Freckleface: The Women of David Santiago

  • Beals & Co. Showroom 830 Canyon Road Santa Fe, NM, 87501 United States

Beals & Co. Showroom presents Freckleface, a new series of mixed media portraits by Albuquerque native David Santiago

 

Santa Fe, NM- Freckleface, a new series of female portraiture where each work is     built atop a wood panel hand-picked by the artist. Santiago uses a variety of mediums- primarily charcoal and pastel, but also acrylic, ink, and makeup, bringing them to life. The women of Santiago seem to stare right back at you, blushing with awareness, they reveal a transparency preserved despite the layers of mediums, a hint of wood grain that recalls what they actually made of. This inception of meaning, details within a detail, continue across each face- their freckles, “sun spots”, are stars in disguise, a constellation hidden somewhere within their array.

The mission of The Beals & Co. Showroom is to present solo exhibitions and small group shows by featured artists. The Beals & Co. Showroom’s modest size is a key asset in the construction of a contemplative, intimate space which has been used to showcase carefully curated collections of work as well as immersive Art Show Openings.
