Fatima Ronquillo: The Sentinels
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.
