MELTING by Marietta Patricia Leis
MacMillan Family Lobby & Polly Addison Gallery
Marietta Patricia Leis is a quietly eloquent activist. In her travels she has ventured to Finland’s Arctic Circle, Iceland, and Antarctica. In her Albuquerque studio Leis created the reductive multimedia art for MELTING, which is about the impressions she experienced in these places of beauty, mystery, drama, and timelessness. Leis wants people to be drawn to her art in MELTING and become more acutely aware of the fragile future of our planet and seek ways to preserve it for generations.
One End of the Forest by David Bahr
A burning forest is contradictions: horrifying but beautiful, preventable but an ecological necessity. After evacuating his Front Range home and fighting wildfires in New Mexico, David Bahr understands both the strange allure and the gut-wrenching fear. This portfolio focuses on the disconcerting art found in the smoke and flames of Front Range fires, both controlled burns in the winter and wild in the summer.
Wood & Stone, Substance & Spirit by Roger Asay and Rebecca Davis
The sculptural collaborations of Rebecca Davis and Roger Asay generate a deep reverence for the earth by presenting raw natural materials in strange and unexpected arrangements, inducing in viewers the experience of seeing these familiar objects directly, with an intense clarity, as if for the first time. Contrasting sculptures command the gallery space, interacting with each other to create a carefully orchestrated composition of movement, pattern, and texture.
