Mountains & Sky, TAI Modern
Concludes Friday, December 31st
It is impossible to live in Santa Fe without falling a little bit in love with the mountains and sky. This winter, TAI Modern, which is based in this special place, pays homage to these pillars of the high desert landscape with an exhibition of works from Japan and America that evoke or are inspired by the natural world.
Mountains & Sky brings together a selection of vessel makers, painters, and sculptors. The references to nature can be straightforward, as in Black Mesa, Linda Whitaker’s powerful oil-pastel of a local landscape, or more difficult to pinpoint, as in Hatakeyama Seido’s Mountain Range, a jar-shaped bamboo basket with a decorative knotted motif reminiscent of the titular forms. Be sure to catch this engaging exhibition, in person or online.
