Ted Laredo will be exhibiting art work that riffs on the lucent properties of various media including galvanized steel, phosphorescent cotton twill tape and glass micro beads.

The pieces in the exhibit incorporate cotton-twill tape arranged in geometric configurations such as honeycomb cells and cube forms, some affixed over micro bead coated panels and painted with phosphorescent acrylics, some affixed to galvanized steel panels with magnets. During the day, the reflective bead-coated surfaces have a luminous, almost pearlescent glow. At night, the painted geometric forms emit a soft light of their own, captured earlier in the day from the available light striking their surfaces. "The reflective glass beads came out of the idea of having a reflective quality without electricity," Laredo said. "Something that's ethereal, something you can't quite grasp but is pleasing to the eye." Several pieces, including one called naphthol red eclipse and another called cobalt blue mono-diptych, are panels without twill tape that appear monochromatic under direct light sources but change dramatically when the lights are off. (Abatemarco, Michael, “Trick of the Light; The Protean Art of Ted Laredo,” The Santa Fe New Mexican, Pasatiempo Magazine, January 2011.)

Ted Laredo was born in Laredo, Texas in 1966. He attended the University of Texas at Austin where he earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1990. He received the Clare Hart Degolyer Memorial Fund Award from the Dallas Museum of Art in 1990 and the Jury’s Choice Award, Art of Albuquerque 2002, presented by Magnifico at the Albuquerque Museum in 2002. He has called Albuquerque, New Mexico home since 1991.

Exhibit/208 is an art gallery that plays a unique role in the New Mexico art scene. Owned and managed by three Albuquerque artists, the gallery provides an exhibition venue for contemporary artists working at a professional level and is dedicated to providing exposure and sales opportunity for these artists. Exhibit/208 installs shows that strain the sales requirements of mainstream commercial galleries. The gallery does not “represent” artists and encourages interested collectors and galleries to contact the artists directly.

The Finite Passing of an Infinite Passion is a group show featuring the work of 20 contemporary artists mixed with religious artifacts and ephemera, curated by Laura Ratcliffe and Danielle Rae Miller.

In choosing art for the exhibition, the curators sought not to “critique” religion, or question it, although there are several works that do. They did not seek a multicultural balance between representations of many religions, nor did they seek work that teaches, preaches, informs, or holds true to any particular set of beliefs.

The exhibition is not meant as an anthropological study. Instead, Ratcliffe and Miller chose artworks they felt express a form of spiritual longing that works within some standards of traditional religious iconographies and art historical references.

The exhibition title was taken from Wonderlandby Joyce Carol Oates. Laura Ratcliffe and Danielle Rae Miller co-curated several exhibitions in the early 2000’s, including Bittersweet, All Americans Are Soldiers, Synesthesia, and Dirty Weekend.

This is their first joint curatorial project in 10 years.

New work by Ted Laredo incorporating line, color, glass micro beads and phosphorescent paint.

Ted Laredo's use of phosphorescent acrylic paint and glass micro beads invites viewing in a multitude of light conditions: in the dark an "equal but opposite" experience of the same work is achieved. In his mono-diptychs , Laredo employs reflective glass micro beads and deep-hued monochromatic acrylic on panel. Writes Laredo: "The solidity of the monochrome gives way to an ethereal inner light." His geometric wall-drawings -necker's cube ; honeycomb cells - are constructed in cotton twill tape painted with phosphorescent acrylic. They appear three-dimensional; they fluctuate in perspective, and seem to float in negative space.

LAND/ART New Mexico Book Release
June 16, 2010

LAND/ART was a large-scale collaboration organized by 516 ARTS, exploring land-based art, involving over 25 organizations during 6 months during 2009 in Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Mountainair. The project examined relationships of land, art and community through exhibitions, site-specific art works, lectures, performances, tours, excursions, films and a culminating book published by Radius Books. The book was released June 16, 2010 and will be distributed internationally through DAP.

Ted Laredo realized two pieces for the project. One indoor project, room, for 516 Arts in Albuquerque, New Mexico and one outdoor project, billboard, at THE LAND/ an art site in Mountainair, New Mexico.

LAND/ART was made possible in part by The FUND at Albuquerque Community Foundation.
