Celebrating 35 years of art representation
As the 2014 Santa Fe Opera season comes to a close, Victoria Taylor-Gore pays tribute to the profound emotions that are the stuff of opera, theater, and life.
Three elements played a role in this series,Taylor Gore explains. "I was inspired by the play or opera's stage like settings and added symbols relevant to the human interactions and set the scenes against magical landscape backdrops." I staged theatrical perspectives, surreal light and shadows that guide the viewer. Viewers aren't watching the event but looking for clues that invite them to make up a story in their own minds."
In addition to Romeo and Juliet, she has explored the conflict between the free spirit of Carmen versus the lustful jealousy of Don Jose in Bizet's opera Carmen.
"Shadows of Passion-Parting is such Sweet Sorrow" New works by Victoria Taylor-Gore opens with an artist's reception Friday, August 15, 5:30 to 7:00pm at Alexandra Stevens Gallery of Fine Art, 820 Canyon Road, 505-988-1311.
