Jean Herman’s exhibit “Near and Far’ takes the viewer into interpretations of Denver, reflecting the unique light and the shadows it creates.  It expresses the shapes of city buildings that are abstract yet one intuitively recognizes them.  The exhibit also includes work then interprets the same intense light, color and shadows found throughout the Colorado landscape. .  She has especially been fascinated by the intense colors in Southwestern Colorado. She interprets that intense Colorado light can make rock faces glow red in the sunlight.  

The “Far” part of the show incorporates works from Jean’s travels to Germany and Japan. These places have an entirely different feel and the light in both places is muted by the humidity and mist. They are also ancient places and the feel of these places cannot be interpreted with the vibrancy of Denver and Colorado. Jean curates this exhibit to show the intriguing juxtaposition of vibrant Western Colorado versus the settled places in Europe and Japan
