"Chimborazo" was selected by juror Jack Rasmussen for the 9th Annual All-Media Exhibition. The exhibition runs until March 3.
Opening Reception: Friday, February 9, 6 - 8 PM
"Chimborazo" is the title of this 48" x 60" oil on canvas by DC artist Freya Grand. Named after a volcano in central Ecuador, it is part of a series which grew out of travels in the Andes Mountains and in the Valley of the Volcanos.
Grand has painted landscape for the past seven years, having moved away from depictions of emotionally charged interiors and architecture in order to explore the forces of the natural world. These paintings generate not only a strong sense of place, but a sense of the mysterious forces operating behind what we take for reality.
