The artists of Mosaic New Mexico and local artist Rachel Zollinger interpret life in the outdoors of New Mexico in two very different ways. . The mosaic pieces in the show will consider themes such as the interconnection of life in the bosque, of germination and the necessity of water, of oxygen, light and darkness, as well as dormancy and pollination. Rachel, on the other hand, looks at objects that have been discarded in New Mexico public lands and sees the inherent art in them. These items have been ravaged by weather and decay as they return to the earth atom by atom, and she sees this litter as a reflection of the effects of human endeavor on nature. Through her art, Rachel encourages people to be conscious of our movements and impact on the natural world.
