A River Runs Through It: New Paintings by Jeff Olson

The central theme of my work has always lain within the primacy of the brushstroke in the process of painting. It is in essence the evidence of the physical interaction of the artist with the “stuff of this world,” an evidence of life.


The structure of these paintings is taken from the landscape, both the natural and man-made occurrences: ancient stream beds, worn paths, stone fences, and canyon walls.


At a fundamental level it is about transformation. The process of painting becomes an echo of the traces left from a story of living imprinted on the land.

“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it.” Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories

Sara Everett has been engaging in color play and teasing the limits of creation versus destruction. Rich layers of stain on reclaimed wood have been carved into, and paintings on canvas have been shredded to transform into sculpture. Each stands alone, but there is strength in the groupings.
