Halvorson is an artist based in Massachusetts. She is Professor of Art
and Chair of Graduate Studies in Painting at Boston University.
Combining acute attention to detail and an insistence on painting from
life, Halvorson makes oil paintings on site. She finds objects in their
environment that she feels “look back” at her by revealing traces of
human activity. Working directly from perception, and often completing
her paintings in a single session, Halvorson’s process allows for a
prolonged closeness and shared experience with her chosen subjects
and the human quality of their tools, their graffiti, their wear and tear.
This collaboration between artist, materials, and environment forges a
painting that serves as a record of the artist’s conversation with the
world and a testament to time spent.
