Contemporary Southwestern Pastels. On Friday, July 5th, from 5pm – 7pm, Canyon Road Contemporary Art, 622 Canyon Road in Santa Fe, is proud to present Tobi Clement, one of New Mexico’s premiere plein air artists, as she unveils her new show, “Sensory Scapes”. The show will run through a date
In the past, Tobi has had this to say about her pastels: “When painting plein air in New Mexico I am rewarded with unexpected moments of life that unfold, and incredible, ever-changing skies and clouds. It is a gift to feel a connection to something that is a part of, but greater than me. I welcome the respite of silence and contemplation. The blessing of this connection is an expressive painting that captures the limitless and expansive quality of the Southwest landscape, and invites the viewer to share in this gift.’’
Now Tobi is allowing herself to release her grip on the specifics of the New Mexico landscape, reworking and making anew each piece at home in her studio according to her own feelings about color and depth. These “distillations” of the original pieces are more expressive and abstracted without losing the quintessential feel of the New Mexican outdoors.
We invite you to witness this exciting new direction as this local artist grows in her own practice.
