Artist Watch: Josephine Halvorson
I have been an enthusiastic fan of Josephine Halvorson’s paintings for a couple of years. There’s a link to her website on the right side of this blog (see “Artists”) if you’d like to view some of her work. Below is a short video of Josephine describing her approach to painting as being one in which she doesn’t try to illustrate things in her paintings, but rather she’s trying to make the things with paint that she observes over extended periods of time. That’s a delightful way of understanding. I’ve always found her choice of subject matter fascinatingly odd, and her orderly, yet unfussy paint handling is uniquely attractive.
