|APRIL: Skin Deep – Abstract Paintings by Jessica Kennedy and Alexander Eulert We are very excited to introduce two new artists, abstract painters Jessica Kennedy and Alexander Eulert. Both of them have developed unique ways of creating intensely layered and vibrantly colored paintings. Jessica Kennedy developed a technique where she partially masks and over-paints each of the many layers in her very organic paintings. Growth is the central theme in her work. It is an enigmatic, rich concept because it can be beautiful and positive as well as destructive and grotesque Her pieces are an elegant fusion of animals, the human body, and plant life. Eulert’s pieces are strikingly geometric, but just as in Kennedy’s pieces it seems to be possible to look deep into the painting. Delicate and dynamic string lines of paint buzz and trickle around often-bold bands of color, evoking rhythmical compositions, emotional states and natural phenomena. The cubical forms are suggestive of monoliths, pueblos, golden-‐green fields, unearthed inlaid armor from a Homeric poem—or, at times, technology and urban constructs. These are two artists who are dedicated to their craft; they manage to combine inventive techniques with intelligence and mindfulness.
