New Work: Colin Page & Jessica Lee Ives
Jessica Lee Ives use paint to explore and experience her adventure-filled relationship with the landscape. Her training at the small Sage School of Massage in Bend, Oregon, marked a turning point in her art career. In 2016, she studied anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology, all in the context of the outdoor athlete’s paradise of Central Oregon. As a lapsed en plein air painter in search of a new vision for her landscapes, she found it in this—the embodied experience of the natural world.
Coin Page distinguishes his work by his gestural brush strokes and command of light, which transforms seascapes and ordinary subjects into the spectacular. Color and pattern play significant roles in his well constructed compositions of harbor scenes, landscapes, and still lifes. His brilliant use of pattern and light turn his abstracted brush strokes, spatters, and marks into an incredible visual feast.
