John Tarah­te­eff: The Run­away 2017, acrylic on can­vas

Pasatiempo - - AMUSE-BOUCHE -

Nüart Gallery, 670 Canyon Road, 505-988-3888 John Tarah­te­eff’s strik­ing, slightly elon­gated fig­ures and nar­ra­tive com­po­si­tions have a sub­tle, un­set­tling sense of mys­tery and nos­tal­gia — like im­ages from dreams in which the re­cent past is con­flated with the present. Cre­ated us­ing for­mal com­po­si­tional el­e­ments, his paint­ings re­call Man­ner­ist and other Re­nais­sance art tra­di­tions, yet they are com­pletely mod­ern in terms of sub­ject matter. Ves­tiges, a new ex­hibit of his works, opens Fri­day, Nov. 10, with a re­cep­tion at 5 p.m.
