About the Show
In these works, there’s a sense of unrestricted movement at times, then, careful thoughtful brush strokes that are full and flowing. Each piece has unique enriching colors and tonality. Without a doubt, this series has immense inner life and, Price’s generous personal devotion to her subjects, gives the viewer a sense of renewed discovery, whether outside in nature or inside ourselves.
Artist Jacquelyne Price talks about her new show at the Nevada City Winery Gallery
As a landscape and figure painter, I explore the connection between the earth and the psyche, the view and the viewer. I aim to capture the essence of belonging in both nature and the human experience. In this way, my attempt is to create paintings that invite onlookers to connect with the view and simultaneously view their own existence as a beautiful and necessary process. The subjects of my paintings, big mountains in desolate landscapes and moody figures, are mirrors to what is as personal as it is universal. These bare giants of the earth and mind beg that we reflect on the denied parts of ourselves and the land we will one day return to.
Working in oil, I use large long handled brushes, a palette knife, and non-toxic lavender essential oil as a thinner. I paint loosely and favor gentle movement and texture to create peaceful and gestural lines. With broad strokes and layers, I simplify value planes in order to render objects abstract yet recognizable. With each painting I find the aim is to say more with less.
