Patricia Rovzar Gallery is honored to present “Vistas”, a collection of recent paintings by Northwest artist Z.Z. Wei, and a preview of selected works by the artist to be exhibited in 2018 at the Booth Museum in Cartersville, GA. A reception for the artist will be held on First Thursday, September 7th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. The exhibition will continue through September 30th.
“Vistas” includes paintings of the Palouse and the Puget Sound, and pays special homage to the landscape that has profoundly changed and molded Z.Z. Wei’s life. Wei’s ability to depict beauty in what others might see as decay or abandonment is extraordinary, and these works focus on sharing his observations: whether it be the allure of a dilapidated truck, an abandoned dwelling, a meandering road, undulating fields of golden wheat, or the long shadows cast upon the roadside by tall trees. Wei's distinct style, energetic brushwork, and saturated colors are all a brilliant reminder of his unique ability to not only move paint on canvas, but to move those that view the work as well.
