Luis Tapia - Store - The Owings Gallery
"The work of Luis Eligio Tapia often reveals a turn of mind that sets a traditional bulto apart from typical imagery of Spanish Colonial art in New Mexico. Such deviations do not intend to shock, or satirize, or caricature the traditional forms. They are there to exchange remarks with tradition, they are there to make tradition live."-James Moore, 4 pages, 11 color plates, Essay by James Moore, Director, Albuquerque Museum
