Harnessing the flow of hot wax is like capturing moments in time. Sometimes it feels like drowning in a wave and sometimes it feels like surfing.

What interests me in making art is the underlying elements as opposed to the overriding form. I like dots and grids, squares and swooshes. Sometimes just plain color.

Things look disparate only when viewed on the surface. Underneath, things share a common substance.

I like to work in wax because it immediately refers to its origins as the building material of bee houses. Its smell recalls its original purpose of providing shelter for life and its sweetness.

I wonder how a bee, designed to fly from flower to flower, manufactures a home that looks nothing like itself. Based on a casual observance of its awkwardly bulbous, possibly furry, body transported around by the frantic motions of the flimsiest wings, one would never expect that this creature’s house would bring to mind the propositions of Euclid.

Warren Keating is a painter who has based his popular overhead series on images from a digital video camera. The result brings together the perspective of the camera with the nuance control of light and color that can only happen with brush on canvas.

Born in New Orleans in 1965, his work now reflects the culmination of 25 years of painting both the figure and the landscape. He has had numerous solo shows of his paintings in the U.S. and Mexico, has sold hundreds of paintings through the internet to collectors around the world. He has been included in juried shows at the University of Southern Mississippi, Otis College, Los Angeles, Ventura College, Orange County Center For Contemporary Art, Long Beach Arts, TAG Santa Monica and Gallery 825 in Los Angeles.

His latest series, Overview, was selected as an LA Times Calendar pick, won Second Award at a juried exhibit at Long Beach Arts. An interview with Keating about this series was featured on both CNN and KTLA in Los Angeles. He work has been featured in the LA Times, Daily News and The Huffington Post. Keating recently won honorable mention in the California Open at TAG Gallery, had a solo show at Los Angeles Art Association’s Gallery 825 and was a Los Angeles regional finalist in the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series.

Somewhere on a bridge or a hotel balcony, you'll find me capturing video of unsuspecting figures walking below. Later, in a studio in Encino, you can find me pouring through frame after frame of the video footage to find the perfect moment of weight shift, swing of the arm or tilt of the head, which I feverishly paint, covering large canvases with thick paint depicting an overhead view of a walking figure in an urban setting. My work invites you to celebrate the moment using the perspective of a camera with the subtlety of light and color that can only be captured with oil on canvas. My signature “Pixel Impressionism” brush strokes create the motion and details of the walking figure and communicate my passion for the subject.

Capturing the gesture, the inner character, of my subjects is my primary focus. I want to convey the sense of fascination that I feel with human nature or natural beauty and the mystery of nature. Closely observing the light and colors of nature brings me a connection to the world around me that I hope to convey to viewers and collectors alike. I am passionate about character portraits, flowers and still life subjects. I have developed a unique approach to working in watercolor that I call "Wet and Workable" and offer workshops, classes and personal instruction in this and other watermedia processes.

My art career budded with a BFA degree from University of New Hampshire in figurative sculpture and
drawing followed by studies at École des Beaux Arts, France. After years in commercial design, I returned to my Fine Art sculpture roots in Colorado, participating in Loveland Sculpture Invitationals and Sedona Sculpture Walks. I adopted watercolor as my medium after moving to California where I taught at Brand Library Studios, the LA Academy of Figurative Art, and Learning & Product Expo (Pasadena). I now teach locally in Santa Fe, nationally and internationally.

I am serving on the Board of Directors of National Watercolor Society, and am a member of numerous watercolor and national art organizations; American, National, Southwestern and Valley Watercolor Societies, Portrait Society of America, and a signature member of Watercolor West, Women Artists of the West and New Mexico Watercolor Society.

Encaustic is an ancient technique involving melted beeswax, damar resin and pigment applied in layers like translucent veils. Each layer is then fused with the fire of a blowtorch.
I come to encaustic with a textile sensibility. Each step of the process is like weaving-the warps and wefts of life and art, of loss, desire, longing and death are fused together in the layers of wax with fire. I seek to create images that resonate with history as well as the modern; the rare and the common; order and disorder. My paintings are constructions of memory and desire and fragments of personal information. Through them I also can trace my travels-from the cisterns of Istanbul to the frescoes of Florence to the tragic beauty that is India. I weave the foundations and make marks and find that history, the poem, the light or the dark follows on its own.
I live and work in Santa Fe, NM.

Statement
As an interdisciplinary artist, I create artwork using printmaking, drawing, installation, and any combination thereof. Grounded in traditions of performance walking, I use trekking to investigate ritual and rhythm that test my physical and psychic boundaries. I utilize tools such as GPS tracking, audio recording, and photography to record my treks and pose questions of wandering, displacement, routes, and territory. The concept is inspired by my practices of long-distance running, printmaking, encountering nature, and experiencing raw solitude.


BIO
I am a multidisciplinary artist who explores intersections of running, nature, and solitude. Recent exhibitions include Listening to the Forest, Brooklyn, NY (2016), My Own Private Wilderness, Lake George, NY (2015) Nomadic Geographies (2014), Wave Hill, NY; In the Spirit (2014), Pioneer Bluff, KS; Tracing Nature, Muriel Guepin, NY (2012). Group exhibitions include Influencers (2014) Print Center of NJ; and Corridor Gallery (2012) Brooklyn, NY.

Residencies include C-Scape National Seashore Residency, MA, (2016); LMCC Govenor's Island Process Residency, NY, (2016) Outpost Studios, KS, (2014); International Nature and Culture, ARTTasmania, Australia (2008); C-Scape, Provincetown, MA (2007-08); Lower East Side Printshop, (2006-07), NYC; Santa Fe Art Institute, NM (2005); FransMasereelCentruum, Belgium; Miskolc Museum of Modern Art, Hungary. I am a Fulbright Fellow and an NEA-MidAtlantic Fellow. In 2011, I had the pleasure of running on Track and Field, the Allora and Calzadilla sculpture at the 54th Venice Biennale.

In 2010 I founded Stonetrigger Press in Abiquiu, NM. Located in the high desert, I built by hand a large studio out of stone, mud, wood and tin. Each year I spend several uninterrupted months deeply engaged in my practices--art, running, mountaineering.

I received an M.A. and M.F.A. from University of Iowa.

My first introduction to felt was as a child visiting my grandparents in Norway where nearly everyone had a pair of felt boots. When a Danish friend was visiting over 30 years ago, she taught me how to make a pair of felt slippers. From that point on, felt became a focus for me. I have had a 34 year involvement with felt making including writing instruction books on wet and needle felting and designing felt making craft kits for children and adults. In addition to working with a variety of different companies developing felt making techniques and machines to serve their purposes, I also make handmade felt garments and accessories in addition to hand felted wall hangings, sculptures and other felted objects. I have received numerous awards for my work including the Juror’s Choice Award for “Best Body of Work” at the Uncommon Threads Art-to-Wear Fashion Show in Illinois in 2012. In 2014 I was one of five invited artists at the “Fiber Innovations” exhibit at the Parker Arts and Events Center in Parker, Colorado where I had three handmade felt wall hangings. My hand made felt wall hanging in the “Fiber Rocks!” exhibit received First Place for “Theme”. My husband, Don and I live in Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico, and manage the FeltCrafts® business that provides felt makers with tools and machines for felt making.

Clodie François aka Mesdames Carton is a French native, born in Paris. She was early involved with theater, her first passion, on stage and backstage as a play writer, director, actress and singer. She also worked as a journalist for the newspaper Liberation. When she settled in New Mexico in 2000, this self taught artist began to create whimsical design furniture & one-of-a -kind sculptural lamps, merging hybrid material. The combination of corrugated cardboard, recycle wood or Masonite, willow branches and acid free handmade paper from all around the world is the particular signature of her work.
Her functional pieces convey an alchemy between the flexibility of one material and the rigidity of the other, between the light and colors of the Land of Enchantment and her own personality .
Whether they serve to shape the bold outlines of an insolent chest of drawer, a seductive night stand or a fairy like lamp, her creations vibrate with a subtle and playful elegance.
Clodie has exhibited at Taos Home Grown, Arte de Descartes, the Santa Fe Recycled Show, Casa Nova by Natalie in Santa Fe and Taos Fine Art & Framing in Taos. Her work has also been featured in the Tempo and the Santa Fean magazines.
Clodie’s creations are currently exhibited at Taos Art Collective in Taos & at Gaucho Blue in Penasco.
Her studio is open for the annual High Road Art Tour in September and all year round on appointment.

Marco A. Oviedo, Oviedo Carvings & Bronze - Chimayó, NM

Oviedo Carvings and Bronze Gallery features the work of Marco A. Oviedo who is a visionary woodcarver/sculptor who lives and works in Chimayó, New Mexico. The piñon-juniper dotted foothills of historic Chimayo provide the perfect backdrop for the traditional woodcarving and unique contemporary bronze sculpture that Marco produces. Since the late seventies he has interpreted New Mexico religious folk art styles and southwest designs in his creations.

The gallery setting is an all-adobe house designed and built in the New Mexico vernacular style, set on top of hills known as La Centinela. In the 18th and 19th century, these hills served as a sentinel for the outlying communities in to watch for raiders of their crops and livestock. The view of the surrounding landscape is breathtaking as you look at often snow-capped mountains on one horizon, natural sculptures of wind and water eroded hills to the north, and at the right time of the day a beautiful New Mexico sunset on the western horizon.

Part of the uniqueness for visitors to this site is its incorporation with the breeding farm of Heritage breeds of livestock that Marco and his wife Pat operate. Heritage breeds of animals include the Mammoth Donkey, the Spanish Colonial Horse and Churro Sheep. Also on the property is Marco’s personal workshop and foundry, where you can get a first-hand view of the process on how your sculpture or woodcarving is made.

Oviedo Carvings & Bronze Gallery is open as visitors come during the day between 10am and 6 pm. A big dinner bell that you ring when you arrive is near the entrance door to bring us to the door from anywhere we might be on the property. Come visit—you will have a memorable encounter.

I'm a surrealist landscape painter living and working in Santa Fe. I use my surroundings for my inspiration, capturing images by camera and drawing. I then go about translating the feelings I had while studying a landscape by re-creating those experiences onto canvas. I use bold colors, southwester colors and forms to turn hard objects into a moving, living landscapes. I take observers eyes skillfully through my paintings using composition, shapes and colors.

My background is in antique furniture restoration, my aesthetic has always been in the character of old finishes: appreciating their preservation. It is the beauty of the imperfect and the impressions of age that intrigue me. it is as if time has laid its hand upon a piece. I interpret this as a benediction from the past.
The world of our ancestors surround us in all its clarity and pristine beauty. but few see its presence... the Presence, the mythological, the alchemical, the mysterious, has never left us.

Abstract and non-objective painting is a journey of self discovery. Each painting is a new quest: The materials and I are blank canvases, without preconceptions. I remove myself from the process as I become the channel of shape, color, line, texture and form. I find my inspiration and my authenticity in return. The painting is finished when we are one.

“How long does it take to complete a painting?” is the question every artist is asked. “A lifetime,” is my answer. My paintings come from my entire life’s experience: The techniques, colors, applications, and the finished painting itself present my life.

My paintings are complex: Color, texture, method, material, application, style, and technique constantly change as the unpredictable, intuitive challenge unfolds on the canvas. It is exciting to recognize myself on the canvas, to know a painting is complete.

"I explore the mystery and complexity I experience in the world, making rich layered abstract paintings, with color and shape my primary focus, and creating small bronzes nudes that express the ever varied human form."

Painter and sculptor Marianne Hornbuckle's vital engagement with her two very different forms of artistic expression is the result of her desire to fully explore and express the extent of her creative abilities, to stay interested and fresh as an artist, and as an individual. She has created substantial bodies of work in both genres, finding the rhythms of their processes a foil for one another.

Hornbuckle exploits the properties of contemporary acrylic paints, using the different viscosities of gels and mediums to make complex surfaces that are alternately transparent, translucent and opaque, with mysterious color created by layering complimentary colors to create new colors. She rarely uses a brush, preferring to drag the paint with various other tools.

She creates classic contemporary sculptures from life,  capturing the unique essence and particulars of her subjects.

Born in Oklahoma, I am third generation in a family of artists, illustrators, and collectors. My tastes were influenced by my grandfather who painted like a southwestern Norman Rockwell and by my mom who filled the house where I grew up with Picasso prints, Wolf Kahn pastels and artwork by other contemporary masters.

I only got serious about painting in mid-life, getting into juried showed with the Northern Vermont Artist's Association, the Vermont Watercolor Society, and hanging pieces in the Vermont Fine Arts Gallery in Stowe. I mostly work plein air and recently moved to Santa Fe to take advantage of the many sunny days to set up an easel outdoors in northern New Mexico. Until their close, I was represented at the Hillside Gallery near my home. I am currently exploring other venues.

Lapidary and silver metal artist Priscilla Walsen creates silver and stone inlay jewelry, unique fine silver hollow forms, handmade “confetti” chains and other three-dimensional pieces. She uses both traditional and modern metal working and lapidary techniques to create handmade jewelry, often in one-of-a-kind designs.
Priscilla is best known for her bold colorful stone inlay designs. Each unique inlay piece is inspired by the colors and patterns in the stones. Her designs include the use of lapis, sugilite, chrysocolla, turquoise and many other semi-precious gems. She uses geometric shapes to create clean lines that complement the colors and patterns in the stone. A true lapidary artist, Priscilla starts with rough gemstone material, and then saws, grinds, sands and polishes each piece of stone.
In addition to working with sterling silver materials using traditional silversmithing methods; Priscilla also works with fine silver metal clay. Fine silver metal clay is a malleable form of fine silver made from recycled silver. Priscilla’s work with fused fine silver metal clay includes unique hollow forms and highly textured three dimensional designs.
Priscilla took her first silversmithing and metal shop classes while in high school and began studying lapidary arts in the 1990s. She founded SilverWear in 1997 after learning stone inlay techniques at Ghost Ranch in Abiqui, NM. Her stone inlay work was featured in Lapidary Journal (Jewelry Artist) magazine. Priscilla is a certified Precious Metal Clay (PMC®) Artisan by the Precious Metal Clay Guild. She creates her jewelry in her studio in Ojo Sarco on the famous High Road in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Her studio is open for the annual High Road Art Tour in September and by appointment.

Modern Icons that include Nature and Animals along with Divine Images. I think of myself as an artivist (art activist) on behalf of the animals that we share living space and habitats on this Earth. Many of my images represent the Divine Mother as Protectress of the Animals. I also show animals as angelic beings and Saints, as they too are exalted beings. Nature, Mysticism and Divine Imagery have long been part of my Modern Icons. They are a fusion of thoughts, styles and philosophies.

The ancient, primal image of Serpent has been expressed across cultures in a multitude of mediums. Diving into its energy of birth, enlightenment, death, fertility, oneness, protection, re-birth and transformation is a journey into a relationship with timeless, expansive source energy.

Serpent is a primary, recurring theme in my artistic expression. I am heavily influenced by my relationship with the land of Galisteo, as well as interactions with Serpent Mound in my home state of Ohio and the kundalini energy of the yoga I teach.

I am an American artist Linda Storm who paints with Cuban artist Pabo Perea. We had solitary artistic careers until we became neighbors in rural New Mexico. Our inevitable artistic collaboration began in 2010. We have created more than 200 paintings together and exhibited 100 at a solo exhibition in NYC. We are very interested in placing our art in public places.

In our Santa Fe, NM studio we paint parables. Through archetypal, surreal symbolism we depict the impact of humans on nature, her endurance, and the universal cycle of life. There you will find oil wells rooted to dinosaur bones, corn spirits growing, a horned goddess sowing seeds, and many works in progress, as we prepare for our upcoming solo exhibitions in NYC and in Havana, Cuba. A review of our 2014 NYC exhibit stated: Their art “most certainly has opened a new window on the horizon indeed for this century in art”.

Together we are four hands, two cultures, one artist. Our art is a visual language of our story, and our trust in each other to depict it with humility and confidence. All of our art has two signatures: Linda Storm and Pablo Perea. Our vision is for our art to be a global presence of cultural collaboration across the varied landscapes of humanity.

Plein Air Pastels

Wherever you go, your heart goes with you. Walk around and smell the air, listen to the trees or rocks. Ask yourself what pulls your heart to sit at this particular spot. Is it the light, the patterns or just that it makes you happy? Then pick up your pastels and begin to paint.

What happens is always a conversation between you and the landscape. In pastel, you have 10 brushes (10 fingers) so it's great to see what they can do. The end result is always a surprise. As an artist, I am the last to know what will happen. At its best, you become so much a part of the landscape that you disappear. I like the adventure.

When I see my finished pieces, I remember the heat on the rocks and the sound of the bees on the wild roses - it's all inside the painting.

Sandra Holzman, American Artist • Fabric Artist

Sandra Holzman studied fine arts at the Philadelphia College of Art and completed her BFA at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

Sandra developed the fine art of paper marbling into a technique for producing large scale fabrics with one-of-a-kind patterns of flowing colors. Her work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Designers West, House & Garden Magazine and Fiber Arts Magazine.

The work of this period has become a huge favorite with the interior and fashion design industries. Such notables as Yves St Laurent, Mary McFadden, Ralph Lauren and the Disney studios have commissioned Holzman to create unique fabric for their special projects.

In recent years, Holzman’s textile work has evolved into an exploration of color, texture and surface design on silk fabrics, using printmaking techniques, as well as, painting techniques. This is featured in the most prestigious museum shops and galleries as “Wearable Art”.

Additionally Sandra’s fine art work is evolving into a new phase of creative exploration. The cutting edge painting, drawing and monotype printing adds to Sandra Holzman’s exciting artistic and creative repertoire. The light in New Mexico continues to drive her visual explorations and drives her printmaking with solar etching techniques. She is painting, printing and exploring the landscape of light.

Holzman is currently working with her community in guiding the new arts group Route 66 Arts Alliance. Artists, writers and musicians are working together to present 2 shows a year in Edgewood. In 2016, they are sponsoring a Summer Arts Camp for children and adults.

Artist Statement

“My interest is in the making of something beautiful. I seek to express the feeling of the moment. The challenge is to bring oneself to the act of creation with total presence. I want to capture the light and energy I feel in the landscape. This gives the work life. I use mediums that allow me the freedom to move across the surface energetically. I do not think about the act of creation. I let it flow through me.”

My Journey as an artist is both traditional and unorthodox. A native of Santa Fe, New Mexico. With family roots in both the Native American and Hispanic traditions, my exposure to museums, galleries and a wide array of skilled artisans came early in life. In many ways I was born into the world of creativity and artistic expression. My father is an accomplished architect whose designs and sketches created an environmental matrix for my childhood. I have vivid memories of helping him build many of those projects. I was greatly influenced by my great-grandfather, a renowned master Zapotec weaver, who brought time tested weaving techniques to New Mexico in the early 1900's, helping to create what is now known as Rio Grande style weaving. This family tradition has passed on to me. Texture, color, design, proportion and beauty have all been a natural part of my life.

Marco A. Oviedo, Oviedo Carvings & Bronze - Chimayó, NM

Oviedo Carvings and Bronze Gallery features the work of Marco A. Oviedo who is a visionary woodcarver/sculptor who lives and works in Chimayó, New Mexico. The piñon-juniper dotted foothills of historic Chimayo provide the perfect backdrop for the traditional woodcarving and unique contemporary bronze sculpture that Marco produces. Since the late seventies he has interpreted New Mexico religious folk art styles and southwest designs in his creations.

The gallery setting is an all-adobe house designed and built in the New Mexico vernacular style, set on top of hills known as La Centinela. In the 18th and 19th century, these hills served as a sentinel for the outlying communities in to watch for raiders of their crops and livestock. The view of the surrounding landscape is breathtaking as you look at often snow-capped mountains on one horizon, natural sculptures of wind and water eroded hills to the north, and at the right time of the day a beautiful New Mexico sunset on the western horizon.

Part of the uniqueness for visitors to this site is its incorporation with the breeding farm of Heritage breeds of livestock that Marco and his wife Pat operate. Heritage breeds of animals include the Mammoth Donkey, the Spanish Colonial Horse and Churro Sheep. Also on the property is Marco’s personal workshop and foundry, where you can get a first-hand view of the process on how your sculpture or woodcarving is made.

Oviedo Carvings & Bronze Gallery is open as visitors come during the day between 10am and 6 pm. A big dinner bell that you ring when you arrive is near the entrance door to bring us to the door from anywhere we might be on the property. Come visit—you will have a memorable encounter.

I am from Espanola. I got into willow work by learning to make chairs. My teacher, Michael Emmons from Big Sur. CA taught in early 2000 at a school in Rockland, ME. A couple years later I apprenticed with Lorenzo Armijo from Pena Blanca, a small community near Cochiti, south of Santa Fe. He taught me the more Spanish style of basketry known as Madeira. Later on I met Bob Allalunis of Taos. He showed me another style of basketry called Moises. I have also studied the styles of various pueblo basket makers from San Juan, Santa Clara and Hopi who really emphasize more beauty and perfection. My work leans more on the practical rustic style. It all started after tiring of tossing broken plastic laundry baskets away.

Aleta Pippin

aletapippin.com
Pippin's paintings are about energy (vibration), color, and freedom. Her work has a spiritual bent and is a result of continual exploration. She believes that true art comes from within and color is central to her individual expression.

Pippin paints spontaneously acting as a conduit for the painting to flow through her; allowing it to express, paying attention to the direction it’s leading. When she's in this zone of freely expressing, she's deeply involved in the evolution of the painting, acting as a vessel through which the energy and intuition are flowing.

Pippin's statement is beauty, which can be translated differently for every individual. For her, it is the imparting of a feeling of appreciation, joy, and energy. She gives the viewer freedom to find their own truth and to see beauty in their own way when observing her paintings. Pippin likes to think of her art as liberating, offering a creative window into resonant beauty.

Pippin is loves to have viewers/collectors express how beautiful and powerful the paintings and how they are touched by the color, energy, and imagery.

I have a love for the layers of landscape. I am excited to explore new places but those that are familiar elicit stronger feelings. I like to paint where I’ve been.

Since 1998, I have spent time promoting the work of artists in galleries and producing a number of books. In 2010, I found time to work on my own, drawing and painting with water-based oils. I am happy to have my own studio in El Rito.

“I am always looking for new challenges. I am not looking for a particular style. I think that can be very limiting. There is always more to learn about structure, form, the use of color, lost and found edges, and light and shadow.
Each painting or sculpture brings new challenges and new ways of seeing, opening new horizons.
