It all seemed exotic and alien to my southern eyes, you'll see what I mean.
|Crop circles, crops in a circle, twentieth century art?|
|Being a southern gardener, when I see a plant I immediately name it, couldn't do it there, they were like alien plants.|
|Coolest art EVER by Rik Allen at the Blue Rain Gallery, blown glass and steel. Inside the glass capsule is a tiny red chair. Love, love, love the retro sci-fi stuff, his show was titled Adrift.|
|Then there were the actual aliens, street art aliens that is.|
|More street art. I love discovering this stuff. If anyone can identify the artists let me know. This one might be documenting the alien crash sight.|
|Artist, Martin Spei defying gravity with his Meteorite Man at gf Contemporary.|
|Karen Lamonte, cast glass, at the New Mexico Museum of Art. (possibly an abduction, only the kimono remains). Seriously, I've seen Karen's work many times and it never fails to amaze and mesmerize me.|
|Awesome Judy Chicago from 2000, also at the museum. Cast glass and paint with a light behind it. Kyrptonite?|
|Jacob Pfeiffer's work is entirely other worldly, so delicate, the colors glow! This one is Bulbous, 8x10, oil on panel, at Meyer East Gallery.|
|Adobe construction is so bizarre and beautiful. It's everywhere, no brick or siding in sight. I was very curious about the construction.|
|Then I met a couple guys in the process of repairing a building. The were nice enough to answer my crazy tourist questions.|
|They showed me this section where the adobe bricks are visible. Also it turns out the color is a tinted lime wash and not really paint.|
Evidence of extraterrestrials in New Mexico-you decide? I'm just here to ask the tough questions.
|Where No Man Has Gone Before|
|Veni, Vidi, Veci|
