Pressure/Heat/Time: Paintings by Evan Boggess

Opening Reception: Thursday, August 29 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. (Artist Talk: 6 p.m.)

Painter Evan Boggess exhibits mixed media works drawn from his childhood in the West Virginia mountains. He says that his paintings behave like sculpture requiring the audience to physically move through the work.

According to Boggess, each painting in this exhibition begins as a representational study of a directly observed raw mineral and many of the minerals used also appear in the list of ingredients on tubes of paint.

“Pressure, heat, and time are the conditions that shape earth’s metamorphic minerals. They are also the conditions under which I have structured the paintings in this exhibition,” explains Boggess. “I excavate pressure, heat, and time out of the context of mineralogy and translate them into the language of painting.”

He has a Master of Fine Arts degree from Maryland Institute College of Art. http://evanboggessart.com
