My intent for this painting was to depict soft filtered light reflecting deep into water. I used pinks, and orange hues interwoven with blues, teals and purples to create the impression of filtered light entering water. I created this painting to be hung vertical, but it works in any direction, and can be hung horizontal if preferred. My creative process was layering transparent inks and dyes on rice paper over canvas. It is coated with resin to enhance the hues and give it a glass effect.

Getting to Know Jill

J. Concetta received her MA in Design from the University of Minnesota where she studied color theory under great artists. One professor, Marian-Ortolf Bagley, often said that a painting must work in all directions to be truly unified. So J. would test works by hanging them upside down, and in each direction. J. sold some paintings in Minneapolis after graduation, but went on to manage the ink and paint department of an animation studio. The intense hues of the inking technique, along with Paul Klee’s use of transparent color, strongly influence her current body of work.
