ABOUT JIM POLAN



Jim Polan loves stories. He tells them, he paints them. Sometimes the title precedes the paint, but sometimes it’s the other way around. In most works, the title is intended to be a compositional element. The works, more or less, are edited action paintings with narratives. Despite his three degrees, Polan still claims that whatever he learned of art, he learned in his father’s studio.

ABOUT PASCAL



Pascal Pierme does not “feel good” unless he is making. From an early age, his grandfather’s garage studio inspired him to push the boundaries of his innovative mind and creative endeavors. Gaining notoriety in Europe as a promising young sculptor, Pierme had many solo exhibitions and showed alongside creative giants, including Pierre Cardin. Originally from St. Rafael, France, Pierme decided to move to New Mexico and settle in Santa Fe in 1997. Acknowledging his foreign status in America, he saw this as an advantage; seeing the surrounding landscape and culture with fresh eyes and incorporating these discoveries into his process. Uncovering peace and inspiration in his surroundings, Pierme opened a new chapter in his career as a sculptor. His evolved process and risk-taking has turned heads both nationally and internationally. Critics, curators, collectors and artists alike revere his ongoing bodies of work.

FOEJKE FLEUR

ABOUT JAMIE KIRKLAND



Jamie Kirkland seeks to evoke a sense of limitless space, of expansiveness, stillness and calm in her paintings. Her work has been described as “minimalist abstract landscape.” Kirkland desires to speak to the viewer through simplicity and by reducing the landscape to shapes and forms, much the same way a poet expresses an idea in three lines of haiku. And just as traditional haiku contains a kigo, or season reference, her paintings reference seasonality with an economy of expression that is almost always atmospheric.
