Pasatiempo - - IN THE WINGS -

Nüart Gallery, 670 Canyon Road, 505-988-3888 The graphic lines and forms of Erin Cone’s paint­ings in­habit a space be­tween ab­strac­tion and rep­re­sen­ta­tion. Her min­i­mal­ist com­po­si­tions com­bine el­e­ments of de­sign and fig­u­ra­tion, draw­ing at­ten­tion to the sub­tleties in the hu­man form. Her show Wish Ful­fill­ment opens Fri­day, Aug. 12, with a re­cep­tion at 5 p.m. Cone is present to dis­cuss her work at the event. “At its most ba­sic level, art it­self is a type of wish ful­fill­ment,” she states, “a re­arrange­ment and retelling of re­al­ity into some­thing more or­derly and ide­al­ized, a way to sat­isfy a de­sire through pure imag­i­na­tion.”
