Jennifer paints with vibrant hues in multiple layers, capturing her exuberance and fascination with color and texture. She has developed her own style through many years of experimentation, adventurously exploring a wide range of materials: wood, wire, canvas, and aluminum, which lent to the influence of surface material in her Gravity Wave series of paintings.
In this entirely new body of work, Jennifer tackles “Order & Chaos.” A dichotomy present throughout her work, she defines animated brush strokes into geometric hand-cut wooden pieces and funnels free-flowing streams of paint into orderly lines atop canvases. This juxtaposition is not only highlighted in the varying techniques that she employs in an individual piece but also comparatively from one work to another. Her work highlights both the organization and disorganization of the color palette, presenting a more literal interpretation of “Order” and “Chaos.”
Many of these works reside at the new home of BluePrint CT in Bantam. The artist’s work is also featured in private collections around the world, including the boutique hotel Fort Point Marriott Residence Inn, Boston.
In addition to producing work for her collection, Jennifer has also recently started HUE Studio: an open studio concept intended to allow for greater inclusivity and to promote experimentation in the world of abstract art. Lessons are given in her bright home studio, where she teaches the very palette knife and drip painting techniques she uses in her own work. The beauty of HUE Studio is that no two works are exactly the same. The end result is completely determined by the artist’s imagination and color choices.
