About the Art
What the artist saysIn this mini series, I explore my own artistic guardrails. In past works, I allowed my works to exist freely and independently. This time I wanted limitation, challenging containment through blocks of white, juxtaposing values of light and dark to hide and highlight beauty and chaos.
Why we like itJennifer’s layers are incredibly versatile: they work together to hide pigment in their nooks and crannies even on her oversized canvases.
Where we hang itThis canvas packs a punch: hang this front and center for maximum effect.
About the Artist
Jen SandersSaint Louis native and self-taught artist Jen Sanders has been exploring her creativity in painting for several years. By day, she works in the field of design as a User Experience designer and although she flexes her creative muscles in her day job, software design can be bound by the limitations of the company stakeholders and the users. For this reason, Jen is drawn to the limitless creativity of abstract expressionism. She considers herself a “maker”, specifically drawn to painting. Her evolution into abstract art allows her to gain new experiences and explore her creativity - approaching every blank canvas with optimism and excitement. The range of her talent and willingness to try new things is continuously evolving and expanding up in every new painting.
