Jennifer Shifflet

Jenn Shifflet's work is an exploration into the inner experience of time, the perception of space, and reflections of the natural world.  Rhythmic, atmospheric, and organic in nature, her paintings rest in the pause between movement and stillness, emergence and dissolution, where time may unfold slowly through subtle interplays of color and shifting light.

 

Shifflet sees the painting process as a balancing act of exercising control while also finding freedom in stepping out of the way enough to allow for chance and intuition to guide her.  In the repetition of brushstrokes, she finds the meditative possibility of absorption in the rhythm of the process. Each painting is slowly built up of many thin transparent glazes that become saturated color, depth of space, and luminosity over time. While embodying a symbolic relationship to the natural world, Shiffflet's paintings intend to remain ambivalent in their reference to a particular time, place, or relationship to gravity, allowing them to encourage the contemplative experience of personal resonance, recollection, or familiarity.
