Tina Mion: Holy Ghosts

October 7, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Kouri + Corrao is pleased to announce acclaimed southwestern artist Tina Mion will present Holy Ghosts, an entirely new series of paintings and drawings. An opening reception will take place from 5 to 7 pm on October 7, 2022, at Santa Fe-based Kouri + Corrao Gallery. The show runs through November 12, 2022.

“I depict difficult and sometimes controversial subjects in my work, from suicide to environmental destruction,” said Ms. Mion. “This exhibition is no exception as it explores fear and hatred of what we do not understand, the loss of things and people we love, and the quiet death of our environment. And yet, there is always a hint of hopefulness and little omens—a colorful Hermes scarf, a green thread in a raven’s beak, a pink ladder in an abandoned pool, or stars and candles lighting the night.”

Ms. Mion’s solo show consists of two groupings: eight large oil paintings on linen and seven framed charcoal and pastel drawings on rag paper. The collection of oil paintings displayed in the main gallery captures the vacant beauty of the rural Southwest, from empty motels and dry swimming pools to abandoned houses. Ms. Mion’s vibrant colors create dreamscapes in which timeless figures span early Americana to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Fragmented poems accompany each painting, providing a glimpse into the artist’s intentions while increasing the emotional commitment asked of the viewer.
