Piece description from the artist

Just as musical notes can evoke images, the marks of a visual language may call up the sound, for example, of a forest. One need only look to the Zen artists, their love of the natural world and their ability to bring the spirit of that world to life with a simple brush stroke; to understand the notes of an image that is spare but truly felt. A place reveals itself as a landscape distilled by memory, and that memory brings with it a stirring of the senses.

About Iris Osterman

Framingham, MA

Iris Osterman grew up in New York and currently lives in Framingham, Massachusetts. She graduated from Boston University in 1972, and earned her M.F.A. from The American University in 1977.

Osterman's reference to objective reality and an expressive use of line have remained consistent in her art-making process. For Iris, the line carries the message in each piece, describing what is seen and felt; it is weighty, energetic and even ethereal at times. She also maintains a restricted palette, which allows her to focus less on color and more on linear forms, composition, and contrast.

Iris' paintings have been featured at The "Bowery Gallery": in New York City, "The Cambridge Art Association": in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and"The Danforth Museum": in Framingham, Massachusetts, among many others.
