Matthew Siev­ers: Be­gin­ning of Bread 2018, oil on can­vas

Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

Blue Rain Gallery, 544 S. Guadalupe St., 505-954-9902 Matthew Siev­ers places em­pha­sis on the shift­ing qual­ity of light in his pas­toral land­scapes, a pre­oc­cu­pa­tion that gives his com­po­si­tions an ephemeral pres­ence. Us­ing brush and pal­ette knife si­mul­ta­ne­ously, he cre­ates a var­ied sur­face qual­ity to cap­ture the light, and lends the works a sense of soft fo­cus con­trast­ing with bold, ex­pres­sive mark-mak­ing. An ex­hi­bi­tion of Siev­ers’ new paint­ings opens with a 5 p.m. re­cep­tion on Fri­day, Oct. 26.
