Jennifer Gaughran - Artist's Statement

Home Gallery Biography Artist's Statement Contact

A San Diego native, I was lucky to grow up in the unique town of Ocean Beach as a member of an extemely creative and talented family. My artwork expresses my love for living color and texture, and the creation of the pieces develops much like the plants in my motherís garden grow. Each canvas surface is first sculpted with a thick base medium mixed with sand or rice. Articulation of the texture with thin layers of translucent color creates the finished piece. Like the living energy of a garden, the soul of the painting evolves organically from the surface Iíve created, the colors that speak to me that day, and the way the light interacts.
