Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present Another World a group exhibition of contemporary artists working in methods and concepts inspired by transcendentalism. Artists include Kerry Cottle, Jenna Kuiper, Amie LeGette, Linda Lomahaftewa, Emily Margarit Mason, Thais Mather, Manjari Sharma, Chelsea Wrightson, and Saya Woolfalk.
Another World comprises paintings, photographs, prints, and holograms. Each artist explores the phenomena of perception. The resulting artworks become dreamlike portals into spaces that are shared by all yet often go unnoticed. Chelsea Wrightson’s soft pastel drawings, Raychael Stine’s vision paintings, and Amie LeGette’s painted layers of translucent silk are inspired by the mechanics of vision and illuminate what lies beyond the surface. Kerry Cottle processes her relationship to the material world through vast networks of interconnected grids in her oil paintings. Jenna Kuiper and Saya Woolfalk address the fine line between toxins and medicinal properties found in nature in their work. This is the first time the gallery will showcase works by Kerry Cottle, Amie LeGette, Linda Lomaheftewa, Emily Margarit Mason, Thais Mather, and Chelsea Wrightson.
In the project room, the gallery presents a solo exhibition of fictional landscapes scratched into plexiglass by Joanne Lefrak. These landscapes are drawn from dioramas at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City and the backgrounds of notable films. With her cast shadow drawings, Lefrak questions what delineates a real landscape from a fake one. Lefrak is an artist, museum educator, and teacher. Her work has been exhibited at MASS MoCA, ev+a in Ireland, Albuquerque Museum, and the New Mexico Museum of Art, among others. She lives and works in Santa Fe, NM.
