Rebecca Rutstein: Fault Lines
Jun 30-Aug 12
When your painting studio is set adrift on the open sea, things can get a little messy. Philadelphia-based painter Rebecca Rutstein spent her last three artist residencies in close quarters with oceanographic cartographers, examining never-before-seen images of the ocean floor and translating what she learned into undulating, semi-abstract paintings. She grew accustomed to the constant motion of the boat and its unpredictable effect on her brushstrokes. In Fault Lines, her first-ever solo exhibition in New Mexico, Rutstein returns to dry land. Using the sunburnt palette of the high desert, the artist turns her attention to seismic events that occur deep in the Earths crustand employs some tricks she learned at sea to imbue her compositions with dynamic motion. Fault Lines opens at form & concept on Friday, June 30, 5-7 pm.


Jared Weiss: Hes Either Dead Or It Was His Birthday
Jun 30-Aug 12
Jared Weiss has forgotten much of his subject matter. Or rather, the scenes that he paints are often buried somewhere deep in his unconscious. Reviving suppressed memories can be a dangerous game, but the Santa Fe artist has some heavy hitters on his side: Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan and Slavoj iek. Weiss draws inspiration from the famous line of psychoanalysts in his new solo exhibition at form & concept, Hes Either Dead or It Was His Birthday. Opening Friday, June 30, the show conjures a strange sense of dj vu. Weisss figurative imageswhich resemble warped photographs from a massive theater productionare sure to lodge in the back of your mind.

Its an ideal moment to examine human history from a revolutionary stanceand present urgent questions that can reveal a new path forward. Through a monumental art installation and an interconnected series of performances and events, Mather will challenge viewers to abandon patriarchal structures in favor of a transcendent vision for humanity.

Wookjae Maeng: BALANCE
Oct 27-Dec 23
Its easy to forget that the world is experiencing a crisis in biodiversity, one that some scientists have called a sixth extinction. Humanity has grown ever more isolated from the rest of the animal kingdom, hiding away in climate controlled boxes and behind glowing screens. In his new solo exhibition at form & concept, Korean ceramicist Wookjae Maeng ushers animals out of the wild and into the spotlight. His detailed porcelain sculptures of deer, rhinos, lions, bighorn sheep and other creatures bring viewers back in touch with beings that are often pushed to the margins. Wookjae Maeng: BALANCE opens on Friday, October 27 from 5-7 pm.
