Milt Kobayashi: Float­ing Clouds 2017, oil on can­vas

Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

Meyer Gallery, 225 Canyon Road, 505-983-1434 Milt Kobayashi em­ploys tech­niques from West­ern paint­ing tra­di­tions as well as those from 16th- and 17th­cen­tury Ja­panese print­mak­ers in his fig­u­ra­tive por­traits. Of­ten de­picted in cafés and other pub­lic places, his fe­male fig­ures seem poised and aloof, cap­tured in can­did ev­ery­day mo­ments, but seem­ingly aware of be­ing ob­served. In terms of sub­ject and style, Kobayashi’s com­po­si­tions re­call the works of Diego Velázquez, James McNeill Whistler, and John Singer Sar­gent. The re­cep­tion is at 5 p.m. on Fri­day, July 21.
