2015, oil on can­vas

Pasatiempo - - UPCOMING EVENTS -

Meyer East Gallery, 225 Canyon Road, 505-983-1657 Mex­i­can artist Ri­cardo Fer­nan­dez’s paint­ings are rem­i­nis­cent of the com­po­si­tions of Span­ish Baroque pain­ters. His ar­che­typal fig­u­ra­tive im­agery and stark land­scapes are ren­dered in a re­al­ist style with a touch of sur­re­al­ity. “I try to come close to re­al­ism in or­der to achieve a spe­cific vis­ual pur­pose,” he writes. “That pur­pose is to pro­vide some­thing that con­nects to both the viewer and my­self in a very par­tic­u­lar way, psy­cho­log­i­cally speak­ing.” A show of his works opens Fri­day, Oct. 9, with a re­cep­tion at 5 p.m.
