Andree Hudson’s Powerful Works Come To Mark White Fine Art

Mark White

Sextet

Sextet

Horses and cattle stampede across the canvas. Vivid colors accentuate powerful muscles, demonstrating the strength of the animals. Those who take the time to look quickly get a sense of the moment, the smell of dust rising up from the hooves, the thunder of their beats against the plains. It’s more than a painting, it;s a moment of time captured in paint. These are the works of Andree Hudson, who is known for her powerful southwest paintings.

We are pleased to welcome Andree Hudson to Mark White Fine Art. Her art can be found on her artist page.

Stand-Off

Stand-Off

Hudson began her career as a medical illustrator after professionals noticed her ability to portray muscular and skeletal forms. However she quickly followed her creative passion for painting living beings.

Hudson is known not only for the power of the animals that grace her works, but also for the drips of paint and the vivid colors. Contrasts of light and dark emphasize the movements, while accent colors draw the eye to the muscles that fuel the movement.

The resulting works speak to something deeper, they awaken a primal instinct to follow the herd and captivate audiences.

See Andree Hudson at the Canyon Road Paint Out and Sculpt Out

Hudson has long been a favorite at the Canyon Road Paint Out and Sculpt Out, and will be painting in our sculpture garden this year. For those who want to learn more about her and her work, or just want to see her process, this is the perfect opportunity.

Join us Saturday Oct. 21 during the Canyon Road Paint Out and Sculpt Out to see Hudson work live.

Suzanne Donazetti Brings Her Woven Copper Paintings To Mark White Fine Art

Mark White

Shadow Whispers Triptych

Shadow Whispers Triptych

Many painters have layers to their art. Colors and hues peek out from under those above and provide depth to the work. But few paintings have added dimension from the canvas itself. It is a unique element to the painted and woven copper works of Suzanne Donazetti. Each piece offers audiences two glimpses of the world, and they are left wondering which is the real and which is the illusion.

See Suzanne Donazetti’s work on her artist page.

Donazetti is inspired by the land, and her works reflect areas near her home in Carrizozo such as the Malpais. She also recently added scenes from the Pacific Northwest, where she has family. With each piece she aims to preserve the beauty as it is now, so that future generations can look back and see the same things she did.

Once she’s chosen her landscape Donazetti creates her pieces by first painting side-by-side pieces of copper. She layers acrylics, inks and powdered pigments onto the metal, keeping in mind how the finished works will look once combined. After the paint has dried she cuts the copper canvasses into strips and weaves them together to create a single piece that curves and bends.

Suzanne Donazetti At The Paint Out

We’re excited that Donazetti will be joining us for the Canyon Road Paint Out and Sculpt Out. It’s a fantastic way for visitors to see her unique process live and to ask questions about her and her work. Stop by on Saturday October 21 to take advantage of this opportunity and to see all of her works in the gallery.

Matthew Higginbotham Joins Mark White Fine Art

Mark White

The Story Sunflowers Told

The Story Sunflowers Told

The landscape spreads across the canvas, realistic and seemingly painted when the world reached its most beautiful stage. Hues of fiery pastels fill the sunsets, warm ambers drape across sun-drenched plains, and flowers exude the joys of life. There is a sense that if one wishes hard enough they can step across the threshold into the vibrant world beyond.

These radiant and energetic paintings are the work of Matthew Higginbotham, who recently joined Mark White Fine Art. His paintings, which seem to have a glow of their own, are a stunning addition to our stable.

See Matthew Higginbotham’s work on his artist page here.

Galisteo Storm

Galisteo Storm

A Land Alive

There is a natural energy to the land and each place has a radiance all its own. It’s this layer of the world that Higginbotham taps into that gives each of his paintings and what he strives to project again to audiences who view the work.  

One of the ways Higginbotham taps into this energy is by returning to favorite places year after year, such as the Tall Grass Prairie, The Bosque Del Apache, and the region near his home outside of Santa Fe. Each time he visits he becomes a bit more familiar with the nuance of a particular location, and can delve into its nature a bit better. Many collectors recognize the lands that he paints, and can track the evolution of the world in the rich hues.

Storm Cloud Passing

Storm Cloud Passing

Showcasing Radiance

Another way that Higginbotham taps into the spirit of the land occurs as he’s painting and in the way that he portrays each scene. He utilizes not just into the seen, but the unseen as well. He allows the underlying energy to shine by mixing oils into the paint. These oils give the paintings a glow of their own, and they are almost luminescent as they reflect the light.

Matthew Higginbotham At the Paint Out

For those who want to get a closer work at Higginbotham’s art, he’ll be working in our garden for the Canyon Road Paint Out and Sculpt Out on Saturday October 21st. While he’s a regular participant in the event, this will be his first time with us.

Higginbotham says that he’s looking forward to painting from a new place on the road, and loves the zen feel of the garden.

Join us on Oct 21 for the Canyon Road Paint Out and Sculpt Art to see Matthew Higginbotham painting live, or visit his artist page here.

Marshall Noice Comes To Mark White Fine Art

Mark White

Lawn, Lake

Lawn, Lake

Familiar shapes take on vibrant hues, trees in yellow and blue, magenta mountains and orange fields. The scene is both familiar and foreign, until one takes a moment for introspection and examines how the paintings make them feel. It is then that they realize that the work spoke to an underlying truth all along, one stripped of the mask of physical reality.

These paintings, which focus on the emotion of a place rather than the reality, are by Marshall Noice, one of the newest artists to join Mark White fine Art. Known for his use of vivid colors and exuberant energy he’s an exciting addition to the Mark White Fine Art stable.

See the works by Marshall Noice on his artist page.

Oils and Pastels

Little Ash - Marshall Njo

Little Ash - Marshall Njo

Noice works in two different mediums, depending on his needs at the time: oils and pastels. Each has a unique character and vastly different feels.

Often smaller, Noice’s pastels have a frenetic energy to them. There is a sense that he has captured a transient emotion before it could shift in a vibrant place. The colors are as energetic as the mood, and bring a lighthearted feel.

While Noice’s oils are as colorful as the pastels, the feel is both the same yet different. Colors build, blend and overlap, adding depth and nuance. There is a sense of longevity, that the emotion of the land changes slowly.

 

Knowing His Subject

Fall Evening, Whitefish

Fall Evening, Whitefish

 

Because Noice paints the mood of the land rather than its reality, he often finds that he paints familiar places. He returns time and again and develops an understanding of the locale that goes deeper than the first impressions. This allows him to paint even more character into each piece.

However in recent years he has also challenged himself to paint his first impressions. This freedom allows him to find inspiration in the smallest things, from the scene near his home to lone trees alongside the highway. The result is that he’s even more in tune with the world around him.

 

Marshall Noice At The Paint Out and Sculpt Out

In addition to just seeing his work, visitors during the Canyon Road Paint Out and Sculpt Out will have the opportunity to meet the artist and watch him work live in our garden. Noice has long been an exuberant participant in Canyon Road events, and we’re excited to see his passion infuse our sculpture garden.

The Canyon Road Paint Out and Sculpt out will be held Saturday Oct. 21, 10AM - 4PM.

Art In The Garden - Mark White Fine Art Prepares For The Paint Out And Sculpt Out

Mark White

spring arts.jpg

Canyon Road is transformed one Saturday every October for the Paint Out and Sculpt Out. It becomes a place not just to see some of the best art that Santa Fe has to offer, but it is also the studio as artists take up the tools of their craft in the beautiful fall weather of Santa Fe. Creators from across the spectrum, from painters to sculptors, glass blowers to mixed-media artists, come out to showcase how they work in a way that audiences rarely see.

While this is always a favorite event for us, this year it takes on added excitement as five of our new artists will join us for the day. They will take their places amid Mark’s kinetic sculptures and create in the calming atmosphere of the sculpture garden.

Marshall Noice

Marshall Noice captures the mood of the land in his vibrant landscape paintings. Vivid colors speak not to the reality of a place, but to the energy of the moment.

Matthew Higginbotham

There is an ethereal note to Matthew Higginbotham’s landscape paintings. By mixing oils into his paints he is able to create a natural glow in each of his works.

Andree Hudson

Audiences can almost feel the thundering hoofbeats and smell the rising dust from the herds that travel Andree Hudson’s canvas. True to life musculature gives all of her subjects a lifelike feel and vibrant color provides a sense of power.

Suzanne Donazetti

Suzanne Donazetti’s works are part painting, part sculpture. She first paints abstracted landscapes on separate sheets of copper, then cuts the sheets into strips which are then woven together into pieces that ripple and swirl.

Richard Pankratz

Movement and form communicates emotion, and Richard Pankratz fully captures this in his emotional sculptures.

 

Join us Saturday October 21 for the Canyon Road Paint Out and Sculpt Out.

Cover Story on Dan Young for Plein Air Magazine's March 2017 Issue!

Mark White

We were thrilled that Plein Air Magazine selected a painting by Mark White Fine Art artist Dan Young for its most recent cover! The story inside is worth reading for its insight into Young's practice and artistic motivations. To read the article in full, please click here.
Dan Young, Signs of Summer, Oil on linen

Dan Young, Signs of Summer, Oil on linen

Dan Young was born in Denver, and grew up in western Colorado “camping and fishing throughout the Rocky Mountains." This outdoorsy background was hugely influential to Young's development as an artist. He attended Colorado Institute of Art before moving to Dallas to pursue a career in commercial art, but even after he achieved success as an illustrator, the landscape was always persistently calling. In 1989, he returned to Colorado to paint full time.

Dan Young, The Night Show, Oil on linen, 16" x 18"

Dan Young, The Night Show, Oil on linen, 16" x 18"

Young enjoys depicting scenes of the rural American West, with subjects ranging from picturesque ranches that dot the mountain valleys to serene snowscapes and river-crossed pastures. He states, “Though I’m a landscape painter, I like introducing hints of man’s presence in the landscape. Sometimes I feel I’m in a race to paint a disappearing way of life. It’s hard to watch so many of the family farms and ranches being swallowed up by development.”

Quoth the Raven: New Bird Paintings on view by Mark White!

Mark White

Perfectly timed for New Mexico's wintry, sometimes snow-filled January days, Mark White's newest body of paintings was inspired by crows and ravens. 

Sentinel, Oil on canvas, 24" x 24", $2,900

Sentinel, Oil on canvas, 24" x 24", $2,900

"Our wonder over crows and ravens has allowed them to figure prominently in our culture. As long as people watch and wonder about the natural world, our culture will continue to be enriched by the antics, mysteries, and challenges of crows and ravens in all their forms."

-Excerpted from In the Company of Crows and Ravens, by John M. Marzluff and Tony Angell

Ravenous, Oil on canvas, 30" x 24", $3,600

Ravenous, Oil on canvas, 30" x 24", $3,600

Long enamored of the Southwest region's wild birds, White deftly conveys the mystery and gravitas of these common yet commandingly regal animals.

Raucous, Oil on canvas, 30" x 30", $4,500

Raucous, Oil on canvas, 30" x 30", $4,500

Which of this trio is your favorite? The steady-gazed Sentinel, the Ravenous raven, or the noisily Raucous crow?

Koi Metal Paintings: New for December

Mark White

A series of new paintings by Mark White, on both copper and aluminum panels, exemplify the artist's mastery of the engraved and patina-dyed metal surface.

Mark White, Red Spots II, Patina on engraved aluminum, 8" x 8", $395

Mark White, Red Spots II, Patina on engraved aluminum, 8" x 8", $395

Featuring shimmering surfaces of brilliant jewel tones and contrasting warm gold and red, the paintings range in size from 8" x 8" to 16" x 48" - all of them share an uncanny trait, which is the downward angle. This makes it seem for the viewer that he is looking down into a vibrant, glassy-surfaced pond.

Mark White, Koi I, 10" x 13", patina on engraved copper, $800

Mark White, Koi I, 10" x 13", patina on engraved copper, $800

Inspired in part by Taoist practice, White has included the following brief text to accompany these unusual, mesmerizing paintings:

Heron stands in the blue estuary,

Solitary, white, unmoving for hours.

A fish! Quick avian darting;

The prey captured.

People always ask how to follow Tao.  It is easy and natural as the heron standing in the water.  The bird moves when it must; it does not move when stillness is appropriate. 

The secret of its serenity is a type of vigilance, a contemplative state.  The heron is not in mere dumbness or sleep.  It knows a lucid stillness.  It stands unmoving in the flow of the water.  It gazes unperturbed and is aware.  When Tao brings it something that it needs, it seized the opportunity without hesitation or deliberation.  Then it goes back to its quiescence without disturbing itself or its surroundings.  Unless it found the right position in the water’s flow and remained patient, it would not have succeeded. 

Actions in life can be reduced to two factors: positioning and timing.  If we are not able to be in the right place at the right time, we cannot possibly take advantage of what life has to offer us.  Almost anything is appropriate if an action is in accord with the time and the place.  But we must be vigilant and prepared.  Even if the time and the place are right, we can still miss our opportunity if we do not notice the moment, if we act inadequately, or if we hamper ourselves with doubts and second thoughts.  When life presents an opportunity, we must be ready to seize it without hesitation or inhibition.  Position is useless without awareness.  If we have both, we make no mistakes.

A Landscape Unique

Mark White

Mark White's no stranger to working on metal - after all, his renowned kinetic wind sculptures are constructed of copper, stainless steel, and at one point, aluminum; this last material is his preferred surface for the following patina-on-metal paintings.

Mark White, Prairie Tree I, 12" x 24", Patina on engraved aluminum panel

Mark White, Prairie Tree I, 12" x 24", Patina on engraved aluminum panel

Mark selects smooth aluminum panels, custom-cuts them to his desired dimensions, then uses industrial engraving tools to achieve incredible, multi-dimensional effects that shimmer across the work's surface. The visual effect is disarmingly kinetic, in that the colors and light seem to move across the surface of the painting in an animated, glistening way.

Mark White, Prairie Light III, 24" x 24", Patina on engraved aluminum panel

Mark White, Prairie Light III, 24" x 24", Patina on engraved aluminum panel

In works like Prairie Light III, [see above] White's meticulously rendered lower grass border seems to actually waver and shift before our very eyes, mimicking the breezy rush of wind through autumn's russet grasses.

Mark White, A Distant Shore, 12" x 24", Patina on engraved aluminum panel

Mark White, A Distant Shore, 12" x 24", Patina on engraved aluminum panel

Annual trips to Malibu are veritable meccas for White, who spends ours on the beach sketching the shoreline -- a decided departure from the rich colors but arid climes of the artist's Santa Fe home. Mark's newest works, A Distant Shore, above, and Silver Dawn, below, were inspired not by Southern California however, but in fact by Southern Florida. An October venture to the sunshine state provided Mark with a fresh - and Atlantic! - interpretation of the ocean.

Billowing clouds glint and gleam in the light, interrupted by a brilliant orange horizon line in the middle, and finally the lazy stretch of waves below. 

If you'd like to see more examples of these exceptional paintings, please contact the gallery directly at 505-982-2073, or email us at info@markwhitefineart.com. We would be thrilled to send you brief videos as well of these special paintigs "in action!"

Introducing New (Well, actually around 225,000,000 year-old) Petrified Wood Fountains by Greg Robertson!

Mark White

Ethically harvested from the petrified wood-dense forests of Holbrook, Arizona, (Northeast of Phoenix, see map at right) Greg Robertson's fountains are as unique as they are beautiful. Millions of years ago, this arid landscape was canvassed with tall trees. Over thousands of years, some floated downstream to form log jams, where concentrations of petrified wood can still be found.

Our Petrified Wood fountain, installed in the back courtyard of our Canyon Road Gallery.

Our Petrified Wood fountain, installed in the back courtyard of our Canyon Road Gallery.

 

Like a thumbprint, each fountain contains indelible traces of the tree from which it formed. Greg hand-drills carefully chosen wood segments, allowing them to cycle water in a gentle, burbling sound that complements whatever the fountain's surroundings. Each Petrified Wood Fountain is around 600-800 pounds in weight. This incredible solidity requires help to move and install, but once in place, it's incredible sturdiness ensures it will be enjoyed for generations to come.

Breaking ground for the new fountains.

Breaking ground for the new fountains.

Petrified wood is a fossil. It forms when plant material is buried by sediment and protected from decay by oxygen and organisms. Then, groundwater rich in dissolved solids flows through the sediment replacing the original plant material with silica, calcite, pyrite or another inorganic material such as opal. Petrified trees today lie strewn across clay hills and within cliff faces; each log broken into large segments.

During the gradual uplifting of the Colorado Plateau, starting about 60 million years ago, the still buried petrified trees were under so much stress they broke like glass rods. The crystal nature of the quartz created clean fractures, evenly spaced along the tree trunk, giving the appearance today of logs cut with a chainsaw.

New Paintings! The Shoreline Series, by Mark White

Mark White

Just weeks into 2016, Mark White Fine Art is pleased and excited to announce a new body of semi-abstracted landscape oil paintings by Mark White collectively titled Shoreline.

Mark White, Dawn's Early Light I, oil on canvas, 20 x 24 inches, $2,400

Mark White, Dawn's Early Light I, oil on canvas, 20 x 24 inches, $2,400

In many ways, Mark's latest series contains elements of past creative pursuits. A predilection for vibrant color, visible brushstrokes, and meditative compositional structure is nothing new for this painter; on the other hand, Mark's focus on water and land - and specifically, the point at which they meet - is largely unprecedented in his previous bodies of work.

Mark White, Agua Caliente Pond, oil on canvas, 30 x 40 inches, $4,800

Mark White, Agua Caliente Pond, oil on canvas, 30 x 40 inches, $4,800

For this latest group of paintings, Mark experimented with a variety of artistic surfaces - from canvas to linen to wood panel - to explore relationships with texture and light. Ranging from sun-drenched pond scenes (see Agua Caliente Pond, above) to more abstracted works featuring striated bands of forest green and shimmering gold (see Colorado River Bank, below), Mark's newest paintings are both strikingly unique and tightly cohesive.

Mark White, Colorado River Bank, oil on panel, 30 x 30 inches, $4,500

Mark White, Colorado River Bank, oil on panel, 30 x 30 inches, $4,500

Mark White, Deep Shadows, oil on linen, 40 x 30 inches, $4,800

We hope you're as excited for this new body of work as we are! For more information on these and other new works, contact us at 505-982-2073 or via email at info@markwhitefineart.com

Our Top-selling Kinetic wind sculpture of 2015: The Counter-Revolving Iris!

Mark White

Well, the numbers are in! Mark White's most popular sculpture of 2015 is the Counter-Revolving Iris in purple and verdigris patina! 

Mark has been making this particular model for many years, and its appeal has been widespread since its inception. The verdigris bottom blades contrast beautifully with a top layer of shiny purple.

Let it SNOW - Our Kinetic Wind Sculptures Love Cold Weather!!

Mark White

Brrrrrr, baby, it's getting cold outside...! 

For many full-time Santa Fe residents, winter is the very best season. Take a look at our view of Canyon Road last January:

Pretty enchanting, right?!

Pretty enchanting, right?!

One of our gallery's most common questions goes something like this: "How the HECK will this thing hold up in the snow??" Our clients come from all over -- from Switzerland to Portugal -- and we want each and every one to rest assured that we've got you covered even in wintry climes.

Santa Fe is located about 7,500 feet about sea level, and depending on how the Gods of Winter are feeling, we can get plenty of snowfall in our coldest months. Typically, our kinetics are just fine outdoors; we leave them out for the duration of the season - really, we do!

Here is Mark's lovely Counter-Revolving Iris sculpture in verdigris - with a generous covering of snow.

We like to say that YOU know your environment the best; if you know a huge storm is coming, you can very easily remove your sculpture, pole and all, from the supporting ground rod (the heavy steel rod that gets inserted into the earth and acts as your sculpture's "anchor") and put the whole kit 'n' caboodle in the garage for the duration of the storm. This can be helpful too for those folks who travel during the winters or are worried about leaving a sculpture outside during an extended vacation.
