Carol Boarman – Mavris Cultural Center – Dec. 31, 2003

Boarman's golden-hued images, both abstract and angel, recall myth and fantasy. One angel's face is delicately pink and rutty with detail, while the body and wings are formed in raised chunks of pearlized paint. There is a feminine storybook quality to the ethereal manner in which the characters in Boarman's works hold their gaze and grace. A sense of abandonment and satisfaction is relayed here albeit in the framework of these soft, comforting pieces. The overt expression of freedom in her painting is quite a release from the formality and structure of her Eastern Orthodox icons currently on view at the Indianapolis Art Center. Through Jan. 31, 2004; 317-917-9999. - Mary Lee Pappas
