Although formally trained with a MFA in painting,
Rickey Jewell Hohimer has used the styles of Van Gogh
and Gaughin to reach for the spontaneity and simplicity
of today's folk art.
Hohimer creates figures which are not photos of reality;
they are romantically stylized to encourage straightforward
emotional responses both to the colorful images and
to the situations in which they find themselves.
Each of Hohimer's paintings lays out a basic story
line to which viewers add their own details.
