Jennifer JL Jones embarks on an inspiring journey in this new series of original paintings for her upcoming solo exhibition. Each stroke is a reflection of her life of self-exploration and a celebration of the natural landscape. Through brushwork that employs multiple layers of abstraction and a refined glazing technique, Jones creates rich, organic patinas that evoke universal emotional and physical connecting points for the observer, exploring the seemingly contradictory theories of nature both as corporeal reality and intangible spirituality. Works that, at first, appear to be composed of seemingly random abstraction, are metaphors for the artist’s self-exploration and celebration of the natural life cycle. Thus, inspiring one to question if it is the destination or the journey, nature or nurture, beginning or end, landfall or departure?
