SLU Museum of Art: Friday, 18 January 2013

Opens Friday, Jan. 18; 6 - 8 p.m.

 The work of internationally renowned artist Edward Boccia will open on Friday, January 18 at the Saint Louis University Museum of Art. An opening reception begins at 6 p.m. The exhibition continues until March 3.

Edward Boccia: Figurative Expressionist includes an impressive range of the artist’s expressionist triptychs and powerful paintings that reflect his evolution from prolific artist to published poet. This exhibition includes a series of Boccia’s work that reflects his passion for the profound, his exploration of the biblical and his inspiration drawn from the German expressionist painter, Max Beckmann, as well as other masters of modernity such as Cezanne and Nolde.

Boccia’s art consists of “slashes of luminous colors or powerful streaks of dark, foreboding, abstract musings or slices of real life,” noted the St. Louis Beacon.
