White Lies She Told Me, Paintings by Sadé DuBoise is a new exhibit at Pushdot Studio, 2505 SE 11th Ave., Suite 104 in the Ford Building. Her work is on the walls October 8-November 26.
DuBoise is a self-taught painter experimenting primarily with acrylic and gouache born and raised in North Portland.
“White Lies She Told Meis a group of small paintings that address the personal and complex relationship I share with my mother,” DuBoise said.
“The central woman figure in these paintings is a portrait I have painted many times throughout my career, whom I call Umnia Vera, which means ‘faith faith,’ but more so, symbolizes the traversing and overcoming of deep emotional trauma, pain and adversity in my life. In a way, these paintings are self portraits.”
Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-5 pm. Free. See pushdotstudio.com.
