Jim Vogel: Playing With Fire
2015 , oil on canvas panel
Blue Rain Gallery, 130-C Lincoln Ave., 505-954-9902 Jim Vogel’s paintings reflect the rural life, myths, folklore, lands, and cultures of New Mexico in compositions that are part fantasy, part Social Realist imagery. In his latest exhibition, Dr. El Ocio’s Circo Curioso, he reflects on the absurdity of the human condition with a hint of sinister glee. The show opens on Friday, Sept. 25, with a 5 p.m. reception.
