Solitude a solo exhibition by West Virginia artist, Lynn Boggess opening in Santa Fe, New Mexico this Friday presents first viewing of rare, small works by the artist.

11 May 2013, oil on canvas, 12" x 24"

“Painting in the studio doesn’t have the force of nature compelling you or driving you to make these works with the same dynamic qualities.” Rather than simply painting the scene he is in, he works “to record what it feels like to be there.”

Lynn Boggess presents an untouched vision of nature that transports the viewer to the reflective and pure environment in which his landscapes are created. By means of plein-air techniques and the use of cement trowels as brushes, an innovative approach to oil paint is realized, resulting in works that are simultaneously dynamic and soothing. These landscapes overwhelm the senses with lush and vivid scenes while also allowing room for meditation on the deeper relations between human life and the natural world.
