Paintings exhibited in the La Salle University Art Museum for the 2012 Exhibition, Jane Irish: War Is Not What You Think. Courtesy of Locks Gallery, Philadelphia, PA.
Jane Irish painted these landscapes on site during two trips to Vietnam. Irish brought evocative poems with her on her travels and used each as part of her creative process, allowing the poems to inspire her work. Poetry that informed the emotional and intellectual motifs for each painting was reproduced on the wall labels in the physical exhibition in the Art Museum, and is now transcribed along with the gallery images in this online exhibition.
