Iron in the blood:

CHRISTINA SPORRONG

By Tara Somerville

Photos by Tina Larkin

After my tiny sample of forging, I scan the layers of shelves and projects underway in this 2,000-square-foot studio she shares with Christian Ristow, her partner and co-collaborator. Massive steel feet and a shoulder ball joint for what is going to be a 30-foot-tall robot dominate his half of the studio.

“No way. I’m chicken,” I say as Christina Sporrong offers me a rod and beckons me to the metal forge, roaring at 2500 degrees. I’m happy to watch from a distance as she slides the rod into its blazing cylinder. After one end turns red hot, she plucks it out, places it on the anvil and hammers the fiery end to a point. Scale (metal bits) fly about. “You only have about a minute,” she explains. Then the metal cools back to solid and if you want to continue shaping and bending it, it must be reheated in the forge. Curiosity trumps fear and now I’m whacking a blazing rod of my own into a twisted scepter. Resting it on the anvil’s varied edges, I can create a curve or an angle or begin a spiral. I place it aside to cool and it singes a nearby rubber hose. “It’s serious heat,” says Christina, whose dexterity and ease around these daunting machines has roots in a deep respect for the trade, its methodology and dangers. She was first introduced to metalwork in the late 1980s. Linus Coraggio posted a flyer at Parson’s School of Design in Brooklyn where Sporrong was attending college. It was a ripped off piece of notebook paper with “Welding?” and his phone number scrawled on it. His shop on Ave. B and 2nd St. had an entire welded wall of bike and car parts, plumbing fixtures, “anything he’d find in New York City,” says Christina. “I walked in there and my heart ... was like this is where I want to be.” When she arrived in Taos in the mid-’90s, Les Michel, a master blacksmith from El Rito, helped her set up her studio of antique tools. “I’m the Old World tool person,” she says.

“He’s the robot guy,” says Sporrong, And her great inspiration. “He taught me to drive a forklift and a crane truck. He taught me hydraulics ... he’s been enabling of the big stuff. Between the two of us there’s not much we can’t do.” Christian has a few weeks left to complete the robot for Coachella, a music and art festival in Palm Springs, Calif. Sponsorship through grants from such festivals is what makes these large projects possible. The couple staggers their proposals so that only one large-scale project happens in the studio at once. “Heron,” a crane which extends to 32 feet with its beak and hosts aerial acts, was Christina’s honorarium project at Burning Man 2009. It also flew acrobats at a local preview show and at arts festivals in New Orleans and El Paso. Sculpture ideas usually come to her in dreams and then she constructs models as the idea gestates. Because acrobats would be hanging from the Heron, several at a time, she consulted regularly with an engineer during construction to ensure safety. Christina’s 2010 Burning Man installation was “Caged Pulse Jets.” Five handmade pulse jets (jet engines without moving parts) of varying sizes suspend and whirl in a cage creating a fire show. Each size of pulse jet makes a different pitched percussive sound so the piece is also a musical instrument, which the audience gets to play by controlling speed and amount of propane.

Large-scale pieces take a few months to a year to complete and rely on a steady crew of assistants. Her current brainchild, pending funding, is “TaranTula.” Sixteen feet high, its legs will have gaps inspired by the look of dried Saguaro cactus. She grabs a piece of cactus and shines a flashlight through.  “It will always be casting cool shadows. It’s almost more about the shadows,” she explains. A rope web on the side will support climbers who want to lie in its body and watch the stars.

“I usually think up pieces that I have no idea how to do. Process is everything,” she says. “(Pulse Jets) works with the right balance of oxygen fuel and sizes of tubes. It’s a mathematical equation that has to be just right for it to work,” says Sporrong. The jets showed most recently at Maker Faire in the Bay Area in 2013.

Stepping away from steel and aluminum for a moment, Sporrong and Ristow’s most complex and consuming creative project yet is arguably Kodiak, the couple’s 3-year-old son. Back in the living room of their homemade house, his fingers poke through the head of the TaranTula model. “It’s really tall. Can you hang on it?” he asks.  “One day, Kodiak,” says Sporrong. “One day you can hang on it.”

As she brings these projects to fruition, it’s the visceral experience of metalwork that keeps her passion burning. “I have a core connection to (metal.) Like Tom Joyce, one of my inspirations, says: It’s part of our composition, part of our blood ... I love the way it smells,” she says.  “Welding is such a private experience, you wear a helmet, it’s all dark and just you and the metal. It’s all about perfecting the trade. You go to a space where you lose space and time and forget about food, I’ll go for eight hours without drinking water.” 30 • www.galleryguideoftaos.com

MISSION GALLERY:

Fifty-two years and counting

By Teresa Dovalpage

Photos by Tina Larkin

Rena Rosequist didn’t imagine, the day she set foot in Taos for the first time in 1960, that she would be managing an art gallery here for over five decades. Mission Gallery is, in fact, the oldest gallery under continuous ownership in New Mexico. It was founded by Ivan Rosequist in 1962 and Rena became its first manager. She had the right background for the job, having studied art and art history at the University of North Carolina and later at Black Mountain College, near Ashville. “I have always been interested in art,” Rosequist said. “Though I never wanted to be an artist, I have had many friends in the artistic community. I like dealing with them and helping them sell their works.” She and Ivan Rosequist got married in 1970 and they continued to run the gallery together until his death in 1993.

IS THERE A SECRET FOR SUCCESS?

When clients are interested in something she doesn’t have, Rosequist directs them to other galleries where they can find what they are looking for. “This is not a cutthroat business,” she said. “For me, it’s very important that my customers don’t wake up the day after they get a painting with a bad case of buyer’s remorse. I want them to enjoy their purchase.” After all, she said, buying a work of art isn’t the same as buying a refrigerator. “You don’t actually need a painting,” she said, “but there is a spark of the creative force in every well-done work of art that speaks to people’s souls. My secret, if we should call it that, is guiding people so they can get in touch with this spark.” That being said, there are some basic rules that every gallery owner should follow.

Keeping a business alive for such a long time isn’t an easy task. I asked Rosequist if she had a personal formula for success.

ROSEQUIST’S RULES

“Actually, I have no business secret or selling philosophy,” she said. “I know it may sound cliché, but I don’t just try to sell a painting or a sculpture. I am here to help people discover the kind of art that they would be happy seeing every day in their homes and to introduce new artists to the public.”

“The most important thing is being knowledgeable about your product,” she said. “Educate yourself about the artists’ work, their style and influences, the mediums they use, and the larger art world. Artists will share all this information with you, since they are often happy to talk about their creations.” Pricing is another essential issue. In the beginning, works

GALLERY SPOTLIGHT

of art should be priced in a way that allows artists to keep their self -respect, yet not so outrageously high that it condemns the piece to an eternal life on the shelf. “You have to be realistic,” she said. “As pieces start selling and the artist becomes better known, I can raise the prices. But I can’t lower them after they have been set.”

“I met Mark Adair many years ago, when she owned Clay and Fiber Gallery, which was one of the best arts and crafts galleries in town,” she said. “Once I saw one of her paintings at a restaurant and I thought it didn’t belong there. I called her, asked her to show me her work and I have been selling her paintings for 14 years now.”

A BRIGHT FUTURE

Record-keeping is a key to business success, too. Rosequist carries an old fashioned ledger for customers’ accounts. “When we started the business, over 50 years ago, there were no computers or credit cards,” she said. “I prefer to use ledgers, anyway, because they don’t crash and nobody can hack them. Totally safe!” She does her own bookkeeping and enjoys it. “It’s like doing crossword puzzles,” she said.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT ARTISTS Rosequist doesn’t follow any artistic trends. She doesn’t have any artistic concept that she adheres to, either. “At this time of my life I have chosen to work only with people I like, not just in terms of the artistic value of their work, but also their personality,” she said. “I don’t have time for uncooperative or difficult people, but I value and respect the artists I work with.” That’s probably the reason she has worked with the same artists for so many years, establishing a mutually beneficial partnership.

Rosequist sees a bright future ahead for Taos artists, especially in terms of educational opportunities for younger generations. “It’s wonderful that they can take art classes at UNMTaos with very well-known artists,” she said. “I have also noticed a growing interest in art among young people and that is very encouraging for all of us.”

FEAST AND FAMINE Rosequist has come to accept the fact that the art market is a fluctuating one. “There will be feast and there will be famine,” she said matter-of-factly. “In good times, I know it is going to get bad. In bad times, I know it will get better. And in the end, I can’t tell the difference.” This Zen-like approach to the world of sales may be Rosequist’s secret, after all.

IN THE MOMENT

Havu Gallery in Denver, Colo.

At the young age of 4, oil painter JIVAN LEE sat on the couch next to his mother in a small house in Woodstock, N.Y. and watched her in amazement as she painted incredible pieces of art out of thin air. When he first tried to paint, he became frustrated and could not figure out how his mother did what she did. During his freshman year of college, Lee decided to take an oil painting class. After four months of attempting to paint something cohesive, his professor placed him in an advanced painting class the next semester. While following in his mother’s footsteps, Lee started to see the world as a painter, and “after that,” Lee says, “I was hooked.” Today, at the age of 29, Lee has a gallery on Bent Street called Heinley Fine Arts. He also displays work in the Meyer East Gallery in Santa Fe, the Galerie Kornye West in Fort Worth, Texas, and the William

Lee specializes in oil paintings with a central focus on direct observation — painting what is right before his eyes. After having a dream about Taos, a place that he knew nothing about, Lee came to Taos. He decided to make Taos his home after driving around Taos Pueblo and seeing the sunset light hitting Buffalo Pasture and the Taos Mountain. It was at that moment he felt he had found his home. Taos has these “big spaces that encroach on humanity’s hustle and bustle,” says Lee. “Everything is so open, and so expansive. His inspiration for painting comes from other artists, his friends and family, and dramatic weather, “but mostly, any moment that catches my attention. Something has to ‘pull’ me… it’s surprising, it’s unexpected, it’s spontaneous.”

PASSION FOR CLAY

3 UNDER 35

Taos potter LOGAN WANNAMAKER, originally from Durango, Colo., was first introduced to the art of clay when he was 15. His love for clay was immediately sparked by the meditative qualities of the wheel and just the simple act of pressing his hands into the wet earth.

Wannamaker focuses on the functional craft of ceramics, specializing in atmospheric firing. Because his work is not glazed, the decoration comes from the serendipitous nature of the kiln’s atmosphere. In order to create these environments, he often uses table salt or baking soda in the kiln throughout the firing. Wannamaker’s many different styles and techniques depend on the various types of kilns he uses. Since 1997 Wannamaker has resided in Taos, opened a respected ceramics gallery and established a summer workshop program offering ceramic classes to locals and tourists. After hosting many workshops in his studio, Wannamaker says his style is greatly influenced by the many different artists he has worked with. “I am just now starting to determine my actual voice in clay,” says Wannamaker. Much of Wannamaker’s inspiration comes from the Taos landscape, “the virga on the horizon after a summer rainstorm, snow covering weathered adobe … the smell of sage and smoke, the firing of a kiln on the mesa.” “I was drawn to the culture,” says Wannamaker, “Taos exudes raw beauty. The rugged attitudes of its inhabitants, historically and now, make me feel part of a spirit that I like to think embodies the West.” “I like that the pottery has always been a part of the culture of the Rio Grande Valley.” 65 • www.galleryguideoftaos.com

Now 34, Wannamaker owns Logan Wannamaker Pottery, located downtown just north of the Taos Plaza across from the Taos Inn.

CHRISTY SCHWATHE

3 UNDER 35

DARES TO BE DIFFERENT “There was never a point when art entered my life; it was just always there,” says 33-year-old painter and printmaker, CHRISTY SCHWATHE. Originally from Aurora, Colo., Schwathe grew up in a world of crafts, oil paints, bronze sculpture and woodwork. Schwathe’s work is exhibited at the Taos Artisan Gallery on Bent Street as well as in a little studio in the spare bedroom of her Costilla home. She is currently working on her paintings, and “honing the skill for depicting the human form and face … I’d have to say that people are my specialty,” says Schwathe. Schwathe says she tends to be brave with her art much more than in her own life. She enjoys using materials that cannot be controlled and is excited with whatever she ends up with. Her work starts off with thin lines and textures, starting loose and bold, then working tighter until the piece is finished.

Schwathe has lived in Taos for 14 years now. When describing what is special about Taos she says, “I could tell you all the usual things that slap you right in the face as soon as you pull into town — like the mountains, the interwoven cultures, the light, the art, the Gorge, the pueblo etc.—but what is special to me are the things that take a while to appreciate. I like places that are rough around the edges and the type of independent spirit these places create.” Given her nontraditional style of art, she struggles to break into the Taos art market with work she feels is not typical for this region. She says there is a lot of art not represented here and there is so much potential for new work while still maintaining the historical and traditional subjects. “To my own surprise,” she says, “I’ve also been finding new inspiration in almost all things Southwest, which has opened a whole new exciting world of subjects and ideas for me.”
