DESCRIPTION

Place and process are integral to the works of Arroyo Seco artist, Johnnie Winona Ross, who is known for his reductive and luminous paintings that are comprised of layers upon layers of paint brushed, dripped, scraped and burnished to an extraordinary finish. The horizon, the quality of light, the seepage of water or traces of ancient cultures on a canyon wall—these elements of the landscape all inform Ross’s grid and drip paintings. This small but compelling exhibition, the artist’s first solo museum show since moving to New Mexico in 1999, will include paintings spanning the past 14 years, among them some that have never before been exhibited.
