The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Fuller Rosen Gallery is excited to present After Boucher, a solo exhibition of new and recent work by Molly Jae Vaughan on view from September 11 – October 24, 2021. 

After Boucher features paintings, drawings and lithographs based on the works of 18th-century French painter, draftsman and printmaker François Boucher. The Rococo master’s portfolio takes on new meaning through the re-translations by Vaughan, a Seattle-based artist and educator originally from the United Kingdom. The technical achievements witnessed in the original works of Boucher — composition, perspective, line, form and color — are not only immaculately replicated by Vaughan, but transmogrified into stunning visions of queer resplendence. Baroque figures, furniture and environments are infused with transgender bodies, process color palettes and mythological characters. A hand-painted, pink Rococo dress depicting scenes and figures inspired by the works of Boucher will take center stage as the sculptural belle of the ball. After Boucher will run through October 24, 2021.

Come for an in-person opening reception on Saturday September 11, 2021 from 5-8 pm.
