VIBRANT POOL

VIBRANT POOL

January 21 – May 1, 2022

Opening Reception: Friday, January 21, 2022, 5-8pm. Masks and proof of vax required.

Vibrant Pool presents the work of three New Mexico-based artists working across a variety of disciplines in innovative ways. Vibration—whether it be sonic, photic or chromatic—elicits energy, resonates in the space between us and generates excitement. The bodies of work presented by each artist are emergent processes; pieces that become new again at each interaction or shift of the light. Ranging from sound installation to experimental photography to light sculpture, the work in Vibrant Pool showcases some of New Mexico’s brightest emerging artists: Zuyva Sevilla, Kirsten Angerbauer and Emily Margarit Mason.

Curator and gallery manager, Alison Nitkiewicz. Co-curator, Emma Zigman

ZUYVA SEVILLA

Zuyva Sevilla is a semi-sentient collection of atoms feebly trying to explain, interpret and observe. As an inter-disciplinary artist, his work aims to compose and collect an interpretation for the inherent chaos of the universe, inspired by everything from the proto-scientific to the metaphysical. Myriad methods within digital fabrication, sculpture, projection, creative coding and light are key as ways of creating more combinations of infinity. While varied, his work focuses on the systems and forces that exist around and between us, trying to bring light to energies that let the world reside within our perception.

KIRSTEN ANGERBAUER

Kirsten Angerbauer (she/they) is a queer, interdisciplinary artist whose work spans public art, sculpture, performance, installation, sound art + research, and new media processes. Angerbauer is the Fabrication Lab Coordinator at the University of New Mexico School of Architecture and Planning, and has exhibited work across the country including in Colombia, Missouri, across north Texas, and in New Mexico.

Angerbauer’s work investigates individual experience, perception, sensory data, and process based transformation of materials. Their practice lies at the intersection of digital and analog design, using these systems to transform and abstract form and space. Angerbauer introduces multisensory environments that offer moments of reflection and shared emotions within the human experience.

Angerbauer holds a BFA from the University of North Texas (2018), and is currently pursuing a MBA (exp. 2023)  at the University of New Mexico.

EMILY MARGARIT MASON

Emily Margarit Mason is an artist whose photography reimagines the perceived natural world from something seen to something felt, exploring how the multifaceted nature of experience might manifest emotionally. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Photography with a minor in Book Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Baltimore, New York City, Milwaukee, Chicago, Miami, and Santa Fe. Emily is currently living and working in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
