Mi­caela Gardner: Kachina Ten­e­ment 2016, oil and pas­tel on panel

Pasatiempo - - IN THE WINGS -

Cen­ter for Con­tem­po­rary Arts, 1050 Old Pecos Trail, 505-982-1338 Santa Fe-based artist Mi­caela Gardner’s ex­hibit To­mor­row’s Yes­ter­day Home opens Fri­day, Feb. 17, with a 5 p.m. re­cep­tion. Ten of Gardner’s re­cent paint­ings made on Alder pan­els are on dis­play. Her com­po­si­tions are ab­stract and ges­tu­ral, but taken to­gether, they make up a loose nar­ra­tive in which she en­vi­sions a re-habi­ta­tion of an­cient dwelling sites and ru­ins. “With th­ese paint­ings, I imag­ine a fan­tas­tic re-oc­cu­pa­tion of places like Ban­de­lier, dur­ing and af­ter an en­vi­ron­men­tal apoc­a­lypse,” she says in a state­ment.
