John Gib­son: Canyon 2018, wa­ter­color on pa­per

Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

Ger­ald Pe­ters Gallery, 1005 Paseo de Peralta, 505-954-5700 Known for his evoca­tive, il­lu­sion­is­tic still lifes of mar­ble-like spheres, painter John Gib­son in­vests each com­po­si­tion with a unique per­son­al­ity. His long fas­ci­na­tion with spher­i­cal forms amounts to a study of one of the most ba­sic and uni­ver­sal of shapes. “I paint balls be­cause they are the most sim­ple and fun­da­men­tally dif­fer­ent thing from the flat sur­face of a paint­ing I can think of,” he said in a re­cent state­ment. An ex­hi­bi­tion of his new works in­cludes oil paint­ings as well as ex­am­ples of his re­cent for­ays into wa­ter­color paint­ing. The show opens Fri­day, Oct. 5, and is on view through Dec. 8. There is no re­cep­tion.
