Boz Schurr - The Prison in the Prism
James S. Murray gallery presents “The Prison in the Prism”, work by Oregon artist Boz Schurr. The show is a body of work created around the visible spectrum as discovered and developed by Isaac Newton in 1672.
Schurr believes this “arbitrary classification – yellow, orange, blue, etc. is very similar to how we catalog our thoughts and emotions- happy, sad, afraid, etc.” The gallery has two of Schurr’s large mixed media paper works on display but be sure to take a careful look at the smaller prints on display as well to get a real sense of what the artist means when he says he uses, “humor, rainbows and faces to suggest that we are all connected to each other.”
Boz Schurr studied painting and drawing at Oregon State University and the University of Hawaii at Manoa. He is an instructor of fine art and a gallery manager. His artwork will be in the James S. Murray Gallery from October 22nd until November 15th.
The gallery is open to the public Monday through Friday, 8am – 4pm.
