Artist and photographer Jocelyn Lee was hosted by Newcastle painter Jane Dahmen on the evening of Thursday, May 2 as part of Dahmen’s informative ongoing series of live interviews with artists called Talking Art in Maine: Intimate Conversations at Lincoln Theater in Damariscotta.
Lee, who recently moved to Maine and is using the Maine landscape as a backdrop for her nude portraits of women, embraces what others see as vulnerabilities, providing new perspectives on notions of beauty and sexuality and celebrating the cycles of life and death in all nature.
“We had an inspiring talk last night with photographer Jocelyn Lee, whose work deals with the nature of impermanence and honors aging women as well as the birth to death of all living things,” said Dahmen the following day. “As always, the audience was fully engaged, judging from the many far-ranging questions following the conversation.”
Dahmen’s next Talking Art in Maine event will be with artist Henry Isaacs and art historian Dan Kany on Thursday, May 30 at 7 p.m. at Lincoln Thetaer, 2 Theater St., Damariscotta. Talking Art in Maine events are always free.
