Becky Holtzman: Taproot

David Ondrik : Please Add Water


Contemporary Albuquerque presents two new art exhibits: mixed-media works by Becky Holtzman and photographs by David Ondrik.

Becky Holtzman's imagery deals with the interior of the human body. She draws organs, bones, vessels - relating them to personal or global issues. Fish swim around pelvis bones; moons are encircled by teeth or pebbles. Her work refers to the lunar cycle, to fish, to the inner workings of the human body. In some ways, these elements relate to water -- which provides the theme of David Ondrik's pieces. The lack of water in the desert southwest where we live is something that we have become increasingly aware of in recent months. Ondrik has photographed locations around New Mexico that are affected by the lack of water. These two artists approach the concept of water in completely different ways. One has to wonder if the common thread is intentional or coincidental, as Holtzman and Ondrik are married to each other.

Virtual exhibits are presented on an ongoing basis, featuring contemporary art which is made in Albuquerque, seen in Albuquerque, or relevant to Albuquerque. Past shows are archived below. Please contact us if you are interested in submitting work for consideration.
