Postponed Jane Booth: Exhibiting Artist’s LectureApril 2 - April 2, 2020 Admission
Postponed until further notice. Join us for Jane Booth’s artist lecture on Thursday, April 2, at 6 p.m. in the Stauffacher Theatre. Free and open to the public.
Jane Booth is exhibiting a selection of recent, encompassing paintings in her inaugural showing at the Daum Museum. In her studio, surrounded on all sides by the gently rolling landscape of eastern Kansas, Booth filters cyclical impressions of the outside world through an interior process that intuitively translates the concrete and material into colorfully vibrant compositions whose poetry reimagines nature’s inspiration. Citing the Persian poet Rumi as a sympathetic forebear, Booth also incorporates aspects of the ecstatic and numinous in her heroically scaled paintings. These evocations of emotions, landscapes, and mythologies are based in a painterly language of layered color fields, expressive calligraphy, and a feeling-filled application of paint. Booth’s paintings call loudly to us even as they embody an ineffable introspection, a combination that attracts and holds us in a rewarding pas de deux.
