Jivan Lee, “Wild Is the Wind,” oil, 48 x 48 inches

Accomplished painters Jivan Lee, Lynn Boggess, and Lui Ferreyra along with sculptor Nancy Lovendahl recently opened a great exhibition at Denver’s William Havu Gallery, to much anticipation. It’s filled with energy, passion, color, and texture, and you’ll unquestionably want to catch a viewing soon.

A great survey of works by Jivan Lee, Lynn Boggess, Lui Ferreyra, and Nancy Lovendahl is on view through November 11 at Denver’s William Havu Gallery. Among the works on view are 15 new paintings by Lee, featuring big sky weather, water, rock, and earth.

Jivan Lee, “The View from Blueberry Hill (diptych),” oil, 36 x 78 inches
Jivan Lee, “Laid Bare,” oil, 36 x 60 inches
Lui Ferreyra, “Polygon Window 1,” oil on canvas, 30 x 60 inches
Lynn Boggess, “7 August 2017,” oil on canvas, 54 x 46 inches

The works of the three painters display beautifully alongside one another. In particular, both Boggess and Lee delight in creating a thick impasto texture on their canvas, panel, or linen. The thick tapestry of groves, troughs, and ridges on the surface of their work creates an adventurous landscape in itself. Further, the work of all three displays a mastery of color, composition, and shape. However, despite the complementary nature of the three painters, each has a unique individuality and identity that shines through in each example on view.
