Description

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel this lecture. It may be rescheduled in the future.


Artist Josephine Halvorson gives a lecture about her work.

Halvorson makes paintings on-site, face to face with an object in its environment. Often no more than an arm's length away, she detects variations in texture, light, and temperature, transcribing these perceptions through the medium of paint. The result is an intimate portrait of the object, capturing both a natural likeness as well as the often unseen or overlooked character of her chosen subject.

Her work has appeared in many solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. This past spring, Halvorson made a body of work in Matanzas, Cuba, which was exhibited as part of the Havana Biennial. Her work is represented by Sikkema Jenkins and Co. in New York and has been written about widely in a variety of art publications. Halvorson is also a teacher and holds the position of Professor of Art and Chair of Graduate Studies in Painting at Boston University.

This lecture is part of the visiting artist program funded and sponsored by the Painting+ Drawing Program.
