  • New Mexico Museum of Art - Being Alone in the Desert - 8/14/09
    New Mexico last year Roberts s picture Being Alone in the Desert has been on my mind A hulking blue figure dominates the picture surrounded by the big empty sky and a patch of land sparsely studded with plants emphasizing aloneness Is the figure afraid crossing its arms protectively against the cold and the unknown or is it taking a defensive posture Is the open mouthed grimace chattering with chill or terror or is it baring its teeth aggressively The aura around the figure is both red and black which could suggest anger dark thoughts a visitation of spirits or even simply the glow and shadow created by the sun The most inexplicable part of the picture is the patch of black and white at the figure s throat the only part of the underlying photograph that isn t covered with paint It shows a jumble of unidentifiable forms that might be the figure s innards or is perhaps symbolic of inner turmoil Even though we can see right through this person like an X Ray he or she remains unknown to us holding on to its mysteries just like the desert I like that ambiguity Being Alone in the

  • New Mexico Museum of Art - Cypher Space - 5/26/09
    writing the introductory blog I am new to the art museum world and what surprised me here were the stories The stories behind works of art the artist s life or events in the world have made me love or sometimes loathe a piece but with some understanding of it rather than merely a gut reaction to it One piece in the current Intertwined exhibition brings an emotional response whenever I think about it now that I know the story The Eye of the Beholder presents a delicate lacy body covering below a glaring leathery face mask of stitched grapefruit peels It made me uneasy But knowing that the piece was created to honor the artist s sister a beautiful young woman who had become disfigured and was literally stitched back together I now see the work as powerful and proud So the blog will bring stories of some of the art in the museum but also of the museum itself and its staff I hope that these stories will let visitors find layers of meaning in the works of art and meaning in a public museum of art I think the staff s real commitment to bringing forth meaning
