Santa Fe-based artist Jacks McNamara develops their ancestral imagination in this immersive solo display. The exhibition uses painting and installation to explore the seasonal relationships and pre-Christian spiritual practices common to European ancestors whose descendants have migrated into the indigenous territories and high desert landscapes of New Mexico.
Mythical plants and transcendent abstractions swirl together, offering emotive portals into the past and future. “People often tell me they’ve never seen work quite like mine,” writes McNamara. “I think the unique interplay of my media is one of the primary reasons. That, and heart.”
