DESCRIPTION

The gallery will present its first exhibition of the paintings of Marc Bohne. Based in the Pacific Northwest, Bohne visits and then revisits landscapes of particular resonance to him from California to Montana. For this reason, he explains, “I could never be a plein-air painter…it is important for me to process my perceptions, which often need time to form.” Acknowledging “metaphysical threads” to the natural world, Bohne distills these sensations into structured compositions. The objective, he suggests, is to “see deeper into the layers of the landscape, uncovering its harmonies and dissonances, the physical and spiritual tensions.” His oil paintings on panel are not detailed renderings of a place but rather what Emerson called, “a correspondence of the outward world to the inward world of thought and emotions.” For Emerson, “nature is a language and every new fact one learns is a new word.” For Marc Bohne, that language is translated into form, texture and tone.
