Laura Hamje
In The Clouds
We are pleased to welcome back Laura Hamje for her second exhibition at Imogen. She brings a new series of nostalgic and contemplative oil paintings that depict the often dramatic light of the Pacific Northwest skies. Hamje of Seattle has found herself haunted for years by the rugged terrain of the lower Columbia region. Her imagery for this series largely focuses on iconic structural elements that appear to support the ever changing moody skies. She’s held a strong love and fascination for the area and as a result it’s become informative to her work, shaping her vision through our own landscape. Her powerful and evocative paintings have been shown in Seattle, Los Angeles, New York and many places in between. The exhibition will be on view September 12 – October 6.
