Following her 2018 completion of two major paintings commissioned for the new Broadway Tower in downtown Portland, Lucinda Parker presents Snow and Ice: Coin of the Realm. Guiding this body of the work is Parker’s question, “What is of the most value in the Northwest?” She concludes that it is snow and ice, which changes its own shape, and that of the land it touches, as it provides pristine water in an increasingly limited supply. Parker’s latest images continue to explore the Northwest’s mountainous landscapes and what shapes them. She builds energetic forms in a thousand shades of white, combined with exuberant color, from small, intimate gouaches to large scale works on canvas. This exhibition coincides with a retrospective at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in Salem, OR, titled Force Fields, and the publication of a monograph by Roger Hull of the same title.
