Cornelia Jensen

Cornelia Jensen

“Microstructures” is a panoramic utopian urban environment by artist, Cornelia Jensen. It occurs as a site-specific installation using found Styrofoam packing material, faux grass and light to create a small scale cityscape, including infrastructure and green space. A background in filmmaking and found-object assemblage evolved into the creation of light-imbued sculpture. Instead of demanding external light sources to be visible, it requires darkness to fully appreciate its glowing presence. The use of light brings out a delicate ethereal beauty in material that would otherwise be thrown away after its temporary purpose of cradling delicate consumer products in transit. Instead of becoming an albatross of bulky, non-biodegradable waste, the material is transformed into something that transports us to an imaginary world of possibilities.

After years of being a figurative and figure-ground painter, Jensen transitioned into plein-air landscape painting, like her father had done when she was young. While living in New York City, she worked in a studio from photos she took during her travels in the West. The human-created “order” of the urban landscape fostered a craving for the wild “order” that natural landscapes provide. In the face of the conscious design of a city environment, the process of portraying wilderness became very freeing. Now, abstract painting takes the experiment further by letting go of the control of capturing “likeness”. The landscape and abstract paintings each have a life of their own, unifying nature, mind and time to create a finished moment as art.

Environments, whether man-made or natural, provide a matrix for existence. Jensen’s themes in painting and assemblage experiment with environment and scale, as well as the relationship between human beings and nature. How does environment reflect and/or complement our human lives? To what extent are our environments the negative space to our presence? Her personal concern is how Nature fits with current life, what it offers, what it requires, how it suffers or wins?

Celia Reed

My Friend Celia

We met in 1980, in Santa Fe, and shortly after, moved together to a commune between Santa Fe and Taos, in a canyon leading up to the Truchas peaks, surrounded by magical pink hills dotted with Juniper. I took care of the pigs, goats and chickens, and Celia watered and looked after the Jerusalem artichokes we grew. When we parted ways we stayed in touch, mostly due to Celia’s devoted diligence to correspondence. Later she would write to me from Mexico where she and a couple of friends  lived in caves among the Tarahumara. She eventually settled on the east-side slope of the Chiricuahua mountains near the town of Rodeo, about the same time I settled in Tucson. 

First she built a classic pit house, which was eventually abandoned to the rattlesnakes.Then she built her own straw bale adobe house, as much as she could by her own hand. And she painted, always on small canvases. Her inspiration was in the land around her. It was a stark lifestyle, hauling water, heating with wood, no cooling during blazingly hot summers, very little electricity. Emphatically this was her choice, a primitive lifestyle in the Sonoran desert as a painter.

There she remained for the last 35 years. She does not own a computer or a cell phone. She harvests rainwater, a life depending on conservation. She made her peace with the rattlesnakes that invade every spring. She thrived on the drama of weather that unfolded around her, and relished her view of Pelloncillos peaks across the valley.

This show is her farewell now to her desert home, as she plans to return to her native England later this year. At 71, she will enjoy her sisters whom she has missed for many years, and perhaps get to know the generation of nephews and nieces who have grown up while she was away.

Each of these paintings are a reverential goodbye to the corners of her home, to the metates filled with rain water, to the transcendentalist dreams she puzzled out. These paintings are the footprints of 35 years spent in the desert.

Karlito Miller Espinosa

Karlito Miller Espinosa

Karlito Miller Espinosa (b. San José, Costa Rica, 1989) is an artist who creates objects and composes installations informed by the direct relationship between capitalism and the structuring role violence plays in its preservation. Through an interdisciplinary practice that employs the artist as researcher and material as witness Miller Espinosa’s intention is to unmask predatory strategies of enforcement that have otherwise effectively been rendered invisible. His work is particularly concerned with U.S. policy and its effects on minority, migrant, and working-class populations.

Karlito has received numerous awards and recognition for his artwork, including the University of Arizona 2018 Graduate Student Centennial Achievement Award, the University of Arizona School of Art’s Marcia Grand Centennial Sculpture Award, and the University of Arizona College of Fine Arts 2017 Creative Achievement Award. His work has been exhibited by esteemed institutions around the world including the Newark Museum, El Museo Barrio in Harlem, the United Nations Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, the Street Art Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, Twitter’s New York Headquarters, EARTH University (School of Agriculture of the Humid Tropical Region) in Costa Rica, and the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art in New York. In 2018 he was featured on the BBC’s Documentary Series The Art of Now and was a selected exhibit for the 2018 Arizona Biennial at the Tucson Museum of Art.

Karlito Miller Espinosa graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in 2012 with a BFA and from the University of Arizona in 2019 with an MFA and is currently a studio program resident for the 2019-2020 Whitney Independent Study Program.

Michael Berman

Landscape Photography

Michael Berman

Michael P. Berman’s classically executed black and white photographs participate and extend the tradition of western landscape photography. Berman was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2008 for his work Grasslands: The Chihuahuan Desert Project. Photographs from this project was published in 2009 in the book Trinity, by The University of Texas, Austin. Trinity is the third book of the border trilogy, The History of the Future, with the writer Charles Bowden. In 2008, the Lannan Foundation organized an exhibition, also titled The History of the Future, of photographs by both Berman and artist Julián Cardona, accompanied by an essay by Bowden. The exhibition traveled to the Santa Fe Art Institute (2008), the North Dakota Museum of Art (2009), Blue Star Contemporary Art Center (2009), Ohio Wesleyan University (2011), and Tulane University (2011). A selection from the show is now on view at the Nation Institute.

Berman was born in New York City in 1956 and later came west to Colorado College, where he studied biology. He subsequently received an MFA in photography from Arizona State University. Fifteen years ago he settled in southwestern New Mexico, where he now lives in the Mimbres Valley near San Lorenzo.

He wanders the border wild lands of U.S. and Mexico and works on the local issues—mining, grazing, wilderness, timber, water, growth and the border—that impact the land. Berman brings an awareness of the complexity of the biological world to the political and social dialogue of the West to his art, which he then uses as a catalyst to renew and heighten our perception of the land.

His photographs are included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Amon Carter Museum, Lannan Foundation, and the New Mexico Museum of Art. He has received Painting Fellowships from the Arizona Commission on the Arts and the Wurlitzer Foundation and his installations and paintings have been reviewed in Art in America, and exhibited throughout the United States.

Albert Chamillard

Albert Chamillard

Albert Chamillard was born in Attleboro, Massachusetts in 1971.

He moved to Tucson in 1994 and has been a part of it’s art scene ever since. In the late 90’s, Albert cofounded Carbonbase Gallery and Studios, a student-run space in Dunbar Spring. He worked for Eric Firestone Gallery from 2007 to 2012, and founded Atlas Fine Art Services in 2011 and held exhibitions there until 2014. He’s been a preparator at the UA Museum of Art since 2019.

Since getting my BFA in Studio Art in 2003, I’ve been an active exhibiting artist and have shown my work nationally. My most recent exhibition was a solo show at Etherton Gallery in 2023, and I’ve been a freelance artist for Hermés since 2020.

Albert’s work is primarily small scale drawings that are comprised of layers of cross-hatched marks which create textile-like surfaces, and deal with concepts of memory, family, the natural world and ways language affects and interferes with our perceptions of our world. Albert Chamillard has exhibited work nationally and locally at Etherton, Paradigm and Pulp Galleries.

Amber Doe

Amber Doe
Amber Doe (b. Washington DC) currently lives and works in Tucson, AZ. She holds a BFA from Sarah Lawrence College and is a recipient of the 2023 Night Bloom MOCA Grant for the Warhol Foundation, Arizona Commission on the Arts Research and Development Grant, 2023 Projecting All Voices Mellon and ASU Fellowship. Doe has exhibited domestically and internationally. Doe is a multimedia artist who uses sculpture and performance to bear witness to the experiences of black women even as American society aims to render us and our lives as invisible and meaningless. She does not see her experience highlighted in dominant culture, so she uses her art to rectify this representational void.

All of her work is trans species ancestor worship.

William Elizondo

William Elizondo

“In my work, sculpture, drawing, performance, and digital art overlap to examine my experience with dissociation of identity and culture. Since early childhood I have battled with the alienating feelings of depersonalization and derealization, and the yearning to connect with people. I use the archetype of the clown, in both its familiar and novel forms to explore myself and the ever shifting culture, holding up a mirror to religion, sex, family, community and my own practice. The work shifts stylistically between mediums, while maintaining a unified intent that ultimately exposes the absurdity of life and reality. More recently, I spent a year as a real estate agent, expanding upon the concept of public art. By donning the character of a Realtor, I aimed to understand people’s relationship with private property that is simultaneously interconnected by a public infrastructure. I am deeply interested in delving deeper into all of these concepts through personal and collaborative projects.”

“I wish I could spend more time drawing stuff, but I have a job that is kind of soul-sucking (in a good way), that is, a first grade teacher. And besides, drawing and I have an adversarial relationship, where I end up hating most of what I do. But I continue to draw, when I can, which is mostly during work meetings. During one, I drew a dead clown, as a response to the prevailing mood of the meeting.

I got to thinking about what might have killed the clown. I added pustules and swelling. These doodles led to the series, “Clowns, Diseases, and You”. I hoped to use the clowns to educate the public about the dangers of communicable diseases, like a public service.”

Olivier Mosset

Olivier Mosset

Olivier Mosset first became known in France for having been part of the famous BMPT group alongside Daniel Buren, Niele Toroni and Michel Parmentier. Since then he has been associated with a multitude of art historical movements, involving himself in both the European and American artistic and critical contexts. 

In anticipation of many artists, who in the 1980s would use appropriation to critique Modernist authority, Mosset called into question the painter’s gesture and signature by sharing styles and dissolving authorship to reach a “degree zero” of painting. Mosset has remained committed to questioning painting as a historical object by, paradoxically, continuing to paint, turning to monochrome works on canvas and walls.

Mosset lives and works in Tucson, AZ. Since his emergence in the 1960s with BMPT, Mosset has exhibited extensively in galleries and museums worldwide. Recently he has been the subject of a solo exhibitions at Jean Paul Najar Foundation, Dubai, United Arab Emirates (2017); Hunter College Art Galleries, New York, NY (2016); The Power Station, Dallas, TX (2015); Musée regional d’art contemporain Languedoc-Roussilon à Sérignan, France (2013), and Kunsthalle Zürich, Switzerland (2012), among others. A retrospective of his work, Olivier Mosset: Travaux/Works 1966-2003, was presented at Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts, Lausanne, Switzerland and Kunstverein St. Gallen Kunstmuseum, Switzerland (2003). His work has been included in several group exhibitions including Manifesta 10, Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia (2014); Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, NY (2008); and he represented Switzerland in the 44th Venice Biennale (1990). His work is in the collections of such institutions as Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Centre Pompidou, Paris, France; National Gallery of Canada, Ontario; Albright Knox Gallery, Buffalo, NY, and Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts, Lausanne, Switzerland, among others.

Katja Fritzsche

Katja Fritzsche

The opposing tension and breadth of many human characteristics are shared by animals strength/fragility, stability/flight, grace/boldness, aggression/submission. I am inspired by their life expression of grace, strength, beauty and raw sensuality. By exploring the architecture of animal’s he and their bodies with glass, steel and other materials, I bring them into our lives and our shared emotional states. The sculptures are extensions of ourselves.

As a child I experienced the tension of opposing worlds — the rough rawness of the South Chicago st mills, the stark beauty of Chicago’s architecture, and the sensuality of animals portrayed in the halls taxidermy in Chicago’s Museum of Natural History. I see myself strongly attracted both by man’s industrial mastering of materials and by the untouched nature of the Southwest, my present home.

Drama, action and hope. Colors know it or not, are reminders of our experiences. We’ve all attached sights and visions of our lives and to our emotional selves. These paintings are references to those emotions. Everyone is going to have a different reference points; my references are just mine. In doing these paintings, there was a strong feeling in me to start with and I wrapped everything around that. I can say a lot of personal stuff about these paintings, what I was feeling when I was painting but it is for the viewer to bring their feelings to the painting. If you try to identify objects and images you will be disappointed, it is more of emotional journey. It is for the viewer to look at the work as a whole, the colors and proportions. I do believe, like many people, the world is a chaotic place, the drive to make sense, to build structure, I feel it helps us in the struggle. I have been doing color and form dichotomies for 35 years, first in 3 dimensions, sculptures, and now with paintings. It wasn’t until these recent paintings that I feel like I landed. There’s 10% hope. If you go deep and face the darkness. You have a lot more courage and will see a lot more, instead of running from it. – Danny Perkins

Eriks Rudans

Eriks Rudans

Rudans wasn’t exactly a Viking–he was born in Latvia in 1933–but his larger-than-life story merited a hero’s sendoff, art-style. A refugee who suffered through World War II in a displaced-persons’ camp with his family, he landed in the United States as a teenager in 1949. In short order, he joined the Army, got his citizenship, studied art at the University of Wisconsin, became an art professor and then confounded his immigrant success story by dropping out to do art–and nothing but.

Art took precedence over living. On a visit I paid in 2000, paintings were stacked up against the walls in piles so deep that they had almost taken over the living room, leaving only a narrow space for a single bed. Giant skeletal sculptures of a man and dog occupied what must have once been a bedroom.

Paintings featuring images alternating between lovely Rousseau-like nudes and lecherous priests covered the walls, in between the heads of angels and devils carved out of scrap wood. Rudans would make art with whatever materials he could find.

Rudans loved painting the female nude, and often pictured women in gardens overflowing with flowers and fruits. But even progressive types occasionally balked at Rudans’ unapologetic sexual imagery. Back in 1990, patrons at Club Congress were so angry about an explicit female nude hung above the bar that the painting eventually was removed. And Rudans delighted in attaching big wooden penises to many of his sculptures.
