Judy Chicago with Photography and Prints by Donald Woodman

October 31, 2020 – 2021

Through the Flower Art Space
107 Becker Avenue
Belen, New Mexico 87002

Through the Flower Art Space presents CONFINED by Judy Chicago! This show is a response to life during the pandemic and the feelings of isolation that it has caused. Featured in Confined are prints and drawings by Judy Chicago which express these themes.

Garden Smokes is a set of 12 prints that document a series of intimate Smoke Sculptures that Chicago created during the pandemic in her backyards in Belen and Albuquerque, New Mexico, which were photographed and printed by Donald Woodman. In the early months of confinement, Chicago thought she would amuse herself by returning to her early days in California when she drove around with friends, placing colored smoke wherever she wished for a series titled Atmospheres.

Agnes Martin and Me

Publisher: Lyon Artbooks (January 31, 2016)

One of the outstanding artists of the 20th century, Agnes Martin created ethereal abstractions while living almost as a hermit in New Mexico and issuing Zen-like pronouncements about her art. Photographer Donald Woodman, who shared her property (which he owned) and her life for seven rollercoaster years, takes us behind that legend in this affectionate and respectful, unvarnished and candid account to reveal an exasperating, troubled, earthy, but brave and determined painter. At the heart of the memoir is a surreal journey with Martin down Canada’s Mackenzie

River, toward the Arctic, which her “voices” instructed her to undertake. Illustrated by Woodman’s photographs, this book adds a crucial dimension to the Martin story and is destined to become a small classic of art biography.
