The works in Chromascapes take a contemporary approach to the traditional landscape portrait, with influences from impressionism and modernism. Borman uses a putty knife solely, thus exaggerating simple shapes and color relationships.
“ I consider there to be two subjects in my work, landscape and color” she explains. “I have strived to balance between representation and abstraction in my works.” Her influences include Vincent Van Gogh and Barnett Newman.
A native Milwaukeean, Borman earned her BFA in painting at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in 2004. Since then she has exhibited locally and nationally. Please join Beki in the Gallery February 17th from 5-8 PM for the opening reception!
