Bruce Lowney


Artist Bruce Lowney shares the inspiration for his grand New Mexico landscapes and age old allegories.

“Jung talks about the subconscious and the collective unconscious and that’s important to me. That I’m just not personally speaking from my background, ideally and hopefully I’m speaking archetypically.”

Frank McCulloch


Grandaddy of New Mexico painters, Frank McCulloch shares how color, landscape, and being a New Mexican inspire his work.

“It’s direct looking at things, but then it’s stuff burning in your mind a little bit and it will come out later in a painting.”

Robert Christensen


New Mexico photographer Robert Christensen makes portraits of buildings that reflect the rugged and independent spirit of New Mexico.

“I’ve photographed an awful lot of buildings and the ones that look back at me… are the ones that are meaningful.”

    As a new resident of Santa Fe, I’ve only just discovered “Colores.” Last night’s episode drew my attention away from whatever else I was doing at the time, and I was transfixed by the work of the three artists you presented. Thank you for producing such an enlightening and enjoyable program.

    Loved the show with Frank McCulloch. He was my high school art teacher and made art a part of my life. Also liked the piece on Robert Christensen. Wonder if you can tell me the name of that spanish guitar piece that was in the background. I loved it and would love to track it down. Thanks.

    I’m with Wyman – I enjoyed the Robert Christensen and came here to find out what the Spanish guitar piece was. If someone knows, I would like to track it down, too.
