Jennifer JL Jones Solo Exhibition

Takes A Walk on the Wild Side

Gentle Wild, a solo exhibition of new works by nature-inspired abstract artist, Jennifer JL Jones, follows on the heels of her previous sold-out exhibition at New River Fine Art and pays homage to Flora and Fauna while juxtaposing serenity and calm with the raw, high-energy ferociousness found in Mother Nature.

 

(FT. LAUDERDALE) December 3, 2020 New River Fine Art is pleased to announce Gentle Wild, a solo exhibition by Internationally Acclaimed Contemporary Artist, Jennifer JL Jones running from Feb 3, 2022 March 3, 2022, in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

 

Gentle Wild explores what the artist sees as echoes of life. In Gentle Wild, artworks reveal abundant wildflowers, vibrant gardens, and ocean rhythms within the cherished and tranquil moments of external and internal reflections. Yet, Gentle Wild also portrays other powerful forces found in Nature a raw energy of untamed fierceness. Jones reveals brutal strength and power through bold and bright colors. She often describes her paintings asinner self-portraits, siting naturein its many layered, intangible forms as a guide and source of ethereal connection and engagement.

 

Jones says,I love the idea of natures energetic shifts.For example, when gazing out at the expanse of the ocean at times, the surface appears to be serene and peaceful yet underneath, it is an entire world of moving parts, an ecosystemfull of coral reefs,bioluminescence, deep sea, and all that is stirring unseen. We are all a part of and connected to this natural power, beauty, and chaos. Nature is just sounbelievably and undeniably balanced and magical.Think about the soft breeze that feels so good like a gentle caress on your skin and yet that same wind can become a mighty storm.In my work Im using all of this as my inspiration and tapping into thepassionate place I now find myself.Maturing hasbrought a sense of rooted calm as well as a renewed sense ofcuriosity equanimity andnurturing inner peace, while the outside world can sometimes appear chaotic.”

Gentle Wild, a 72 x 60-inch iconic painting summarizes the exhibition with its sweeping gestures of elegancy and the artists monumental build-up of sensual layers that give rise to a magical realm of blossoming extravagance. Explosions of color cascade over the left side of the composition, concealing the coveted shimmer of caressing ripples. Flowers, stems, petals, and foliage welcome the viewer into a world of tranquility.
