Beginning on August 28, 2009 Zane Bennett Contemporary Art, at 435 South Guadalupe Street in Santa Fe, New Mexico will present two separate shows opening on the same night. We will be showing Spatial Illusions, an exhibition of new paintings by New Mexico artist Catherine Green. We will also present Fractured Form, the first exhibition of paintings in Santa Fe by San Francisco artist Henry Jackson. There will be a reception on Friday, August 28, 2009, from 5-7 pm, and the shows continue through September 26, 2009.
Catherine Green, a resident of Tesuque, creates compositions of basic geometric forms organized in free unconstructed space, which carry a dynamic equilibrium through the arrangement of forms and interaction of colors. Her new work consists of horizontal and vertical expressions, where color alone becomes form and subject and evokes a determinate sensation. Green draws inspiration from a lengthy study of traditional Japanese pottery, through which she has gained a refined sense of simplicity and harmony.
