Eli Levin Political and Pandemic Paintings
Grand Opening July 2, 2022, 3-6 pm (one day only)
Alluvial has invited Eli Levin to exhibit his recent political and pandemic paintings for their inaugural show. Eli has a celebrated history in New Mexico, long active in the Santa Fe printing, painting, and life drawing circles, he was one of the first artists to build an art studio in Dixon, making and stacking each adobe brick at the end of the road in Apodaca. Alongside his Intaglio monochromes, Eli works in color using egg tempera which he mixes from dry pigments in small amounts. The result is a fresh and vivid surface akin to fresco, each stroke in evidence. Already an admirer of his political works, I was especially struck by his recent paintings which deal with the pandemic. Eli has also recently finished a 2-year project painting homes throughout Dixon. The images have been collected into two volumes, be sure to grab one (or both) while they are still available. ~B.
