Jim Neidhardt was our guest on Art Focus. He has a show of photographs up called Museum at Blackfish. Neidhardt captures the museum ritual of photographing the art experience rather than actually having one. Or maybe the intimate relationship we have with our cameras is deeply imbedded in whatever art experience we have, for better or worse.

Charles A. Hartman Fine Art presented Holly Andres for their April exhibition. She was our guest and told us about "The Fall of Spring Hill." The show continues her examination of a personal feminine narrative. In large-scale, lush color images, the artist ponders the brevity of childhood, the fleeting nature of memory, and female introspection. As in her previous work, this new series is concerned with revisiting, recreating and preserving history, the interweaving of fact and fiction and finding a place in which biography and fictitious narration come together. Andres choreographs all her tableaus - she dresses her people and puts it all together.

Painter Henk Pander on His Life and Work

Categories:

program date: 
Tue, 03/15/2011

Guest host Tom Cramer interviews artist Henk Pander about his life and work.

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art opened a major exhibition of the art of Henk Pander on January 29, 2011. It surveys the range of Pander’s oil paintings, watercolors, drawings, posters, and theatrical designs from the late 1950s to 2010. On view through March 27, 2011, it is the most comprehensive exhibition ever mounted of this important Oregon artist’s work.

Henk Pander has lived in Oregon for 45 years, but to this day describes himself as a “reluctant immigrant” from his native Holland. He was born in Haarlem in 1937 and studied painting at the Rijksacademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam from 1956 to 1961. Arriving in Portland in 1965, he observed the cross currents of the American cultural scene of the 1960s with the fascination yet detachment of a European émigré.

In the decades since, Pander has maintained his cultural double vision: he documents and interprets American technology, materialism, topography, and disaster in paintings and drawings that recall the grand tradition of Dutch painting extending back to Rembrandt and Frans Hals. At the same time, drawing upon his childhood memories in Holland and periodic visits to his home country, he frequently paints European scenes and subjects as well. His painted narratives range from his memories of Nazi-occupied Holland to the NASA space center at Cape Canavrel, from the Portland creative scene to the burning of the New Carissa off the Oregon coast.
