We're so excited for fall in South Central New Mexico! ✨Change is in the air!

Leaves changing colors are one of the indicating signs of the autumn season. Here at White Sands, the bright green leaves of the Rio Grande Cottonwood (Populus deltoids wizlizenii) turn to vibrant colors of orange and yellow. Fall into your National Parks this season and experience cooler temperatures and beautiful scenery!

Art Hop in Truth or Consequences is THIS SATURDAY, September 10th! ✨RioBravoFineArt, located at 110 N. Broadway Avenue in Truth or Consequences, NM will feature “Trying to Catch the Wind” by Roy van der Aa. This collection of new mixed media paintings, which van der Aa calls “a re-imagining of landscape painting” will be displayed during the Art Hop on September 10 th from 6-9pm. The show will run through October 28 th. Traditional landscape is a static snapshot which freezes a scene. As a kid drawing in the backseat van der Aa noticed that clouds moved, light moved and ebbed and flowed. When he sketched and painted outdoors wind blew and bugs flew into the paint. Not only that – the artist moved and his mood changed as well. Images flowed into each other and he wanted to find a way to express that.

At an exercise in late 2017 with an art discussion group, each participant did a fast torn paper collage and used it to interpret an assigned quote. Van der Aa received the William Plover quote, “Creativity is the power to connect the seemingly unconnected.” This resonated with him and he overpainted copies of his collage in unique variations finding connections between different elements in various ways. This meant choosing a different dominant color in each piece and enlarging or reducing elements.

The variations are almost musical in nature – van der Aa states a theme and then expands on it thoughtfully and immediately. In time he developed a vocabulary of white shapes and dotted lines to act as counterpoint in the composition. Twenty of these are enlarged and painted in a 22” x 17” size. These works are quirky, moody and self contradictory. Roy van der Aa was born in Amsterdam, The Netherlands in 1956 and he grew up in Montreal, Canada. His formal education includes 2 years of Fine Art specialty at John Abbott College, and 3 years at Concordia University studying printmaking and archaeology. He moved to the US in 1989. He has had over 118 solo and group shows in The United States, Canada and Europe.
