This painting is about creating a balance between positive and negative space. It was done with inks and dyes on rice paper over panel board. It is coated with a UV protectant to preserve the intense hues and art resin to protect and intensify the colors. The work is on cradled masonite board and ready to hang. Signed on front and back.

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.
