OBSERVATIONS Fifteen years of contemporary impressionist landscape painting led me to this project. I was looking for a way to get to the heart of the expression without being so tied to artistic representationalism. In fact, my determination to go beyond those limitations is what truly led me to an exploration of the abstract images derived from everyday experience and observations. The sacred time spent with someone very close to me during his final days brought an acute awareness of my own aging, growth, and life changes. Travel and yoga studies brought new ideas for imagery in the exploration of this theme. The common interests were the effects of time and circumstances on humans and structures, including everything from ancient rock formations to architectural elements. The process of creating these images begins with photojournaling, wherever I happen to be. Great pleasure is taken in composing abstract images through the lens of the camera, drawing upon my experience as a painter and costume designer, to create arrangements that are aesthetically satisfying, and contain some personal meaning. The imagery is further developed through digital experimentation to create additional visual interest and expressive quality. My current vision includes long term work within this mode, to fully develop the emerging concepts. It has been such a rich experience already, yet there is so much left to explore. As life changes, this project will be along for the ride. Jennifer Kane
