Ecos de Inhotim by Bob Nugent
September 23 - November 4, 2017
Opening Reception — Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 6-8 p.m.
*Artist will be present.
For his seventh solo show, California artist Bob Nugent presents a diverse breadth of new paintings and works on paper and veneer. Ecos de Inhotim is a continuation of the artist’s impressions of Brazil and the Amazon River Basin, an ecosystem which he has explored through mixed media for over thirty years.
A skilled draftsman in watercolor, oils, ink, pencil, printmaking and other media, Nugent’s studio work and research draw inspiration from his ventures through the rainforest, as he visits the Amazon region of Brazil two to three times a year. Rather than depicting scenes in the jungle, Nugent expresses and connects the ambiguity of his drawn forms to the natural mystery and remoteness of Amazonian life. As a frequent visitor, he maintains relationships with many of the Brazilian natives of Amazonia, allowing him to better understand the land and landscape of the region as well as current issues facing the inhabitants.
Hours: Tuesday - Saturday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
