From chess boards to ancient city plans, from quilts to computers, the grid framework makes sense out of chaos.  Grids provide the framework from which spring ritual, decoration, game, architecture and spiritual paths.  In a frantic world, a grid creates order. It’s nice find order, and it’s fun to break out of it as well.  

Leigh Cabell and Ken Phillips take different but related approaches to the grid structure in their spring show at Artists on Santa Fe Gallery.  Cabell is a meticulous and inventive artist who takes the random and the discarded and transforms it into tightly structured designs of iridescent and transcendent beauty.  Phillips breaks the regulations of the disciplined domain of quilt makers to create multilayered  appliqué hangings.  They borrow from the roots of an organized matrix and then bend the perfect to express the mythically imperfect.

Cabell earned a degree in Marine Biology, whose luminous organic forms often show up occasionally in her art, as does her “picky detailed” neuroscience work.  She tends toward highly defined structure even though drawn to flowing shapes and lines of nature.  Phillips has an MFA in printmaking and ceramics, but moved to fabric constructions that were freer of the time constraints of those disciplines.  His mythic tapestries often are part of his ritual and worship work in his day job.

While you're at the gallery, explore two floors of studios inhabited by artists working in a variety of media, including painting, ceramics, photography, sculpture and jewelry.  Visit with our many artists and learn about the realm of the art world.
