Martha Tuttle at Pie Projects

Martha Tuttle, Friendship Painting (2021), wool, silk, and pigment

Local artists Joanne Lefrak and Martha Tuttle play with light and shadow in works that explore corporeal relationships. Lefrak’s practice involves etching on Plexiglas, which creates figurative shadows when the light passes through. In her recent work, Lefrak, SITE Santa Fe’s director of education, focuses on empowering imagery of women in the prime of life. Tuttle’s abstract paintings are created with spun, woven, and dyed wool embellished with a variety of mediums, including graphite, stone dust, and natural pigments. Her works explore the physical connection to the natural world by way of texture and translucency. A reception for their two-person exhibition, Summertime at Pie Projects, which is presented in partnership with Albuquerque’s Richard Levy Gallery, takes place at 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 26. The exhibition is up through July 10.
