\, the artist's mark-making and source material engage each oth er with intriguing results. As Warren further explains: "A personal lexicon of forms interprets\, reconfigures\, and defaces the underlying informatio n\, creating a &ldquo\;border zone\,&rdquo\; where seemingly dissimilar and incongruous ideas are made to interact. This random but methodical process evolves from abstractions of common figures\, symbols and language. My cur rent paintings and drawings are maps of a dream world extracted by way of s cientific process and accidental design. As experiments in incidental const ruction\, imaginary forms emerge through a system of controlled catastrophe \, in which idiosyncratic lines and random compositions outline a fragmente d spectrum of potential realities. These alien landscapes\, electrified por traits and distorted architectural designs represent pieces of my subconsci ous relationship to the subject matter\, invoking a sense of controlled man ia and intense reorganization of indefinable elements. This work seeks a sy nchronicity of indeterminacy\, a broad coalescence of questions answered on ly by the individual interpretations of its audience."

In "Legacy of Landscape" at Le wAllen Galleries in the Santa Fe Railyard\, local photographer\, Steven Wil liams explores environments discovered during his travels. This showcase ex hibition opens on January 30th with an artist&rsquo\;s reception from 5 -7 pm and runs through February 22nd.

Arresting visions of the S outhwest and Midwest countryside\, captured in traditional black and white Silver Gelatin Prints\, reflect the consumption\, abandonment\, and reveren ce for landscape. Some images record unknown acts of love or observation\, while others intimate hidden mystery or the passage of time. As a landscape &rsquo\;s history fades\, the land itself becomes legacy.

&ldq uo\;The landscape I photograph reflects my wanderings that become my own pi lgrimages as I explore traces a human hand has left behind. Often without u nderstanding the history behind what I see\, the remains I record allow me to probe the relevance of landscape to how we interpret our own lives\,&rdq uo\; says Williams.

Working in large format\, with an 8&rdquo \;x10&rdquo\; camera and negatives\, allows Williams to capture greater det ail and tonal range but also limits his covertness as a photographer. Thus his efforts not only produce strikingly beautiful reproductions of often un noticed vignettes\, but unable to avoid detection by residents\, each photo graph he takes absorbs the personal anecdotes relayed to him by the locals.

Born in Jamestown\, North Dakota\, to a farming family\, Wil liams&rsquo\; upbringing instilled an understanding of taking care of the l and as well as using the land. While attending undergraduate school at the University of Michigan and graduate school at the Cranbrook Academy of Art\ , Williams was struck by the effects the auto industry had had on the local landscape and the way communities had put it to use\, building into it and around it. His photographs are currently included in "Poetics of Light: Pi nhole Photography" at the New Mexico History Museum.

An intimate relationship between subjects and objects

\n

On February 1 3\, Greenberg Fine Art will offer locals and guests of Santa Fe the chance to experience &lsquo\;A Show of Pairs\,&rsquo\; a collection that boasts th e exquisite talents of Laurin McCracken\, Michael DeVore\, Karol Mack\, Ali ce Williams and Richard Weinstein. &ldquo\;A show of Pairs explores the int imate relationship between subjects and objects. What could be more univers al?&rdquo\; Says Paul Hartsock\, Owner of Greenberg Fine Art. &ldquo\;So mu ch of life is about pairing. A pair of apples\, two people at a café\ ;\, or even pairing light with shadow.&rdquo\;

\n

The Diversity between the se elite artists combined with the harmonious feeling of pairing\, will len d its hand to a most memorable show. &ldquo\;We have a natural tendency to want to pair things together\, it is a kind of human progress that we natur ally search out.&rdquo\; Says Michael DeVore &ldquo\;Perhaps we are drawn t o the idea of kindred spirits and harmony\, the balance of pairing one thin g with another.&rdquo\;

\n

Opening on the Eve of Valentines\, &lsquo\;A Sho w of Pairs&rsquo\; will indeed radiate our natural love of pairs. &ldquo\;P airing comes down to symbols of communication. It&rsquo\;s interaction betw een things which are inanimate\, not human\,&rdquo\; Says Karol Mack &ldquo \;Just like the aspen groves share a root and the trees intertwine\, it is a symbol that we as humans need interaction with one another.&rdquo\;

&ldquo\;It will not satisfy th e intelligent eye to paint a lone mesa like an inflated haystack of Monet. The sense of form in New Mexico is for me one of the profoundest\, most ori ginal and most beautiful I have personally experienced.&rdquo\; Marsden Har tley\, El Palacio\, 1918

In the early decades of the t wentieth century\, a group of radical\, adventurous artists sought to creat e an entirely new style of painting. Rejecting the traditions of the past\, many of these self-described &ldquo\;Modernists&rdquo\; took their inspira tion from the dramatic landscape of New Mexico. Where an early generation o f artists had portrayed the romantic lure of the American Southwest during the nineteenth-century using European Academic painting traditions to repre sent the environment and inhabitants of the region as exotic\, Modern artis ts took a very different approach. Modernism Made in New Mexico\, an exhibition organized by the Georgia O&rsquo\;Keeffe Museum\, traces this journey through the work of fifteen pioneering artists who found inspirati on in New Mexico&rsquo\;s stark landscape\, distinct adobe architecture\, a nd vibrant cultures. The artwork on view spans the first four decades of th e twentieth century\, from a scene of majestic beauty painted in 1902 by Th omas Moran to the abstract Modernist composition of Raymond Jonson\, create d in 1940. The exhibition investigates how the high desert landscape and th e local cultures of New Mexico inspired a radical new direction in American Modernism during the first half of the twentieth century. It explores the unique creative efforts among some of America&rsquo\;s most important artis ts\, leaders in the development of an unmistakably American style of Modern ism\, one made in New Mexico. Though far from influential art centers like New York City\, the sense of place found in this region dramatically change d the look of American art.

 \;The earliest painting in the exhibition\, Moran&rsquo\;s The Road to Acoma (1902)\, portrays a natural geological wonder meant to rival the man-made monuments of the old world. It is painted in a traditional style that creates an illusion of de pth and distance. Such landscapes supported the formation of an American id entity and fueled a sense of national pride\, even though European preceden ts largely inspired the style. In clear contrast\, the Modern artists of th e 1920s and 30s sought a new\, distinctly American style of art. Rejecting tradition\, they favored bold\, abstracted forms that broke free from the i llusion of depth\, creating simplified and stylized landscapes that express ed their personal\, subjective encounter with nature and response to the re gion\, rather than trying to imitate the exact visual appearance of a locat ion.

This did not happen overnight. For an artist like Robert Henri\, who was considered in the vanguard of American painting before 1910 but seemed increasingly conservative and out-of-fashion in subsequent year s\, a trip to the Southwest offered the possibility of reinvigorating his c areer. \; He first visited Santa Fe 1916\, in search of new artistic in spiration. Two close friends and colleagues &ndash\; George Bellows and Joh n Sloan &ndash\; followed his lead. \; They were followed by even more radically Modern artists\, including the self-described &ldquo\;ultra moder nist&rdquo\; Marsden Hartley\, who made his first visit in 1918\, as did An drew Dasburg. During the next decade many more Modernists arrived. Included in this exhibition are Jozef Bakos\, Stuart Davis\, Edward Hopper\, Raymon d Jonson\, John Marin\, Georgia O&rsquo\;Keeffe\, and Cady Wells. They brou ght their Modernist style and pursued a regionalist sensibility based on Ne w Mexico. Their purpose was to evoke a sense of place\, but they avoided cr eating representations that imitated the visual appearance of the land\, in stead favoring simplified\, abstracted compositions and bold colors.

The impact of New Mexico and the duration of their stays varied. Som e returned to New York after only one visit\, never to return again\; other s returned frequently or relocated permanently. The experience dramatically changed the work of some and others resisted the drama and color of the la ndscape. Marsden Hartley created vibrant\, dynamic pastel landscapes like < em>Pueblo Mountain\, N.M. (1918) while staying in the area\, but most of his New Mexico paintings were actually created from memory in the subseq uent decade in New York and Europe. Stuart Davis refused to paint the color s of the landscape and created grisaille (monochrome) paintings like El ectric Bulb\, New Mexico (1923). John Marin was challenged by the vast landscape during his first visit to Taos. Upon his return in 1930\, he exp lored strategies for framing the view that resolved his dilemma in watercol ors like Mountains (Sangre de Cristo). He enclosed vast panoramas in abstract lines of color that created an oscillation between pure paintin g at the edges and moments of illusionistic space at the center of the work . \;

Among the artists who came to New Mexico\, only a few& mdash\;Dasburg\, Jonson\, O&rsquo\;Keeffe\, and Sloan settled permanently. These artists experienced a personal connection to the desert landscape tha t transformed their lives and art. O&rsquo\;Keeffe brought her modernist se nsibilities and techniques to a new subject matter. She created abstract co mpositions that hover on the surface of the canvas\, yet remained true to t he contours and intense colors of the land\, as in Black Mesa Landscape \, New Mexico / Out Back of Marie's II (1930). Like O&rsquo\;Keeffe\, Sloan built a house and acquired a familiarity with the land that inspired his work in paintings such as Storm Over the Jemez (1923).
In addition to the early work of Moran and Cassidy\, the exhibition in cludes a few notable exceptions to the shared pursuits of the Modernists. F or example\, Thomas Hart Benton declared himself an enemy of modernism\, ye t his response to the intense and unexpected colors of the natural surround ings inspired a unique expressive style in the painting Train on the De sert (1926 or 1927). Raymond Jonson a founder of the Transcendental Pa inting Group\, whose members were committed to a distinctive abstract movem ent\, painted Oil No. 5 in 1940. Though this abstraction may seem out of place in the exhibition\, it evolved from his earlier work inspired by the New Mexico landscape. Yet by 1935\, just as the New York artists beg an to seek a regionalist identity for their modernism\, Jonson moved toward visually intangible subjects in nonobjective paintings\, free of any obvio us reference to the natural world.

It includes paintings of the landscape\, bones\, and landscapes with bones and flowers\, her most ic onic contribution to American modernism\, such as Red Hills and White Flowe r (1937)\, Untitled (Red and Yellow Cliffs) (1940)\, and Pedernal (1945).&n bsp\; In 1934\, on O&rsquo\;Keeffe&rsquo\;s first visited to the ranch\, sh e was inspired to create four paintings. She returned the next year to pain t more of the eroded hills and rocky mesas and in 1940 she made it her home \, when she bought a hacienda style house. Each summer afterwards\, the rem ote site fifty miles north of Santa Fe\, became the center of her creative life. \;

O&rsquo\;Keeffe&rsquo\;s traditional adobe house fr amed a patio which opened to a magnificent view of a massive flat-topped mo untain known as the Cerro Pedernal (Flint Hill). It was twelve miles from h er home\, but it became an intimate view as she painted it repeatedly. She referred to it lovingly as &ldquo\;my mountain.&rdquo\; The paintings inclu ded in the exhibition date from the 1930s and 40s when she experimented wit h simplified abstractions and complex compositions in which bones and flowe rs float above the horizon \; of the distinctive mountain.

O n the opposite side of her house\, O&rsquo\;Keeffe claimed a small corner r oom for sleeping next to her studio\; both rooms offered her immediate acce ss to the nearby red hills\, great cliffs\, and dry arroyos. \; &ldquo\ ;At the back door are the red hills and the cliffs and the sands&mdash\;the badlands. I go out my back door and walk for 15 minutes and I am some plac e that I&rsquo\;ve never been before\, where it seems that no one has ever been before me.&rdquo\; Oil paintings and pastels of the badlands outside h er backdoor are also included in the exhibition.

The expansive p anorama inspired her artwork as well as long walks through the uninhabited rocky terrain\, where she collected countless bones. As she brought them ba ck to her house\, she stacked them on her patio\, arranged them in her stud io\, and hung them on her walls. In addition to making them the subject of her paintings\, the artist employed bones to explore the spatial relationsh ips of near and far. After a decade of depicting bones as the focus of her work\, O&rsquo\;Keeffe began to employ bones as a lens to frame a view\, a conceptual move that prompted two of the paintings in the exhibition: Pelvi s IV (1944) and Pelvis Series\, Red with Yellow (1945).

Long aft er O&rsquo\;Keeffe had painted her last landscape\, the house and the vast landscape served as a sanctuary where she continued to walk late in her lif e.
