Welcome to Matrix Fine Art

Matrix Fine Art features established and emerging New Mexico
artists working in painting, ceramic, glass, sculpture, and photography..

We currently represent the work of twenty five different artists from around New Mexico. Matrix is a gallery for contemporary art and carries a very broad range of art styles and media. On our walls and pedestals a client will find works both by New Mexico househould names artists and by relative unknowns.

The landscapes of Frank McCulloch and Russell Hamilton hang next to the
electrifying abstracts of Aaron Karp and the aboriginal-inspired spirals of
Susan Reid.

Color-blasting pop art by the likes of Laura Wacha, David Koch, and Stacy Hawkinson, and Johnny Taylor hang across the room Katrina Lasko's imposing slabs of lead punctuated by rope, stucco, and wire.

Crawling, biomorphic concoctions by Nick Abdalla and terra cotta earth tounges by Sara D'Alessandro complement architectural light pieces by Larry Pelak and the woven metal sculptures of John Garrett.

Leo Neufeld's figures gaze, as Emily Torvillion's idols glance; Iva Morris's characters peer, while Deborah Donelson's women glare. Mary Zaremba's photographs of drying fruits and flowers disdain the lush watery pondscapes painted by Jane Abrams.

Fiery landscapes, old-master figures, and elegant abstracts of mango trees were all recently brought to New Mexico by Collins Redman, Rodney Wood, and Kuzana Ogg.

Glowing cast glass by Suzanne Stern and deeply toned ceramics by Archer Dougherty hang near the painted masks of Judith Rauchfuss and the masked paintings of Maximilliano Pruneda.

With twelve exhibitions a year, monthly gallery talks and the occasional fashion show we entertain, educate, decorate and enrich, all while promoting New Mexico's artistic diversity. Matrix has works that will appeal to anyone, from the first time buyer to the established collector.
