Fa­tima Ron­quillo: The Sen­tinels

Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

2016, oil on panel Meyer Gallery, 225 Canyon Road, #14, 505-983-1434 The paint­ings of self-taught artist Fa­tima Ron­quillo are whim­si­cal, mys­te­ri­ous, and enig­matic. Work­ing on a small scale, Ron­quillo cre­ates nar­ra­tive por­traits of serene child­like fig­ures in for­mal colo­nial dress and set in idyl­lic pas­toral land­scapes. Her works are in­spired by classical paint­ing and pos­sess a time­less qual­ity. Born in the Philip­pines and hav­ing moved to the U.S. in 1987, Ron­quillo now makes Santa Fe her home. An ex­hi­bi­tion of her paint­ings is on view through Sept. 29.
