Brandon Maldonado, "Identidades"
July 5 - August 31, 2019
Opening reception: Saturday, July 27, 6:00

Exhibition opens Friday July 5th-August, artist unveiling 6pm
Spanish Market Reception Saturday July 27th 6pm

One of New Mexico's most celebrated New Brow Contemporary artists, it's not hard to understand why Brandon Maldonado's paintings are in high demand. Maldonado paints images of fictional saints, portraits of family members, and contemporary scenes such as quinceaneras, figures crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, and in 2018 POP Gallery showcased his love letter to Mexico, a Neo-Picasso series, which garnered international recognition as well featured articles in the Pasatiempo and THE Magazine.

His style borrows freely from Catholic retablos and ex-votos, early Flemish painting, Cubism, and popular culture, all of which Maldonado combines to create colorful and intricate oil-on-panel paintings. Largely self-taught as a painter, Maldonado's early Día de los Muertos images, are still classic while he continues to evolve artistically and make relevant work reflecting on historical importance as well as commenting on current issues.

We look forward to unveiling his new body of work during July of this year, details forth coming...

POP COLORES!
March 1 - March 31, 2019

Featuring colorful palettes from encaustic artist Karine Swenson and whimsical painter Judy Shreve.

"The rhythm of the lines and marks, for me, are repetitious, like the rhythms in music, or even like the tasks we do every day. A routine that brings comfort but can also be beautiful. I am working with layers of translucent color - experimenting with what happens when one color is painted over another."- KS

Karma's Kreatures
December 7 - January 30, 2019

The work of Renee Lawter has taken a direction in conservation and preservation. Using her characters to deliver this potent message which she is known for, unique characters with crooked smiles that welcome the viewer into a world both foreign & familiar. Sepia tones combined with beautifully chosen vintage frames force the viewer to take a more serious look at these cuddly monsters as she masterfully balances her wit and message within the confines of each piece. The subject matter lays bare the wastefulness of our consumer culture, yet delivers it's meaning in small bite size portions. Playful characters charm the viewer into thought with each global issue that is addressed. Renee uses her uncanny ability to present her point of view through images with which you can't help but to sympathize.

Renee has been creating incredible creatures for over 20 years. She currently lives with her Boston Terrier Zero in Los Angeles. She shows frequently throughout southern California and spreading into Berlin, Australia & Amsterdam. Her artwork is sought after by famous Hollywood types such as Danny Elfman & Bobby Lee of MAD TV.

Brandon Maldonado, Neo-Picassoism
July 1 - August 1, 2018
Opening reception: Saturday, July 28, 6:00

"I remember once hearing a Pablo Picasso quote that went something like, "if you put an eye in the socket people take it for granted, but if you put an eye in the forehead, people will see it anew." As with many things attributed to Pablo Picasso I'm not sure if this is actually something he said or part of the mythifying of his life story in which he is often portrayed as a god incarnate. Regardless, this attributed quote has always rang true with me. In the current digital age of existence we are bombarded with so much imagery it is rare that something stops us in our tracks, calling on us to take a deeper look. However, 40 years after his death Pablo Picasso's works still seem as relevant as ever. He is perhaps the most famous artist of all time. From Miles Davis' 1958 "Blues for Pablo" to Jay-Z' 2013 "Picasso Baby" we live in a world inspired by the man.

My cubist inspired painting journey first started in 2012 with the idea of putting the cubist style in a different context. One of my earliest ideas was what If Picasso painted a nun in the baroque fashion of the 18th century? And the idea intrigued me so much I had to paint it. For as much of a fan I am of Pablo there are a lot of pieces that seem a bit too sloppy for my taste. This is understood when we are aware of the fact that more Picasso paintings exist than days he was alive, his prolific output can perhaps be a result of his never ending exploration of new ideas. But for me, I want my works a little more fine tuned, less spontaneous and more planned and developed to attempt to not just replicate the style but to try and push it forward. I called this series of works my "Picasso Thief" series in homage to the man and with the acknowledgment that every one who saw the works would probably feel the need to tell me, "its like Picasso!" but after all it was Picasso himself who said, "good artists copy great artists steal." So I took that as a being a personal blessing from the master himself.

The exhibition you see here has the common thread of subject matter inspired by the beautiful culture and people of Mexico. While stylistically the cubist paintings vary from a few psychedelic looking pieces to more traditional 18th century looking color palettes, and even a Colonial New Mexican style retablo or should I say rePablo."-BM 2018

Daniel Martin Diaz, "Eternal Universe"
July 18 - August 15, 2017
Opening reception: Saturday, July 29, 6:00

Explore new works by Daniel Martin Diaz during July 2017. Meet the artist during Contemporary Spanish Market, Saturday night 6 pm.

I believe art is a reflection of ourselves, the story of humanity, and a quest to understand the physical and metaphysical world. As we try to understand our place in the universe, art can be an important part of the dialogue we can create and share with each other. In my work, I seek to reveal the mysterious with arcane imagery and techniques that make sense to me on a deep level that words cannot quantify. In "Eternal Universe," there is an underlying dichotomy of the power of technology and our quantum connection to it and our Universe. In this work, I present the questions of how might our use or mis-use of technology permanently alter the future of humanity and what is our personal responsibility for our effect on the world and each other? It is my attempt to capture the complexity and beauty of the underlying mechanisms that bind us in an emotion. - Daniel Martin Diaz
