On Canvas Art

Art a term that is used so broadly, not to mention Modern Art comes with varied opinions, revised histories finally noting the women artists of history, and many categories. So, were do we begin?

Having worked in the gallery world for 28 years and being an artist myself I am sure that my views are varied further to say the least.

Contemporary Art, also have many definitions, it can quite simply mean living artists. It has also become a term that catches art that usually is not representational. It also can mean artists that push media to the limits presenting them in a new and contemporary way.

So, art in the modern time encompasses so many things which are exciting, challenging, and controversial at times. This art is a deep expression of the artists creating in a world that for lack of a better word currently dwells on the negative which is often the exact opposite of most artists’ works. It is true that many art images are a direct reflection of the times with images that cry out for social change, this can also be noted throughout history during times of war, and crimes against man and nature.

Living and working in the Santa Fe, the second largest art market in the United States, I tend to look at art as beauty, uplifting and inspiring.

With that said, you can see almost anything in Santa Fe; from the roots of the Native American and Spanish history so very rich in the culture here to everything else. Having the only Museum dedicated to a woman artist, Georgia O’Keeffe, to the NM Museum of Art, and the International Folk Art The Art of Amish Furniture - Known in the US since the 1920s, Amish Furniture is highly sought after for its architectural quality and aesthetics. With the 1920s came the concept of "American Folk Art," and subsequently, Amish-made furniture became coveted by dealers and historians who appreciated the pieces for their sheer beauty and overall quality. Several styles, often referred to… Museum, and the Native American Museum to name just a few of many.

Along side of the museums are over 200 art galleries making Santa Fe an art center of the southwest. We have the pioneer galleries that brought contemporary art to Santa Fe before it was popular here to now having a very large selection of contemporary galleries including Veilleux Fine Art.

Often times I am asked about how to invest in art, or why to collect a certain artist, of do I think it will match the sofa? All good and important questions as you are selecting something very personal for your home or office.

My response is that you should buy art because you love it. All the other factors will work themselves out. If you collect what you love it will go with the sofa and the artist may be a noted artist in history one day. Of course it is always good to know what level an artist is currently, which is often reflected in the pricing of an artist.

Then there is always the current trend in art which seems to be Asian at the moment, so you will see serge of art in American galleries and museums. I often wonder why everyone hops on the band wagon with trendy art. With that said, there is room for all art as it is the creative expression of the artist weather we appreciate it or not. If art provokes emotion that it truly has done its job.
