Taos artist, Bill Arms, known locally for his larger-than-life bronze sculptures, first exhibited as part of PureGroup with a personal retrospective of some never-before-shown canvases grouped around political and religious themes.
His new show, Men Of Taos, are large mixed media paintings featuring men from the community of Taos. Real estate agents; construction workers; artists; musicians - a whole range of men are represented in this work. While crafting this new body of work, Bill Arms looked for the independent and unique depths in his subjects, for the rough edges as well as the smooth, for the primitive spark in their souls which echos the local New Mexican landscape. He sought out a western edge that is unique to that person. A western feeling that is mostly tough but can also be soft.
