I created this painting by layering transparent inks and dyes with rice paper over canvas. It is an exploration of light, movement and color. After hiking near a waterfall, I was inspired by the cascading movement of the water, shimmering light and color reflections. This painting is my interpretation of a waterfall. The painting is coated with art 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.
