About New Mexican Music:
New Mexican is the solo project of American folk-rock musician Matt Hoffman, who was born in Las Cruces, NM, and whose family history extends through southern New Mexico.
The music on the debut album Take It On Our Shoulders (2018) is dusty, sandy, a little tired, the characters simple, honest, and quietly desperate. New Mexican is a new version of something old, somewhat territorial and disagreeable.
In various projects, Hoffman has shared the stage with acts such as Chris Stapleton, Langhorne Slim, Old 97's, Shakey Graves, Guided By Voices, Water Liars, Cory Branan, Jeffrey Foucault, Sean Rowe, and Marco Benevento.
About Susan M. Gibbons:
Susan M. Gibbons is a fine artist who resides and works in the Denver Metro area. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions. Additionally, her work has been included at the Enso Gallery in Denver, the Fluxface in Space in Ft. Worth, TX, and internationally with the Book About Death at the Brazilian Museum of Sculpture (MUBE) in San Paulo, Brazil. Her work is also within private collections. Susan’s work has been included in publications such as Fusion IV, Christianity, and the Arts, Mars Hill Review, and First Fruits – A Compilation of Art.
Susan works with the ancient media of encaustic (pigmented bee’s wax) as well as with acrylic, graphite, and ink. Her past work-integrated found objects such as rusted metal, bones, and various detritus within the medium. Susan’s current body of work incorporates ‘Interstices’ – bands of black and white which reflect the spaces in-between and the play of contrasts. Her inspiration comes from the Abstract Expressionists, times of quiet contemplation, poetry, and the world around her.
She holds a Bachelor of Fine Art from Colorado State University and a Master of Fine Art from Azusa Pacific University. Susan has taught as an adjunct instructor at the Community Colleges of Aurora and Denver as well as various art classes to children and adults.
