POP Gallery presents #santafe#enchanted, group show featuring locally celebrated NEW MEXICO artists garnering international attention at a fast pace.
Spotlight: NIGEL CONWAY (Santa Fe, NM): Famous for his abstract figurative paintings with their captivating big eyes and lips, Nigel has made his career into an artistic adventure, continually exploring new subjects and creating paintings that excite him and his collectors. His style combines his playfulness and deep connection with the subjects he paints, working on a painting sometimes for months just to add a minute detail. Nigel’s paintings have an almost magnetic effect on their viewers, attracting collectors both nationally and internationally. Nigel creates modern frescos as inspired portraits and cityscapes with a fresh & contemporary palette.
Spotlight: MAT CRIMMINS (Cerrillos, NM) With roots on both the East and West coasts, Mat Crimmins has a degree in philosophy from Syracuse University, and works closely with the Shidohni foundry in Tesuque. His bronze series of skeletal pieces have become a major part of his current focus capturing ideas of life and death but more importantly character, humor and the soul. He signs all of his work with “CRIM” a nickname given to him by childhood friends who happen to remain his close friends to this day. “I have to keep creating, I have to keep learning, I don’t know what it all means right now but I feel if I keep doing, if I keep reaching, it will all make sense at some pointâ€¦sort of.”
