DAVID ROBIN

One of the joys of living and spending time in Santa Fe is that you eventually come to know all the great characters in town. No one seems to be more than two degrees of separation away. Pascal, our cover artist, is no exception. In addition to being a popular, respected, and established artist in our community, he’s someone I’m familiar with through his interest in motorcycles as well as through mutual friends. You might know Pascal too. He’s always out and about, and his French accent and charms are infectious. It’s hard not to know Pascal in this town. Pascal is not an exception. Most artists, musicians, writers, and other well-known creative types are approachable and very visible around town. Their interests are varied, such that it’s not unusual to see them at the ski area, the grocery store, the farmers market, concerts, and local watering holes. This is yet another joy of living here. Creative types are all around us, and we might find ourselves drawn together because of our common interests and not just because of their particular expertise. We’re all connected, and that makes our experiences with them and their art even more special.

Along the Pecos benefit reception On September 26, Santa Fe University of Art and Design is holding a benefit reception celebrating a reinstallation of Steven Miller’s collaborative project Along the Pecos. Miller, a former professor in the contemporary music program at SFUAD when it was called the College of Santa Fe, is suffering from ALS. Donations made at the reception, being held at the school’s Critical Space Gallery, will go directly to the New Mexico chapter of the ALS Association, and all proceeds from sales of DVDs of Along the Pecos will go to Miller’s family. Along the Pecos was first presented in the College of Santa Fe’s Moving Image Arts Department in 2008. The work is an abstract presentation of the Pecos River and its surroundings through sound recordings made by Miller, a composer and musician, and photographs by SFUAD alumna and VERVE Gallery of Photography director Jennifer Schlesinger Hanson. Fifty minutes of ambient sound that Miller collected (from the river’s headwaters in Northern New Mexico down through the southeast corner of the state) provide an aural impression of the river’s complex sonic environment, while toned gelatin silver prints by Schlesinger Hanson detail subtle organic patterns found in the natural landscape. “You walk into a darkened room with light shining on just the images floating on the walls,” Schlesinger Hanson says of the installation. “And you sit in the middle of the room while [Miller’s] composition plays. It’s meditational and very visceral.”—Cristina Olds Along the Pecos, September 26–October 3 by appointment, benefit reception September 26, 4:30–6:30 pm, Santa Fe University of Art and Design, 505-473-6500, santafeuniversity.edu

For the fifth year in a row, Santa Fe Concorso (September 26–September 28) welcomes auto enthusiasts from around the world to view an impressive fleet of rare cars and exotic motorcycles at The Club at Las Campanas. The event kicks off with VIP events at the Santa Fe Municipal Airport, where Indianapolis 500 stars like Parnelli Jones, Johnny Rutherford, Al Unser Sr., and Al Unser Jr. share stories from the racing pits and talk about their favorite cars, some of which will be on display. On Saturday, people who’ve entered cars in the show can enjoy an open-road Mountain Tour, driving south to Cerrillos for a barbecue lunch before heading up to Las Campanas, where their cars will be on view. A VIP dinner that evening allows roughly three dozen people to dine with legendary Formula One driver Sir Stirling Moss and his wife, Lady Susie Moss, and the following day, during the main event, expert judges give out Best in Class, Best of Show, and other awards. The volunteer-run Concorso raises funds for local youth charities, collecting $50,000 in its first three years. For more information, visit santafeconcorso.com.—Cristina Olds

As a comedy, Frank is hilarious. As a drama, it’s truly moving. As an argument, it’s persuasive. The argument this fantastic flick makes is that brilliant art can be born from mental illness, and it doesn’t fit with a social media culture where hits on YouTube equate with success. Frank and his band are happy. Their music might not be for everyone, but it’s undeniably authentic and compelling. When an affable keyboard player named Jon is recruited through happenstance to join Frank’s band, he brings sincere enthusiasm. And a smartphone. The band, soronprfbs (it’s intentionally unpronounceable), retreats into the forest to record its new album. Jon chronicles the experience through photos, videos, blog entries, Michael Fassbender (center) stars as Frank. and Tweets. An audience builds. They land a gig at South by Southwest, one of the country’s biggest music festivals. Frank is the band’s lead singer and beating pink heart. He’s “without a doubt the most 100 percent sanest cat I know,” a band member tells Jon. Interesting assertion, given that Frank wears a giant papier-mâché head with goofy blue eyes and a Lego-man hairdo. Always. He wears it in the shower and when he sleeps. None of his bandmates knows what he looks like. Frank is a blast. It’s hilarious. Jon is a normal person sucked into an experience with neurotic artists. Their recording sessions are strenuous madness, with Frank insisting every sound be perfect. In between, they play weird games and get physically abusive like siblings. It’s an odd recipe for making songs, but it works. Maggie Gyllenhaal is sexy and scary as Clara, the switchblade-wielding theremin player. But the movie is Michael Fassbender’s. Fassbender has been one of the most interesting actors in film for years now, but he’s usually dark and scary. As Frank, Fassbender finally dabbles in comedy. Through voice and movement, he crafts a unique character. Frank, though masked, is an inspiration rich in soul and creativity. He just doesn’t handle fame well. He’s an artist, not a rock star. Big difference. Frank is playing at CCA and is available through On Demand and on iTunes.—Phil Parker

Drawing a Cosmopolitan Line

Our Lady of the Lily: Georgia O’Keeffe. From The New Yorker, July 6, 1929, page 21. © Condé Nast

a new show at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum highlights the work of commercial and fine artist Miguel Covarrubias by Ash le y M. Big ge rs

Some may find it surprising that the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum’s latest exhibition, Miguel Covarrubias: Drawing a Cosmopolitan Line, explores the work of an artist other than the icon herself. This show, however, is just the latest—and perhaps most visible—example of the museum’s longtime scholarship in the area of American modernism. Best known for his caricatures, which appeared in Vanity Fair and The New Yorker in the 1920s, Miguel Covarrubias (1904–1957), who was born in Mexico City and moved to New York in 1924, was a multifaceted artist whose creations moved fluidly through now firmly segregated categories of commercial and fine art. Drawing a Cosmopolitan Line illustrates the breadth of Covarrubias’s work and demonstrates its significance through some 50 items, including watercolors and drawings, several of which bear the unique marks and notes from the magazines and books in which they were published. The show also includes three of the artist’s rare oil paintings, which Carolyn Kastner, curator of the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, says it was a coup to be able to exhibit. In addition to having created culturally relevant works, Covarrubias also had a personal connection to O’Keeffe. The two met at Mabel Dodge Luhan’s Taos home in 1929, during O’Keeffe’s first full visit to New Mexico. Around that time, Covarrubias, 20 years O’Keeffe’s junior, had been commissioned to draw Our Lady of the Lily, a caricature of her that accompanied an art review in The New Yorker. The two artists, along with Covarrubias’s wife, Rosa, developed a friendship that lasted until Covarrubias’s death. O’Keeffe and Covarrubias moved among an international circle of friends that included other influential modernists such as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Edward Weston, and Nickolas Muray, whose photographs of Miguel and Rosa appear in the show. Those interested in learning more about Covarrubias and his work can attend the show’s opening lecture on September 27. Khristaan D. Villela, a consulting curator for the exhibition and a professor of art history at Santa Fe University of Art and Design, will present Miguel Covarrubias, Artist, Archaeologist, and Curator: Modernism from Mexico City to New York and Back.

Miguel Covarrubias: Drawing a Cosmopolitan Line, September 27–January 18, 217 Johnson, okeeffemuseum.org. Opening lecture September 27, 4–5 pm, at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center. 16

Bang Bite Filling Station

douglas merriam

Bang Bite Filling Station’s popular You Are My Boy Blue Burger was the owner’s son’s idea. “He likes Gorgonzola, which is like an Italian blue cheese,” says chef and proprietor Enrique Guerrero. “It’s our second-best seller of the 12 burgers on the menu,” he adds. (Number one is the Bite Burger, which, thanks to its five-chile blend, is “more hot than mild,” Guerrero says.) The Blue Burger (shown here) is topped with bacon strips and sprinkles of blue cheese, and everything is doused with a juicy marmalade that includes sweet Vermont maple syrup, spicy chile, black pepper, cumin, bay leaves, and caramelized onions. This burger, and Bang Bite’s other cleverly named menu items, may not seem like your typical food truck fare, but Guerrero isn’t your typical food truck chef. Guerrero worked for legendary chefs in New York City, San Francisco, and Las Vegas (including Daniel Boulud, Thomas Keller, and Julian Serrano) and earned accolades as head chef at the now closed Galisteo Inn. “I used to run a kitchen with up to 75 cooks, and now it’s just two of my main guys and me,” he says. “We make our own bread, our own salsas. There’s no freezer, just coolers, so everything is fresh.”—Cristina Olds Bang Bite Filling Station, Paseo de Peralta and Old Santa Fe Trail, bangbitesf.com

Opening Night

STEPHEN LANG

As one of the largest art markets in the country, Santa Fe is always hosting openings at galleries and museums around town. Santa Fean NOW was recently out and about at a number of opening-night receptions, and here’s just a sampling of the fun people we hung out with.

In his show Grand Cru Color, which opens on Friday, September 26, at the Karan Ruhlen Gallery, Daniel Phill showcases 15 new acrylic and mixed-media paintings that are part of his ongoing Botanical series. Abstracted flowers, leaves, tree parts, and water features take center stage in this collection of vibrant, loosely painted works that hover somewhere between the realms of order and chaos. “[The paintings] have to make visual sense to me, but I also want them to have an element of wildness,” says Phill, who lives in San Francisco and paints in a studio that overlooks the bay. “I walk a line, wanting to be in control of what I’m doing but not too much.” Overgrown gardens outside Phill’s condo and plants that grow around homes and in parks throughout the city are a source of inspiration for Phill. And while the artist is deliberate about not painting his subjects too literally, people often tell him they see irises in his works. “I invent flowers,” Phill says. “A lot of my brushstrokes look like flowers. I often surprise myself during the painting process.”

openings | reviews | artists Phill earned an MFA from Stanford University and a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. His work is included in both private and corporate collections, including those of Citigroup, First National Bank of Santa Fe, and Kimberly-Clark. The artist says that color is “super important” in his paintings and that he’s constantly playing with new color combinations. “I buy tons of colors,” he says. “I use almost every brand of acrylics. Some brands have subtle, bizarre colors that would be impossible for me to mix. Since I paint wet into wet, colors go through changes in the paintings.” Phill has been working on his Botanical series for 12 years and notes that it’s still a stimulating experience for him. “I don’t get tired of it,” he says. “I always seem to discover ways to keep going. I feel spiritually connected to what I’m doing in this series.”–Emily Van Cleve Daniel Phill, Grand Cru Color, September 26–October 9, reception September 26, 5–7 pm, Karan Ruhlen Gallery, 225 Canyon, karanruhlen.com

PROFILE

brother when she was seven years old, Briggs has reflected upon life’s tragedies in her art. “I’m making a record of what it’s like for me to move through the world,” she says. In her latest solo exhibition, Asylum, Briggs explores a double meaning of that word. “‘Asylum’ means to find refuge, but it’s also a place for lunatics. The world is an incredibly complex place; the things that you encounter are going to run the gamut,” she says. Asylum features three basic groups of works: woodcut prints, sgraffito etchings, and a series of burn drawings. In addition to the striking La Ventana—a 60-inch-by-40-inch piece that depicts a resident of a mental institution in Juárez—the woodcuts include several in which the artist responds to “The Room,” a poem by former U.S. poet laureate Mark Strand. Brigg’s series of burn drawings started as a personal series, and the artist is now sharing a select few of those works with the public for the first time. In the images, Briggs has concealed maps of clandestine mass graves or execution sites in Juárez, which has a higher murder rate than Baghdad. Briggs overlays these diagrams with words parsed from her longstanding correspondence with Charles Bowden, the late writer with whom she published the 2010 book Dreamland: The Way Out of Juárez. The significant role of text in Briggs’s creations is also a new element the artist is exhibiting in Asylum.

Alice Leora Briggs’s new show opens at EVOKE Contemporary by Ashle y M. Big g e r s

It’s a rare person who can look at complex, chilling scenes of life in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, and not flinch. Not only does artist Alice Leora Briggs view what is both brutal and true, she makes beautiful images of those particular landscapes and offers them for viewers’ consideration. Mortality has long been at the root of Briggs’s work, extending a funerary tradition in art that can be traced to the Egyptian pyramids and through the Judeo-Christian tradition.

the motivation behind Pascal’s enduring need to create

COURTESY of GF CONTEMPORARY

by Gu s sie Faun t le r oy

The art of French-born sculptor Pascal clearly involves balance—of multiple parts, of rhythm and strength, of geometric and organic forms. But there’s another kind of balance equally vital to the creative process: the delicate relationship between being in charge and knowing when to step back. “A wood sculpture is unique not only by its shape but also by the moment when its creator needed help and allowed the medium to take some initiative,” Pascal explains. “Nothing is more boring than being totally in control.” Throughout his career, which spans more than three decades, Pascal, whose latest show, Après Musée, opens September 26 at GF Contemporary, has made a point of infusing his artistic pursuits with adventure and risk. Early on he explored a variety of materials—including concrete, plaster, glass, and clay, as well as sophisticated resins and gels—and in his late 20s, his work began to earn him solo exhibitions in Switzerland and France. Since then, he has completed a number of collaborative projects and commissions, including, in 1980, a sculpture for the avant-garde home of fashion designer Pierre Cardin.

With each piece, Pascal’s intention is to create an opportunity for conscious and subconscious dialogue between the viewer and sculpture.

While Pascal continues to create outdoor sculptures in steel, most of his current work is in mahogany and other types of wood, often finished with varnishes, resins, and patinas (which he painstakingly develops himself ) that give wood surfaces an unexpected, sometimes indefinable look. The artist, whose grandfather was a wood sculptor, studied art history and studio art in St. Raphael, France, worked in bronze foundries in Italy, and later learned aerograph (airbrush art) in San Diego. In 1997, he settled in Santa Fe. Today the sculptor finds himself leaning toward greater simplification in design while still incorporating elements of balance, movement, energy, interconnection, symbolism, and nature. With each piece, his intention is to create an opportunity for conscious and subconscious dialogue between the viewer and sculpture, he says. For the artist himself, the excitement and challenge of inquiring exploration remains the driving force behind his work. What happens if I mix this with that? “In my life I have much more pleasure with the questions than with finding the answers, except when the answer is a new question,” he says, smiling. “And that is where the obsession to create begins.” Pascal, Après Musée, September 26–October 19, reception September 26, 5–7 pm, GF Contemporary, 707 Canyon, gfcontemporary.com September 25, 2014 NOW

Andrea Bonfils’s lifelong experiences in nature have inspired the encaustic paintings, multimedia works, and photographs featured in her upcoming show Nature’s Way at InArt Gallery. More than three dozen pieces, which were created in both her Connecticut and Santa Fe studios, are part of this diverse exhibition, which opens on Friday, September 26. “The work [in Nature’s Way] is definitely more about nature itself than a particular place,” says Bonfils, who studied at the Art Students League in New York. “I swam a lot as a child and have a pool behind my house in Connecticut. I love to go skiing, hiking, biking, and surfing. I’ve always been a naturalist.” Bonfils is interested in depicting nature’s complexities. Her underwater mixed-media pieces, which are a combination of resin, encaustics, photography, ink, and oils, are about a woman free-falling into a deep pool. “There’s a sense of freedom and fear in these works,” she says. “Some people look at them and feel frightened. Others see serenity and quiet. Nature is life, and life is complicated. It’s pain and pleasure, fear and happiness.” Rain, roses, leaves, and other organic items are abstractly featured in Bonfils’s very large encaustic works. The process involves splashing wax everywhere and making a huge mess. “I pull out crazy tools like blowtorches,” she says. “Most encaustic artists work on a small scale, but I want to make a big impact and give the viewer the feeling of an actual experience in nature.” Bonfils’s large-format photographs of wild horses from an area near Placitas, New Mexico, are particularly meaningful to her. “I want to draw attention to the plight of the horses,” she says. “I’m going to donate part of the proceeds from the sale of those photos to a horse rescue fund.” Andrea Bonfils: Nature’s Way, September 26–October 15, reception September 26, 5–7 pm, InArt Gallery, 219 Delgado, inartsantafe.com

Ysabel LeMay: Gracia VERVE Gallery of Photography 219 E Marcy, vervegallery.com Through October 25 Practically the only indicator that Austin-based artist Ysabel LeMay’s work is photographic in nature is the fact that she’s exhibiting at VERVE Gallery of Photography. Her works appear to be detailed paintings of trees, floral arrangements, and birds; in reality, they’re compositions comprising hundreds of photographs arranged in a highly complex, painterly manner. “My art is a tribute to nature. It’s an offering—a moment of contemplation,” says LeMay, whose show, Gracia, will include 11 works. In this series, says the former graphic artist, “I’ve chosen to expose nature’s paradox, which I take pleasure in reinventing.”—Amy Gross Ysabel LeMay, Cosmic Nursery, C-print, 48 x 63"

Justin Furstenfeld at the Jean Cocteau Cinema Not your ordinary concert, the currently touring show An Open Book: An Evening With Justin Furstenfeld of Blue October is part spoken word, part acoustic performance, and part therapy for the artist and his fans. “I’m hoping that the evening will give everyone a chance to dig deep, connect, and explore the dark corners of why honesty, no matter how brutal, remains one of the most beautiful aspects of being human,” Furstenfeld says on his tour website. “Through poetry, music, and conversation, we heal.” On September 10, in the intimate setting of the Jean Cocteau Cinema, Furstenfeld, lead vocalist and guitarist for modern rock group Blue October, told stories about growing up in Houston, getting his first tattoo, and the first time he frightened his parents with his lyrics. The musician spoke candidly and with humor about his struggles with substance abuse and anxiety, interspersed with acoustic renditions of Blue October hits and some of his own solo material. The audience at the sold-out show hung on his every note and every word, fully engaged in the unusual performance.—Cristina Olds 28
