The Florence County Museum is pleased to announce an exhibition of works by artist Jim Boden. The exhibit, Out of Paradise, opens Thursday, August 29 at 6 p.m.
Out of Paradise is comprised of works created by Boden during the past ten years. Boden is Professor Emeritus at Coker University, Hartsville, SC, where he taught from 1999 to 2016.
Boden’s lush and darkly toned paintings are figurative, frequently using the human body as a means to express personal and cultural tensions. The exhibition’s title is taken from the artist’s most recent series, which depict modern man and woman in an ambiguous, sometimes surrealistic landscape, evoking biblical references to Adam and Eve’s exit from Eden.
Out of Paradise will be on display in the FCM Waters Gallery from August 29 through December 13. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
