Ellsworth Gallery (215 East Palace Ave., Santa Fe, NM, 87501) will present Heaven and Earth, a solo exhibition of oil paintings by Roger Van Ouytsel, and a solo exhibition of metal sculpture by Maxwell Bennett. A lifetime of oil painting, inspired by color, imagination and intuition has delivered an impressive body of work from Belgian-American artist, Roger Van Ouytsel. Viewing Van Ouytsel’s painting invoke a spiritual experience through visual aesthetic. Dancing between canvases is the work of Santa Fe artist Maxwell Bennett, whose hammered steel designs delicately play between the figurative and abstract. Van Ouytsel and Bennett create a lifestyle around their artistic expressions, building a body of work from the experience and spirituality of living an artists’ life. Ellsworth Gallery invites you to engage in the boldly executed, yet delicately curated, Heaven and Earth.
