New Mexico artist Carla Forrest provides an exciting vision of the Southwest through her spectral luminescent works, inspired by direct observation of nature and life. Forrest attributes her love of painting with a palette knife to her undergraduate study of sculpture and modernism. Honored as a Local Treasure by the Albuquerque Arts Business Association, Forrest’s personal artistic mission integrates awareness of environmental conservation, community connectivity, and creativity. She’s a first-generation Russian-American who is inspired by contemporary Russian impressionism and the Pointillists’ method of placing two colors side by side to let the eye blend them into another color.
