This event has ended.

Passing Through, an exhibition of recent work by Jan Lhormer takes place in the Project Room and features abstract paintings influenced by the coastal landscape of Cape Cod, Massachusetts where she currently lives. In these works, the artist creates fictional worlds connected to water including sea and skies, ponds, gardens and marshes. The paintings are built intuitively through visceral layers of color and gesture. Lhormer choreographs scenes influenced by romantic landscape paintings, scientific matter, and the rich, expressive qualities of paint. Forms such as flora, fauna, buds, fish, birds, and other flying or swimming creatures inhabit the watery environments. This work began a couple of years ago as the artist witnessed her father declining from fatal heart disease. Themes emerge pertaining to loss, legacies, after life, and renewal. The paintings affirm nature’s regenerative powers and acknowledge our transient connection to the earth.
