Sleeping Beauty: Charlotte Jackson Fine Art opens group exhibition
Michael Post, Untitled, 2017. Acrylic on fiberglass over steel, 13.4 x 5.2 x 2.8.

SANTA FE, NM.- A group exhibition of gallery artists and special guests, Sleeping Beauty opened at Charlotte Jackson Fine Art on March 31 and extend through April 24. The gallery is located in the Railyard Arts District at 554 South Guadalupe Street.

Like the folklore, Sleeping Beauty offers the viewer a feeling of hibernation in winter’s white blanket, but on closer inspection reveals glimpses of color as the kiss of spring promises to share the secret of new life in the work. Paul Sarkisian’s massive painting, Untitled (white line51), 2005 moves across the wall with grace. Composed of 51 panels of polyurethane on wood, it forms a vast snowy backdrop for the exhibition.

Bill Jacobson’s photograph presents the quiet elegance of gray and white. William Metcalf and Clark Walding both exhibit works that appear white, but are built from layers of colored paint that peak through the surface. Jeremy Thomas, Elliot Norquist, and Michael Post flash white with colored underpaintings. Thomas’ inflated sculpture, Blush White, floats away from the wall in white polyurethane with red fleck, and then bursts with vibrant magenta reflected from the back and Michael Post’s wall installation of five works reveal pink, orange, green, yellow, and blue. Constance DeJong’s Arc/r31 lights up like a brilliant flame through the frost.

Sleeping Beauty features two works by guest artists: Robert Kelly and Bill Thompson. Kelly constructs his painting Mies II, 2015 with layers of various paper materials he has collected during his travels, which he glazes over and polishes, before finally obscuring them beneath abstract geometric shapes and lines in solid colors of high gloss pigment. The collage underneath peaks through the top coats of cream like the ground through the melting snow. Bone, 2010-16 an amorphous iridescent pale blue, is one of Thompson’s hand-carved polyurethane blocks, spray-coated with custom-mixed automotive paint. As the light hits it, Bone shimmers between matte cream and shiny blue.
