James Lavadour: The Properties of Paint
February 2 – March 30, 2008
Jim Lavadour (Walla Walla) is a nationally recognized Oregon artist who is well known for his exploration of landscape as both inspiration and subject. Since 2000, Lavadour has focused intensely on the properties of paint, creating works that he describes as "intersections" between his better-known landscapes and his lesser-known abstract architectural structures. The exhibition examines the conceptual layers underlying Lavadour's work of the past 8 years.
