The classic concept of “Painting on Canvas” was the simple starting point for this recent series. Both the canvas and the painting inevitably became exaggerated. Canvas turned into jute, twine, and garden fencing. Painting became brushwork in relief, watergilt, and burnished.

The chance to hold on to a moment that has been totally absorbing is something that my art gives to me. For these last nine months I have drawn from the memory of what it was to watch the dawn touch minarets and listen to the first call to prayer around Istanbul. I found the late afternoon light...Read more

Louis B. James is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition You can never go home anymore, featuring the work of Travis Boyer, Kelly Jazvac, Arnold J. Kemp, and Virginia Poundstone. Through diverse media, the four artists grapple with the materiality and origin of an object, creating subtle transformations and minor displacements. You can never go home anymore is a verbal stumble, a deviation on Thomas Wolfe’s title sung by the Shangri-Las, a story of a regretful runaway whose home has disappeared. The work on view betrays this inconspicuous though definitive shift away from one’s origins.Read more
Alongside the epic resurgence of non-traditional figurative and narrative art, the time honored tradition of landscape painting has morphed quietly itself, producing a sub genre of artists who create works of serene yet semi-apocalyptic landscapes, such as Jean-Pierre Roy (HF Vol.18) and Gregory Euclide (HF Vol.17) for example, an emotional tug of war between the longing for the diminishing natural world versus a painful look at what seems destined to be. Portland painter Adam Sorensen falls within this category, with his imaginary worlds of crystalline structures and bright irradiated colors contrasting with smooth, lava flow dark bumps and luminous waterfalls. Oddly cheerful in it's otherworldly- ness, the work invokes the idea of a melted, post-mankind landscape and gives the landscapes their star turn as seemingly sentient personalities of their own. -Kirsten AndersonRead more

These works were made in waiting rooms of one kind or another. Densely hand-stitched abstract forms centered on raw linen, they are shaped by a desire to develop a new visual language and to forge a new working methodology—peripatetic, roving, claiming its own time and space.
