Allison Stewart: Haiku Bayou, #25
2015, mixed media on panel
Mill Contemporary, 702 1/2 Canyon Road, 505-983-6668 The exhibition Elements: An Exploration of Fragile Environments continues through Aug. 28. Elements is a three-person show that includes works by Allison Stewart, Patrick Adams, and Angela To. Stewart, a trained biologist, explores the fragility of environments threatened by humankind in her paintings. Adams is a landscape painter who works abstractly, using thick applications of paint and reducing natural shapes and forms to their essence. Vibrant colors dominate To’s work, simple landscapes with close-up details rendered with a vibrant but soothing sense of color and an emphasis on the visible patterns of nature.
