After twenty years in Los Angeles working in animation as a background artist for Disney, DreamWorks, and Warner Brothers, Hye Coh moved to Santa Fe three years ago.  She soon came upon a copy of Axle Contemporary's E Pluribus Unum: Santa Fe, our book containing hundreds of black and white portraits taken in 2012. As a newcomer to New Mexico, she was searching for a way to connect to the place and the people.  A dedicated artist, she turned to painting. She approached Axle Contemporary to secure our permission to use material from the book.  We enthusiastically agreed, and one year ago ( August 1, 2014) she began her project, painting 6" square oil paintings from many of the portraits in the book. On August 1st, 2015,  she completed her 100th painting in the series.  She is now teaching Figure Drawing at the Santa Fe Community College, and, partly through her 100 Portraits project has found a place for herself in Santa Fe's community of artists.  Axle Contemporary has teamed with Santa Fe's Center for Contemporary Arts to present the entire series of 100 portraits.  The works will be available for sale as will the book, E Pluribus Unum: Santa Fe which contains all of the source material for Hye Coh's project.
