Jolene Miner Gallery Show

February 29 @ 7:00 pm9:00 pm MST

Join us for the opening reception of “APPLE SKINS” by Jolene Miner @joleneminerart⁠Enjoy brand new paintings in person, complimentary snacks, good company & the Arts Station bar ⁠ARTIST STATEMENT:⁠I was a hesitant painter. I wanted so deeply to create something authentic and real that I often⁠got in my own way. I wanted it to be raw and true and full of richness, and those wants kept me⁠stuck in the thinking phase. I needed a way to dissolve my creative barriers, and I embarked on⁠a journey to find it.⁠I resolved to connect deeply to the intuitive part of myself and create a process that supported⁠an unselfconscious spontaneity. This meant embracing my vulnerabilities and what I felt⁠compelled to create without questioning it. I found myself wanting to explore a shape that⁠presented as something aware and vaguely human but with all the layers stripped away;⁠something that could express the feeling I wanted to explore but without the distractions of a⁠traditional subject. The simplicity left me free to act without hesitation. Layering and the⁠subtleties of glazing became key elements as I discovered I was drawn to translucency and an⁠element of emergence that played against bold lines. I immersed myself in the layering of rich⁠areas of color, thick strokes of white under glazes, repeating shapes from hand carved stamps⁠and linework created by activating watercolor pencil with medium. As I worked, I found that a⁠story naturally started to emerge.⁠Apple Skins is me removing my layers, peeling them away in a long, bouncy curl and⁠embracing what I find. Candid. Sweet. A little bit weird. It’s the fruits of a spontaneous creative⁠process. By embracing the exploration of my unselfconscious creative impulse, I use color,⁠line, pattern and texture through acrylics, inks, wax, watercolor pencils and mark making tools.⁠I layer and build. I remove and expose. I create a space to be vulnerable, to feel without⁠judgement and create without barriers.⁠I invite you to see it and feel it for yourself.⁠
