Featured Artist, Jennifer Rugge uses natural hand mixed mineral paints on wood, her show ‘Reclaiming Our Ancestral Roots’, explores the world of the Ancients, intertwining the mystery surrounding their art, techniques, and early language roots in signs and pictographs.
Here Jennifer shares some of her thoughts on her paintings and fascinating process,
“The energy of art emerges from a deep yearning within to express awareness of the beauty already inherent in our surroundings. Nature in life inspires and ignites my passion to share the value of art through the collecting and mixing of natural minerals into oil paints and applying these to paper and wood surfaces. Also, ancient roots of languages and Art influence my work”
Jennifer’s work reflects her in depth approach and meticulous worldwide research. She has studied, exhibited, taught and sold her art over the world from California to Virginia to Italy and Vienna, Austria. She visited the sacred churches of Italy, the Jugenstil of Vienna and the villages of such artists as Monet, Klimt, and Hundertwasser. While living in Europe, she studied ancient Italian art techniques which included fresco painting, illuminated writing, and gold leaf applications. Recently, she visited the outback in Australia to study the Rock and Cave Art of the Aborigines.
