Art Collision & Repair Shop™
Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe
Muñoz Waxman Main Gallery
November 14, 2014 – February 1, 2015

Opening reception: Friday, November 14 6 – 8pm

Art Collission and Repair Shop

The Art Collision & Repair Shop™ is created by Santa Fe/Brooklyn artist Susan Begy and co-curated by Kathryn M Davis. This is a process-driven project about creativity, collaboration, and the prospects of failure. For ArtCRS™, selected artists are invited to anonymously donate a piece of their own unfinished work that is stuck or “stalled.” Another group of invited artists, the “Art Mechanics”, work in teams to complete the artwork without knowing its source or back story. The exhibition at CCA features nine refurbished works, alongside documentation of the original artworks. There are no rules governing the process–paintings are transformed into sculptures, sculptures have become video installations, poetry is woven into objects. Panel discussions and other programming explore the role of collaboration in art-making.

The Art Mechanics are:

Ethan Bach, Susan Begy, Kristin Bortles, Alexis Bove, Paula Castillo, Cary Cluett, Sydney Cooper, Kathryn M Davis, Sandra Halpin, Jamie Hamilton, Hannah Hughes, Cheri Ibes, Christopher Jamie Johnson, Caity Kennedy, Don Kennell, Matt King, Shirley Klinghoffer, Katherine Lee, Michael Lujan, Nina Mastrangelo, Cyrus McCray, Dylan McLaughlin, Stacey Neff, Willy Bo Richardson, Michael Schippling, Erika Wanenmacher, and Jerry Wellman.

Originating artists include:

Rita Bard, Matthew Chase-Daniel, Luke Dorman, Charles Greeley, Bob Haozous, Christy Hengst, Joel Hobbie, Jennifer Joseph, Bebe Krimmer, Eve Andrée Laramée, Nora Naranjo Morse, Bunny Tobias, and Judy Tuwaletstiwa.

Color Fall
William Siegal Gallery

August 29 – September 23, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, August 29 5 – 7pm

David Ivan Clark, Cornelia Thomsen & Willy Richardson

Color Fall unites three artists whose work addresses verticality in painting.

David Ivan Clark’s subtle gradations take cues from color-field and monochromatic painting traditions but simultaneously evoke a sense of reductive landscape. Cloudy layers of atmospheric color hover above low horizons blurred as if by fading twilight or rising heat waves.

Willy Richardson’s gestural abstractions take gravity as a constant. Paint is pulled downward in large, loose brush strokes later intertwined with smooth gradient passages and the occasional drip. The result is an  energetic dialogue between high and low key color manifest in an array of contrasting brush techniques.

Cornelia Thomsen’s vertical stripe paintings seem impossibly precise. One might mistake them for digital renderings were it not for the edges of the canvas where her painterly process reveals itself. Her perfect lines and seem less gradations are a testament to her masterfully steady hand, while contrasting colors pulled from representational paintings of her past push and pull the eye like a waving curtain – creating a dynamic visual vibration.

William Siegal Gallery in Santa Fe is a high-concept space that exhibits a distinguished collection of ancient art and artifacts alongside contemporary works of art.

That’s Where You Need to Be
Richard Levy Gallery
August 2 – September 19, 2014
Opening reception: Friday August 1 2014, 6 – 8pm

A group exhibition of paintings by William Betts, Xuan Chen, Maria Park and Willy Bo Richardson. These artists expand the conventions of painting by executing their own unique styles and methods of application.

That's Where You Need to Be

That’s Where You Need to Be 16, oil on canvas, 53 x 57 inches

Willy Bo Richardson considers the laws of nature as a primary source for his paintings. Vertical lines of expressive layers of color reach for the ground giving evidence to earth’s gravitational pull. Richardson’s gestural large scale paintings embody atmosphere, space, and action. He works within limitations of cause and effect exploring abstract levels of thinking.


William Betts explores the possibilities of a digital age by using innovative techniques that include the use of proprietary software and a self-designed complex robotic system. This technology applies drops of paint to the canvas one color at a time – one drop at a time. william betts
Xuan Chen creates simple forms on her computer, which she deconstructs to exaggerate anomalies that occur when generating digital images. These digital compositions are hand painted onto cut-out aluminum panels that float off the wall. Complex visual spaces are formed by color, light, dimension and reflection. xuan chen
Maria Park depicts suburban landscapes to address ways nature can be packaged as a consumable image. Her sculptural plexiglas cubes and wall paintings are executed with a rigorous impasto technique. The scenic environments are shaped by generous layers of paint contained in stencil-like forms. maria park
