About the Artist:

Jess Barnett is a self-taught artist and has been painting since 2004. She counts among her influences the Color Field movement, the region of New England, Japanese minimalist painters, Dale Chihuly, Franz Kline, and Francis Bacon. A former member of the Fort Point Artists Community (FPAC), she has exhibited in a variety of locations in the Boston and Cambridge area, including the Beacon Hill Art Walk, the SoWa Art Walk, Achilles, the FPAC Gallery Art at 12, the Lilypad in Inman Square, Cambridge Common, Bricco, and Harbor Art Gallery, among others, as well as the Larkin Gallery in Provincetown. Jess took lessons in glassblowing at Diablo Glass School in Roxbury, MA, and plans to eventually pursue that further in addition to painting.

In addition, for five years she served as one of two arts editors for Printer's Devil Review, an online literary and arts journal (http://pdrjournal.org).

Artist Statement:

"The brighter the light, the darker the shadow." ~ Carl Jung

Jess Barnett explores the duality of personality within her imagery. Since 2004, her artwork has transformed from a Franz Kline-influenced stark use of color (black, gray, white, and red) to the use of more fluid, colorful, flora-esque marks. Themes include longing, distance in relationships, loss, and remembrance. She often uses painted or drawn words within paintings to emphasize these themes. In her latest pieces, she incorporates hand stitching with colored thread, representing rebirth and redemption.

Works include: paintings involving thread, yarn, and other similar materials; colored pencil drawings; spray-painted objects, using Mason jars, vases, and pieces of wood; glass objects; cards

Materials include: acrylic, gouache, watercolor, and spray paint; pencils; cotton balls; rose petals; window screen; coral; leaves; cosmetics, including lipstick, eyeliner, and eyeshadow; pills; fireplace ashes; charcoal; yarn; thread

Influences include: Andrew Wyeth; Jesus Rafael Soto; Josiah McElheny; Franz Kline; Francis Bacon; Howard Hodgkin; Dale Chihuly; Stephen Gammell; Japanese minimalist artists; street and magazine advertising
