Jonathan Morse, Spaces 5 (2019), pigment print
Santa Fe Community College, 6401 Richards Ave., 505-428-1000, sfcc.edu Santa Fe-based artist Jonathan Morse comes from a photography and printmaking background, which still informs the work he makes today. Using digital photography and digital drawing applications, he creates prints that are derived from representational imagery but are transformed into abstractions of striking color and dynamic energy. “I’ve been called a digital action painter, as I whirl from step to step in an image, marrying the organic and the digital, much as we all must in today’s world,” he said in a statement. Collage to Now ,aseriesof28 of Morse’s recent prints, is on view through Sept. 30 in the Fine Arts Building of SFCC (between the Visual Arts Gallery and the classrooms). In addition, the exhibition Odd Nature, a group show featuring work by Nuala Clarke, Melinda Ostraff, Joe Ostraff, and others, opens in the Visual Arts Gallery with a 5 p.m. reception on Friday, Sept. 13, and is on view through Oct. 10.
