Tomorrow's Yesterday Home - Recent Paintings by Micaela Gardner
Fri, Feb 17, 2017 thru Sun, Jun 4, 2017
ongoing 11:59 PM - 11:59 PM


Location: CCA Center for Contemporary Arts

Tomorrow's Yesterday Home is an exhibition of ten never before seen painting by Santa Fe-based artist Micaela Garder. Painted on large Alder panels, the works are cohesive and consistent. Gardner lets her painting unfold as she creates them, preferring to be led by intuition and exploration. Her recent exploration has led her to find a fictional future world.

Ancient dwelling sites and ruins have captivated Gardner; she identifies with the spirit of these abandoned ancestral sites and uses her painting process to re-imagine a future of re-habitation. The loose narrative in ten oil painted panels is one of environmental apocalypse, survival, and humanity. The imagery in this series of painting is obscured by large sweeping brush strokes and fields of color, revealing just enough information to hint at a story line.

“There is an inscription on my soul that knows the spirit in these places, an earth-connected human tone that revokes capitalism. With these paintings, I imagine a fantastic re-occupation of places like Bandelier, during and after an environmental apocalypse. I see obscure, contained biospheres, and living technologies as they intonate with old ways. I feel the ancestors in our bodies meeting the future with a new kind of survival.” – Micaela Gardner
