2016, oil on can­vas

Pasatiempo - - RESTAURANT REVIEW -

Meyer Gallery, 225 Canyon Road, 505-983-1434 Jhenna Quinn-Lewis paints still lifes and bird im­agery with an el­e­gant sim­plic­ity in­spired by Ja­panese art and phi­los­o­phy. “My in­spi­ra­tion comes from Ja­panese mas­ters such as Uta­gawa Hiroshige, Uta­maro, and Hasegawa Tōhaku,” she writes. “In col­lege, I took cour­ses on the Ja­panese tea cer­e­mony and the art of flower ar­range­ment. It is there I dis­cov­ered the tenets of wabi-sabi, the ad­her­ence to beauty in the im­per­fect, the im­per­ma­nent, and in aus­ter­ity.” A se­lec­tion of her representational paint­ings re­mains on view at Meyer.
