About Jeanne

Jeanne Jones is a painter from Houston, Texas and she works from her studio at The Silos located within the campus of Sawyer Yards in the Arts District of Houston. In May 2018, she was accepted into the Advanced Studio Block Program of the Glassell School of Art at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston which provides an on-campus studio and weekly critiques by Glassell faculty, Core Program Fellows, local art curators and gallerists. Influential artists for her include Matisse, Bonnard and Joan Mitchell. She is interested in exploring the intersections of line and color through her techniques of pouring paint while using other media and interesting mark making to create the image she wants to convey. Nature and particularly flowers are a frequent subject of inspiration allowing her to play with ideas of combining representation and abstraction in her work. It is her expressive use of form and color that lures you into her paintings.

I make abstract paintings about my relationship to the natural world.  My work explores the sensory experience of being among plant environments whether it be a single flower or a wild, untamed field.  Each has its own relevance.  The work is about the experience and formal properties of the paint and the application of the paint on the surface. I began making paintings inspired by the natural world several years ago when I realized it allowed me to tap into my emotional and spiritual thoughts in a way I had not found with any other subject matter.  As I explored more deeply the idea of nature representing our internal thoughts and the need to look to nature as a source of reflection, I found that not relying on representation allowed me to express a deeper range of emotion.
