We are excited to present Chromascapes, a collection of abstract landscapes by Milwaukee artist Beki Borman. This exhibition will open Friday, February 17 from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. Come meet the artist, enjoy a reception, and of course check out these amazing works!
Chromascapes takes a contemporary twist to the traditional landscape portrait, with influences from impressionism and modernism. Borman’s technique is to use a putty knife solely (no brush!), thus exaggerating simple shapes and color relationships. The artist considers both landscape and color to be subjects in her paintings, so there is a balance between representational and abstract style. This approach invites the viewer to appreciate the beauty and interpret their own meaning of the work.
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.
