In Jennifer J.L. Jones’ abstract expressionist take on the world, there is beauty all around, even in the darker places that awaken our sense of danger. Her newest series, Luminous Grace, expands her vision of nature-as- teacher to bring us a fearless exploration of life’s deepest mysteries.
While her technique remains the same---layers of paint and other media burnished to an otherworldly glow---this series projects a bolder, more authoritative tone even as it soothes and comforts with its ethereal beauty.
“These paintings are a little different energetically,” says Jones. “I’ve started them with larger gestures, bigger brush strokes, and I’m playing more with the colors. With this series I felt open and fearless.”
Drawing inspiration from her travels as well as from elements of nature glimpsed through her studio windows, Jones plumbs the depths of light and beauty, interpreting
them through her own unique vision and paying attention to the ephemeral moments that underscore the importance of mindfulness amid an ever-changing world.
