New Mexico artist Jim Vogel presents new paintings narrating an encounter between an isolated northern New Mexican village and an exotic, otherworldly traveling circus in the 1920’s with Dr. El Ocio’s Exhibitus Terminio only at Blue Rain Gallery.
Jim Vogel deftly weaves color and emotion, detail and shape into paintings that reflect life and land in New Mexico. Vogel hails from a family of storytellers, so each of his works tells its own tale of the land, the culture, and the common man’s struggle.
Vogel’s storytelling continues including paintings which depict New Mexican folklore and myths that have crossed cultures and been told for generations. “I’m trying to put images to these stories I’ve heard over and over from my mother and father,” says the artist.
Vogel is also well known for his paintings featuring New Mexican landscapes and rural life, many of which feature beautiful hand-made tin frames.
