Inpost Artspace Reception: Adjacent Possible | Artwork by Isadora Stowe

Artist Reception:   Friday, March 15, 2019 / 5 – 7pm

The Inpost Artspace is pleased to announce Adjacent Possible, a selection of monotypes created while in residence at Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont by Isadora Stowe.  Additionally, each monotype is layered with spray-paint, stencils, collage and abstracted topographical map drawings.  The maps are connected and separated areas of the southwest borders of New Mexico, Texas and Mexico. Stowe’s work explores identity and space construction, real or imagined. She is interested in the ideas of place and cultural constructions and states, “maps are established to show us where we are, but when made ambiguous, a sense of direction can be lost and questions about our own constructions of where and who we are surface”.  The title of the show, Adjacent Possible,references Steven Johnson’s description in which he illuminates the adjacent possible as “the kind of future, hovering on the edges of the present state of things, mapped in which the present can reinvent itself…”.

Isadora Stowe is a multi-media artist and arts lecturer whose work focuses on the narrative of environment translated and coded into complex psychological landscapes. Stowe grew up in the southwest border region, living and working in New Mexico, Texas and Mexico. She credits these experiences for providing a heightened awareness of geographical and political boundaries; and a fascination with the exploration of identity of self in her work. Stowe earned her BFA in Painting with a double major in Cultural Anthropology, a minor in Native American Studies and an MFA in Painting & Drawing at New Mexico State University. She exhibits her work widely and is represented in many collections across the country and in Mexico.

Exhibition Dates:   Monday, January 28, 2019 – March 30, 2019

The exhibition may be viewed during the reception, Outpost performances, box office hours, (M-F 2-5:30pm), and by appointment. The Inpost Artspace Gallery is FREE of charge.

Inpost Artspace Reception: Night Navigation | Artwork by Derek Chan

The Inpost Artspace is pleased to announce Night Navigation, a selection of inter-connected artworks from 2013 to the present, by Derek Chan. The artworks in Night Navigation look to celestial phenomena as a guiding force during uncertain times. The exhibition features recent acrylic paintings on panel inspired by rare cosmic and geological events amidst the speed and rate of change of modern life. Also included, are three mixed-media banner pieces on amate bark paper from 2013 and updated in 2018. These banners draw influence from the Dresden Codex; the oldest surviving book of the Americas. Within the book, the pre-Columbian Maya peoples recorded their observations of lunar phenomena, planetary cycles and other astronomical occurrences. These observations were aided by the Maya peoples fully developed written and numerical system. It is this numerical system in which Chan’s banner pieces reference and re-interpret through modern day glyphs. A recent element in his work is the symbol of the labyrinth. The act of following or creating a labyrinth is thought by some to be a balancing and healing practice. The exhibition will also include an interactive element and short animation.

Derek is a visual artist based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He was born in Berkeley, California. He received a BA from the University of California, Los Angeles and later an MFA from the University of Illinois, Chicago. Participating as a Monastic-monk, Derek worked in collaboration with Chicago artist and urban planner Theaster Gates, for Gates’ contribution to the 2010 Whitney Biennial. In 2013, Derek participated in the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program. His work has been exhibited at Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Carrie Secrist Gallery, the Roswell Museum and Art Center, the Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe and David Richard Gallery among others. In 2018, he will have work on view in the Living Architecture exhibition at 6018 North, Chicago. Derek is adjunct instructor of drawing at the University of New Mexico for the Fall 2018 semester.

Artist Reception: First Friday, November 2, 2018 // 5 – 7 pm
Exhibition Dates: October 29 – December 1, 2018
