Jeff Cochran: Crest of Light

2015, oil on can­vas

Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

Man­i­tou Gal­leries, 225 Canyon Road, 505-986-0440 Taos-based painter Jeff Cochran’s earthy ren­di­tions of land­scapes and New Mex­ico mis­sions, ren­dered us­ing an im­pasto tech­nique, ex­plore pas­toral ru­ral set­tings in vary­ing light and sea­sons. Cochran is known for his early, large por­traits of chim­panzees, one of which he gifted to pri­ma­tol­o­gist Jane Goodall. An or­ganic farmer as well as an artist, he likens farm­ing to cre­at­ing art. “The dif­fer­ent col­ors of plants and soil and mulch con­trast­ing with fur­rows and beds are like a three-di­men­sional paint­ing,” he states. The ex­hibit High Desert Har­vest: Jeff Cochran opens with a 5 p.m. re­cep­tion on Fri­day, Oct. 23, and in­cludes live mu­sic by Brazil­ian gui­tarist Zooga Málaga.
