Justin L’amie: Midnight Florist
PDX Contemporary Art, Portland, OR - To Feb 24
Influenced by the principles of Northwest Mystics, Morris Graves and Mark Tobey, Northwest native, Justin L’Amie, draws from the wealth of natural resources that characterize the region. His imaginative Midnight Florist paintings depict variations within the familiar world of plants and insects that exist within the mind of the artist, pointing to a spiritual realm versus a logical one. L’Amie was selected for an upcoming solo show at the Morris Graves Museum of Art. In 2016, he was also awarded a residency at the Morris Graves Foundation.
