Artist
Jodi Dann Beavercreek, Oregon

Seventeen years ago, 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 jazz or French music. 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?”

    Artist Statement

    Acrylic is my medium, abstract is my passion! I approach a painting with a palette knife using quick strokes. I love the spontaneity of abstract. It's a great feeling to connect with a color, while adding layers of paint or texture as I flow through the painting. I am enamored with portals that lead to new places. Inspiration comes from just showing up in my studio, or maybe a color, a word I hear, a shadow, or a reflection has given me a spark. I like imperfection in my paintings; it leads me to that place between abstract and realism.
