Albuquerque Journal Review "Strange Juxtaposition Vies For Your Attention"

The University of New Mexico Harwood Museum of Art in Taos is hosting “Falling Without Fear,” “Curiosity: From the Faraway Nearby,” “Charles Luna” and “Inigo Manglano-Ovalle: Juggernaut” as part of the ISEA 2012 series through Jan. 27.

Maybe it was the altitude or the fact that winter had actually arrived in town, applying snow to every surface with an underlayer of ice, or it could have been the yummy brunch my wife and I had at a local bistro.

All I know with certainty is that I lost my resolve once inside the cosy galleries that constitute the Harwood Museum of Art. Instead of focusing my attention on the continuous loop, machine bad, wilderness good, videos and still photos of powerlines, UFOs and mine tailings, I wandered upstairs where I discovered “Unbound,” a mixed-media solo show by 13th-generation Taos native Maye Torres.
