This painting depicts a city reflecting on water. My intention was to create a glowing effect to show the energy of a city at sunset. To achieve this, I intentionally used contrasting high intensity hues.  The painting extends on the sides. It is coated with resin to give it a glass effect, protect the surface and enhance the hues.

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.
