Mark Horst: Chil­dren Play­ing Ring Around the Rosie 2 2015, oil on can­vas

Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

Canyon Road Con­tem­po­rary Art, 403 Canyon Road, 505-983-0433 Mark Horst’s fig­u­ra­tive paint­ings cap­ture ten­der mo­ments of do­mes­tic­ity, fam­ily life, and play that tran­scend time and place. His paint­ings, of­ten de­pict­ing day-to-day scenes in de­vel­op­ing na­tions, have a sense of the ephemer­al­ity of life. “I’ve tried to paint them with a kind of fierce­ness — by let­ting the im­age speak its beauty with­out veil­ing it in sen­ti­ment or pret­ti­ness,” he writes. The ex­hibit Mark Horst: A Fierce Beauty opens Fri­day, Sept. 18, with a 5 p.m. re­cep­tion.
