Make this year’s Valentine celebration an experience beyond a Hallmark holiday! Art.i.fact presents “Love & Loss,” an intense and irreverent installation by Santa Fe artist Rebecca Aubin that explores the twisted complexities of love.

Opening reception: Saturday Feb. 11, 4 – 7 p.m.

930 Baca St., Suite C, Santa Fe  

Exhibition dates: Feb. 11 - March 11

Rebecca is dedicating the show to her mother, Agnes Catherine Aubin, who died in 2000. Agnes taught Rebecca that love and loss are universal truths. “She also taught me that the ability to make something from what seems like nothing is a sign of creativity, and sometimes delusional insanity,” says Rebecca with a wink.

Using found objects and ephemera, Rebecca creates pieces that, while nostalgic and fun, also connect with contemporary pop culture. Like candy, some images are sweet, some are hot, and others are sour -- a taste for every tongue.

“One of the primary inspirations for this work is ‘vinegar valentines,’ those tart, sassy and vindictive cards produced between the middle of the 19th and into the 20th century,” she says. “Often sent anonymously, the cards provided a socially sanctioned chance to critique, reject, and insult another person, a way to speak bluntly without fear. If I can tap into my own uninhibited creativity combined with sarcasm and a twisted sense of humor, I feel I have done something right.”
