Boise artist Karen Woods presents a new body of work based on her journeys to Wilder, Idaho. Her paintings put the viewer alongside her traveling by car, experiencing a rainstorm.
Karen Woods’ exhibition, The Way to Wilder, installed at the Boise Art Museum. In this latest body of work, Woods is introducing larger scale and a looser painting style, her aim is to give the viewer a feeling of foreboding in the midst of a storm with water covering the windshield and a palette that evokes dampness and cold. Woods has the ability to make commonplace more than we imagine.
If you haven’t had a chance see her exhibition, this is a small taste of a beautiful show. Hope you can take time to visit the museum and Stewart Gallery to see Karen’s paintings.
