The Sea Sorted It Out (Abstract Expressionist Style Oil Painting on Canvas)

2015

About

Square, abstract expressionist oil painting on canvas in pastel hues of blue, pink, and grey, with pops of yellow, fuchsia, teal, and orange. 40 x 40 x 2 inches unframed sturdy Aluminum stretcher bars, signed on reverse wire and d-rings for easy installation This square modern abstract expressionist oil painting was painted by Woodstock, NY based artist, Jenny Nelson, in 2015. The colorful abstract composition is completed in an expressionist style with loose and gestural brushstrokes in blue, yellow, pink, and calming pastels tones. The bright patches of colorful yellow, pink, and orange contrast beautifully against the subtle gray-blue background. Color is applied in light layers which is noticeable in the faint yet visible under tones of the painting. The abstract oil painting is the perfect touch of color in any decor and pairs especially well with a mid-century modern aesthetic. The square oil painting is unframed and has sturdy aluminum stretchers. The artist's signature is located on the back of the painting. Artist Statement: My work has always been anchored in drawing. I spent years drawing and painting from life. This instilled a strong sense of space and structure. At some point I became more interested in the negative space surrounding the objects I was observing and modifying the objects themselves. I began to organically develop an abstract language, but the sense of structure and organization remained constant in the painting. I apply paint in layers using palette knives, brushes and oil sticks. I initially draw loose gestures and a variety of spontaneous marks. Often traces of previous layers remain visible, allowing colors to interact in ways I could not have anticipated. This process leaves me feeling quite lost a lot of the time, and I have had to learn to become comfortable with that feeling. This sometimes builds to frustration, and I will scape off much of what was applied, but the result of doing this is often something wonderful that moves the painting forward. I view the painting process as a collaboration between myself and the materials. A conversation starts that has a beginning and an end, but everything in between is unpredictable. It seems at first some exciting things may show up but it’s important to disregard these first, too beautiful bursts, work over them, and develop something deeper from them. As the painting evolves, shapes and lines solidify, and I begin to see how the parts affect the whole. This way of layering, adding and subtracting, creates a history on the canvas. Shapes have a story to tell. Lines that have been obliterated and resurrected over and over again have an emotional charge. This process that started as a wild party ends up as a contemplative carefully edited composition, involving precise modifications, while hopefully leaving the life force in tact.
