The Haen Gallery in Asheville, NC, Features Works by Lynn Boggess

The Haen Gallery in Asheville, NC, is presenting the exhibit, Lynn Boggess: New Work 2011, on view through Oct. 31, 2011.

Boggess is one of the most exceptional and innovative American landscape painters of the 21st Century. He lives and works in West Virginia, a state whose diverse mountains, forests, and rivers provide abundant inspiration for the artist’s plein air paintings.

In place of brushes, Boggess uses palette knives and trowels to thickly layer the broad sweeping strokes and exquisite fine detail that capture the motion of a river, the bark of a tree, or the shine of a rhododendron leaf. The viewer is immediately pulled in by this unique three-dimensional texture, rendered solely in oils. Boggess’ remarkable landscapes bridge the gap between Abstract Expressionism and Photorealism.
