Opening Reception: Kevin Tolman: Alignments

June 28, 5:00 pm7:00 pm

Free

Alignments is a solo exhibition with new work by artist Kevin Tolman. In this exhibition, Tolman creates his abstract work employing a variety of mediums to invite viewers on a contemplative voyage through the intersections of celestial bodies, earthly landmarks, and the human spirit. Through this collection of paintings, audiences can explore the intrinsic connections between order, structure, and the sacred.

Central to the exhibition narrative are Tolman’s reflections on the cyclical rhythms of nature, particularly the profound influence of the seasons. Inspired by the timeless allure of sites like Chaco Canyon in New Mexico and ancient European stone circles, Tolman unravels the mysteries of ancient alignments between sun, moon, and earth. These revered spaces, once imbued with spiritual significance, serve as poignant reminders of humanity’s enduring quest for connection and transcendence.

Tolman’s studio is a passive solar adobe space designed to embrace the sun’s radiant energy. Reflecting on the symbiotic relationship between architecture and nature, Tolman shares his deliberate process of aligning his studio with the winter solstice, ensuring optimal solar exposure throughout the year. This thoughtful integration of environmental awareness and artistic practice underscores Tolman’s consciousness of holistic living.

Kevin Tolman  was born in 1949 and raised in Detroit, Michigan. Tolman attended the Detroit Institute of Arts, Cass Tech and is a graduate of the Art School of the Society of Arts and Crafts, in Detroit.  He moved to the Ramah Navajo Reservation in western New Mexico, and later settled in Albuquerque.  His work is inspired by his travels to Portugal, Mexico, South America, and most recently as an Artist in Residence with the Obras Foundation in Portugal.  His work has been collected by the Albuquerque Museum, New Mexico State Capitol, University of New Mexico, the Albuquerque Convention Center, and the Tyson Collection.
