While creating this modernist mixed media painting, Jodi says her thoughts were on the many hikes she has done. "I have come across many intersections, some giving the feeling of exploration or maybe daring me, while others were mapped out with description." The artwork balances loose exploration with warm structured forms, intimating rock cliff faces and desert foliage.
In 1999, Jodi Dann seized the opportunity to become a full-time painter. Today, her paintings read like hazy memories of imagined faraway places. The compositions are abstract, but possess strong architectural elements, recalling bridges, arches, and doorways. Each piece retains an overall sense of place without prescribing a location, allowing the viewer to form an individualized connection with the work. Jodi paints from her cozy studio on her property in Oregon while listening to a variety of music on Pandora. She doesn’t feel the need to strive for perfection in her work. “Life isn’t perfect,” says Jodi. “Why force a painting to be?”
