In this exhibition, a group of 12 Albuquerque artists from the s(and) Collective share creative expressions of their notions of home, within the context of their work together as artists.

s(and) artists in this show are: Lea Anderson, Angela Berkson, Jill Christian, Stephanie Lerma, Jessamyn Lovell, Kelly Eckel, Dana Lynn Kleinman, Valerie Roybal, Cedra Wood, Rachel Popowcer, Heidi Pollard, Shawn Turung.

Solo Exhibition: Cavern of Curiosities
Jul
16
to Aug 14

Solo Exhibition: Cavern of Curiosities

Curated by Aimee Gwynne Franklyn

Opening Reception:
SATURDAY July 16th, 5:00 - 8pm
art space hours: Friday, Saturday, Sunday 1-5pm and by appointment

Gallery: 505.692.9249 or 505.995.9822

Can the volatile beauty of our planet contain us, or will we be extinguished by its inherent eccentricities? In Cavern of Curiosities, Albuquerque artist Lea Anderson creates living, philosophical worlds that echo the formal variations seen in natural systems. FUTUREFEELD, Anderson’s spectacular installation and the centerpiece of Cavern of Curiosities, is a whirling parallel universe, composed of hundreds of electrifying digital prints on formed acetate, with multiple inclusions of magnificently colored synthetic fibers. Anderson’s world is stirring and hypnotic, a threatening desert landscape, softened by opalescent entities, as if floating in a waking dream.

This ambivalent view of what lies ahead for us is manifested with piercing beauty. The collision of form and intent is inspiring, stunning and worrisome all at once. Cavern of Curiosities is an unabashedly unfiltered portrayal of our world and our future, in to which we are all accelerating, poorly equipped, but armed with an innate, organic and beautiful optimism.

Also included in Cavern of Curiosities, are newly commissioned three-dimensional works that expand on the concepts examined in FUTUREFEELD.
