Wandering through mountains and water invites the viewer to stroll, dwell, float, embrace tranquility in the calmness of high mountains and rippling water from mountain wells.
In this series of oil paintings Jeanne Boden finds inspiration in the principles of Asian art and philosophy, which she has been studying throughout her life. Rather than using the format of the traditional handscroll with its linear sequence leading the viewer step by step through a landscape, the artist created five scenes that are connected and disconnected at the same time. Like a matrix each of the five scenes opens a 'door' to the hidden landscape behind it, providing the viewer with a whole universe to disappear in. The emptiness in between powerful blue brushwork offers an escape route from human concerns.
