My Guest Star for today is Jim Bove. I first saw Jim's work in Exhibition in Print and was reminded of it at the ECU symposium over the weekend. I am drawn to Jim's soft, simple shapes and his beyond minimal drawing and surface design. The pieces are fabricated in copper and painted with car paint. Some drawings are silverpoint or goldpoint, a process in which marks are made with silver or gold. I find this work to be sensitive and absolutely lovely.
