EARTH TONES ON A DIFFERENT PLANET - New works by KEVIN MUNOZ

A new capsule collection of 5 works.

In Kevin’s latest work he continues to explore the complexities and delicately balanced beauty that is life. Each landscape represents memories and also event not yet lived. The tension of texture come together to tell a story over sharply cut masks of color all dancing together to make a picturesque view.

Kevin Muñoz is a self taught artist who works in a folk realm of warm colors and loose textures to explore concepts of identity, longing and growth. His design background informs his practice as does his upbringing in Southern California to Guatemalan parents. He currently lives in Austin, Texas.
This show will be on view from October 7th until October 28th 2022.
OPENING SEPTEMBER 23RD
NOXIOUS FIBERS - New works by AUDREY MONTOYA

A new capsule collection of new rugs and felted works

Fibers of noxious functions. This is a wonderfully silly collection of fiber art pieces from Audrey Montoya as she continues to explore various themes of combining her art and home life into one beautiful mess.

Albuquerque based artist, Audrey Montoya has been making monstrosities for the past several years. These monsters are created in reaction to the current state of everything; that bad hair cut she had in the 8th grade; and the way lucky charms are slimy and crunchy at the same time. These monsters take the form of anthropomorphic clouds, drooling wolf rugs, or digitally informed analog paintings. Realistic detail and cartoon abstraction make unsettling yet relatable monsters. Montoya is an emerging artist and is excited to receive her BFA in studio art from the University of New Mexico this spring.
This show will be on view from September 23rd until October 14th 2022.

THROWN BONES - New works by JP MORRISON LANS

A new capsule collection of 8 works.

Our brains are designed to recognize patterns and use these to make predictions, under this pretext our species is experiencing unprecedented fatigue after the pandemonium of the recent past. Thrown Bones, explores these precarious predictive desires through the symbolism of divination.

JP Morrison Lans, uses encaustic, color pencil and gouache to create realistic figurative depictions alongside abstract representations of womanhood, motherhood, sex, love, loss, self-preservation and knowing. Through orientation dissonance, inverted bodies reference circumspection, surrender, gestation, and metamorphosis. Morrison Lans renders hands frequently, as representatives of intention and action, along with symbolism of the mouth and teeth, the gateway between inner self and outer world, boundary and intimate entry point. Through her work, you are invited to experience this same push and pull between entering and observing from a distance.

Morrison Lans holds BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute. Her work has been shown internationally, across the US and is in the permanent collection of the Bundaberg Regional Gallery, Queensland, Australia. She has been an artist in residence with the School of Visual Arts, NY., Truro Art Center, MA., and Rockland Woods, WA. She and her five year old son can typically be found experimenting with encaustic and play-doh, respectively, from their home studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
This show will be on view from September 9th until October 7th 2022.
OPENING AUGUST 19TH
LOSING BATTLES - New works by BEEDALLO

A new capsule collection of 5 works.

The Losing Battles series is an attempt to visualize the stress and burnout faced in everyday life surrounded by systems struggling to maintain their legitimacy. Fights we thought were over and won rear their heads into our lives endlessly on top of the stresses of the pursuit of necessities to live with dignity. Inner battles, rage, panic, and exhaustion are faced by all of us. The series attempts to visualize this pain openly and allow one to hurt. It’s better to hurt than to become numb.

Beedallo grew up on a prison farm in Los Chavez, New Mexico. Her roots are deep in the area and much of her work attempts to capture its stories and folk art and combine it with her own style. Beedallo has a BFA in illustration from the Southwest  University of Visual arts and has been based out of Albuquerque since 2016. 
This show will be on view from August 19th until September 16th 2022.
OPENING AUGUST 5TH
ALL SMILES - New works by RUSS WHITE

A new capsule collection of 6 beautiful works.

ALL SMILES is a collection of new colored pencil drawings on panel, capturing abstracted portraits and studies of the skulls underneath them. At a time when we are facing a rising tide of white Christian fascism, the skull felt like an appropriate subject for portraiture – a reminder of our limited time and an embrace of rich, vibrant color in spite of that. There is a magic and a mystery to this ludicrous life, if only we’d notice it.
Russ White is an artist and writer living in Minneapolis. Using primarily colored pencils and mixed media collage, White creates drawings that teeter between photorealistic rendering and expressive abstraction, attempting to unpack some of the privileges and prejudices around bodies, identities, and ideologies.

This show will be on view from August 5th until September 2nd 2022.
