CONVERSATION “For me, art is about sharing beauty, wonder, insight. It is a ‘conversation.’ Color, form, and the arrangement of shapes can create compelling, non-literal images which evoke memories of nature, sexuality, and identity. My work is a kind of emotional Rorschach test, as it invites the viewer to decipher its meaning. I intentionally stride the line between abstraction and reality enticing you to enjoy the mystery of visual abstraction.” In Jacqueline Barnett: Conversation, her solo exhibition since a 2016 Museum of Northwest Art retrospective, New York-born painter Jacqueline Barnett brings a dozen new large abstract canvases and six smaller works affirming her primary role as senior modernist painter in the Pacific Northwest. Building on her childhood exposure to Abstract Expressionism and subsequent studies at Stanford, Barnett expresses a tension between shapes, colors and imagery growing out of nature and human anatomy.
