Altamira Fine Art in Scottsdale, Arizona, is excited to be displaying a solo exhibition for a plein air master, which includes beautiful landscapes in his signature style that are sure to induce pride in the American Southwest.
Over a dozen new works will compose a one-man show at Altamira Fine Art in Scottsdale, Arizona. Titled “Our Land,” the exhibition features the signature vast skies, storm clouds, expressive and thick paint, and bold color of artist Jivan Lee.
The works of Lee have long been collected for their life, movement, and light, which will be on display during “Our Land.” The exhibition will open on February 6 and continue through February 18. Speaking of his inspiration, Lee suggests, “Nature is a great equalizer, modulator, consolation, and teacher. You can’t see a New Mexican sunrise or be lost in a fog in Maine and emerge the same. Nature changes us. It isn’t always pleasant; sometimes it’s harrowing and even terrifying. But it’s always true, always there, always utterly as it is. And, in some form, it’s always available to us all. I believe deeply in the healing, transformative power of nature. It’s a big part of what inspires my work and drives my evolution as an artist. And so it’s my hope that this group of paintings will bring moments of power, beauty, and solace back from the wilderness of Our Land and into daily life.”
A reception will be held at the gallery during the “Western Spirit” ArtWalk on Thursday, February 9, from 6:30-9 P.M. To learn more, visit Altamira Fine Art.
