“over the years, the way i work has begun to take an incredible shift. this shift became apparent the moment i began to recognize how quickly time passes and how each moment is married with impermanence. every single thing that is familiar, comfortable, joyful, heartbreaking or painful is only temporary. that is the beauty in life; the little moments, captured or otherwise just a fleeting memory. my art is not precious. it acts as a mirror and captures who i am during that little lost moment. each piece maps out where i have been and informs the following piece and all the next pieces to come.” “i like to call my process of abstract painting for what it truly is. i am going into the unknown. once i stand face to face with a blank canvas, the moments between become a blur. painting is meditative and transcendent. i look at my work afterwards with wonder. i recognize my marks and color, because they are undoubtedly mine, but i know that there is an unknown ingredient that greets my process. the energetic exchange of stepping into the unknown forms a rhythm and the rest of it becomes my dance.” “every one of my senses has become observant. i bounce between the different stages of my creative process until i feel informed enough to begin another painting once again. i absorb colors on the street. i record the movement of water. i invite interesting conversations with others to form new ideas. not every moment of studio time is spent in the physical act of painting. but every moment is spent collecting data so that i can realize the foundation of the next piece.” we took a trip to a local boutique called tide lines, where jen’s art is displayed beautifully.
