Bo Bartlett in Oxford American Magazine
1993 Pew Fellow, painter Bo Bartlett is the subject of a video piece posted online March 8, 2012 by Oxford American magazine.
"A realist painter with a deliciously surreal touch, the Columbus, Georgia-born artist was a protégé and life-long friend of Andrew Wyeth. His haunting and epic tableaux evoke a Hopper-like sense of longing and mystery combined with a Lynchian-cocktail of menace, beauty, and stranger-than-fiction reality.
A natural traveler with an entire planet of subject matter to pick from, it might surprise some to learn that Bartlett chooses to spend several months each year painting in the modest Columbus, Georgia, home he grew up in—to paint, no less, in the very bedroom that was his as a child. But it is in fact the place where Bartlett goes each winter, and where some of his most vital work is born."
