SANTA FE, NM.- Gerald Peters Contemporary is presenting The Topography of Memory. Featuring the work of Teresa Baker, Elizabeth Hohimer, and Hank Saxe, the exhibition invites modern contemplation of the concept of landscape art. Through various mediums, these three artists explore the possibilities of landscape from a conceptual perspective, offering provocative and inspired takes on the enduring genre.


Teresa Baker (Mandan/Hidatsa, b.1985) currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Through a mixed media practice combining artificial and natural materials together, Baker creates abstracted landscapes that explore vast space, and how we move, see and explore within them. The materials, texture, shapes, and color relationships are guided by Baker's Mandan/Hidatsa culture to explore how identity can relate to innate objects.

Baker has had recent solo exhibitions at de boer, Los Angeles, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Scottsdale, AZ; Pied-à- terre, San Francisco; Interface Gallery, Oakland; and The Art Museum of Southeast Texas, Beaumont, TX. Recent group exhibitions include Ballroom Marfa, Marfa, TX, Nerman Museum, Kansas City, KS, and Marin MOCA, Marin, CA. She will be included in the upcoming edition of Made In LA: Acts of Living, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA. Baker is a 2022 Joan Mitchell Fellow and was an artist-in-residence at Fogo Island Arts in Newfoundland in 2022. Baker was the 2020 Native American fellow at the Ucross Foundation in Ucross, WY, and has been an artist-in-residence at MacDowell in Peterborough, NH, and a Tournesol Award artist-in-residence at Headlands Center for the Arts, Sausalito, CA. Her work is in the public collections of Whitney Museum of American Art, Portland Museum of Art, and Forge Project, among others. Baker received her B.A. from Fordham University, and MFA from California College of the Arts.


Elizabeth Hohimer’s (b.1991) site-specific, land-based practice is an immersive study of desert atmospheres in the western United States. From her childhood in Texas to her recent travels throughout the West, Hohimer has felt a closeness to the land and a deep appreciation for the space and light of the region. In her recent sculptures, agave fiber is delicately threaded and suspended into cascading forms evoking the ephemeral quality of the desert landscape.

Elizabeth Hohimer received her BFA in textiles from California College of the Arts. In 2022 she was artist-in- residence at the Ucross Foundation in Ucross, WY and was included in the exhibition “Time, Mark, Memory: Ucross at 40” curated by Los Angeles Times art critic Leah Ollman.


A resident of Taos since the early 1970s, Hank Saxe (b. 1950) has always remained connected to the soul of his environment with an appreciation of the natural geologic occurrences of northern New Mexico. Saxe’s sculptures bulge, erupt and fold with eccentric colors that recall rock-like formations, but with an almost other-worldly quality.

Hank Saxe has had numerous solo exhibitions throughout the Southwest. Among many museum collections his work is in the Anderson Foundation for the Arts in Walla Walla, WA, and the Harwood Museum of Taos, NM. He has also received Art in Public Places commissions in Tucson, AZ, Oklahoma City, OK, and Las Vegas, NV, among others.
