Jennifer Blalack - Artist Statement

“My purpose is to bring beauty, pleasure and interest to the beholder. I like the way paint goes on its own journey where I am often the passenger and in some sense a tourist being enlightened by my guide, the unfolding work. I use many layers in my paintings because each layer is transformative and full of surprises, for me and hopefully for the beholder. My work has been characterized as intuitive because I do not begin with an end in sight but rather begin at the beginning and work to discover the end.” A technological careerist and artist, Jennifer has studied for several years under the guidance of her sister, an art lecturer in Australia.
