Drew MC’s Love Spell was sparked by a romance, but that’s just the prologue. The Santa Fe artist spent over a year exchanging intimate text messages and photographs with a faraway lover. When he vanished into the digital void, she was left with hundreds of images of herself. From this incomplete record of a distinctly modern relationship, MC drew, collaged and sculpted a mystical origin story for a new type of epic hero. Love Spell, opening Saturday, May 25 at No Land, unravels contemporary notions of faith, duty, destiny and identity.
For Emily Margarit Mason, the deserts and mountains of New Mexico have a lot in common with the beaches of Florida where she grew up. Her art, in turn, pays homage to both mountain and sky, desert and ocean—the past echoing within. Her first solo exhibition in Santa Fe, Shadows Through a Petal features meditations on place and memory that incorporate digital photography with an overtly physical art-making process. The exhibition goes on view at No Land with an opening reception on Saturday, October 27, from 6 to 9pm.
