Alex Gallery is currently showing works by artist Mary Boochever. She returns to her hometown of Washington D.C. with her exhibition, Crocus Solis, which opened in May and can still be seen in the gallery through the summer.
The exhibit includes paintings and sculpture that reflect her ideals of meditation, minimalism, and color theory. Boochever draws from a range of cultures and traditions to frame her exploration of color in its role as a transformative agent. Her pieces reflect her interest and studies of color systems attached to socio-religious philosophies, which view color as a dynamic principle through which the life of the individual can be affected or transformed.
Guests are called to stop and engage with the painting whether in a self-reflective manner, a transcendent experience, or for an appreciation of Boochever’s mastery of color.
Mary Boochever studied in Munich, Germany at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste under Mac
Zimmerman, Günther Frühtrunk, and Paul Meyer-Speer. She has taught at the School of Visual Arts, Suffolk Community College, and at Lacoste School of the Arts in France. Boochever also was a guest lecturer at Yale University. She currently resides in Sag Harbor, New York.
Her book Monograph is available for purchase.
All are invited to come enjoy Boochever’s works.
Alex Gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
