The Jung Center Gallery presents Joan Laughlin: The Forest and the Trees and Bill Frazier: The View From Here opening reception
Artists Joan Laughlin and Bill Frazier find inspiration from Houston, the city they call home. However, it is not the skylines, cityscapes or concrete that directly influence their work; rather, it is the separation from nature and the ways that nature seeps into our urban landscape that inform their work.
Joan’s small, extremely detailed work is featured in The Forest and the Trees, her exhibition in the Main Gallery. Joan uses the forms and lines found in the natural world to make paintings that hover between realism and abstraction. This vacillation mirrors our tenuous, often conflicted, relationship with Nature.
In the Side Gallery, Bill Frazier’s The View From Here features recent paintings that examine landscape as image and language, and explore our shared cultural distance between landscape and nature.
This exhibit will be on display September 3-29.
