“Why Art? ‘‘(oil on linen), by Joanne Tarlin, in her show “Posthumously Blooming,’’ at Galatea Fine Art, Boston, July 3-July 28.
The gallery says:
“Joanne Tarlin celebrates her father's life and works in her exhibition "Posthumously Blooming". He was a novelist, among other pursuits, living among poets, painters, musicians and intellectuals; the book was not published and was secreted away until after his death. Entitled The Artist's Life, the book has inspired his daughter's work towards the romantic, moody and atmospheric. Flowers and dissolving text excerpts wind in and out of the surface and reflect the artist's connection with mortality.’’
