Tamarind Talks: Henni Alftan

December 7, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Alftan is the recipient of the 2021 Frederick Hammersley Artist in Residence at Tamarind. She is a Paris-based painter who generates narrative imagery based on a complex process of observation and deduction. Working in figuration but rejecting a narrative dimension, Alftan’s compositions use the tight framing of close range photography to explore the similarities between painting and image-making.

“I paint pictures,” Alftan says, and “painting and picture often imitate each other.”

Inviting viewers to consider the history, materiality, and objecthood of painting, Alftan’s vignettes represent a fragmented vision of the real and address pictorial issues such as color, surface, flatness, depth, pattern, texture, and framing devices.
Recent exhibitions include Karma, New York (2020); Studiolo, Milan (2019); TM-Galleria, Helsinki (2018); and Z Gallery Arts, Vancouver (2017).

This event is sponsored by Tamarind Institute but will be held at 516 ARTS.

516 ARTS is a non-collecting contemporary art museum in the center of Downtown Albuquerque that celebrates thought-provoking art in the here and now.

Support provided by Frederick Hammersley Fund for the Arts at the Albuquerque Community Foundation.
