Pasatiempo - - IN THE WINGS -

Form & Con­cept, 435 S. Guadalupe St., 505-982-8111 Santa Fe-based artist Thais Mather’s ex­hi­bi­tion Reck­less Aban­don con­tin­ues through Feb. 10, 2018. The show con­sists of sev­eral large-scale in­stal­la­tions that in­cor­po­rate ce­ram­ics, draw­ings, video, and other medi­ums. The ex­hibit evolved from a se­ries of wood­block prints de­pict­ing crea­tures that of­ten in­spire fear and loathing, such as spi­ders and snakes. Mather, who stud­ied fem­i­nist the­ory, is in­spired by the ways in which women have been treated in male-dom­i­nated so­ci­eties. “Reck­less Aban­don is a call to ac­tion, not just for us to treat one an­other and our planet with care, but also for us to aban­don what we think we know, in or­der to cre­ate a life of magic in the next phase of our evo­lu­tion,” Mather writes in a state­ment.
