Jeanette’s paintings are carefully observed and abstracted reflections on the natural world, with a focus on light and landscape. Her painting practice is meditative, situating observation as an act of deep attention and appreciation. Jeanette’s work is also rooted in a belief that all painting is necessarily abstraction, to an effect that is both appealing and unsettling. Viewers may recognize familiar objects or settings, feel attracted to a piece’s color and geometry, but also find the flattened spaces and heightened colors a bit uncanny. These paintings distill the singular quirks of their subjects, and relish the painterly richness of color, brushstroke, and composition.
