Jennifer Moses: Work from Wyoming
Professor Jennifer Moses is exhibiting in the new Kingston Project Space, Boston, MA August 30-October 1. The exhibition titled Work from Wyoming, is inspired by her 2017 participation in the Jentel Artist Residency in rural Banner, Wyoming. Moses brought with her materials that were new to her process including Flashe Paint (a thick, water-based paint), Silver/Black Traditional Chinese Ink, and various kinds of paper. The meditative process of spreading the Flashe into defined shapes and the immediacy of the ink, along with the colors reflected in the changing hues of the Big Horn Mountains, inspired Moses' latest body of work. The landscape realized itself in her paintings both directly and obliquely. Many of the interlocking shapes of these pieces stand in contrast to the openness of sky and rolling hills. They collide and lock like a puzzle, but like the Wyoming landscape there is also open space. The quirky and more implausible forms refer to snow formations carved by a wind strong enough to remold the hardened snow banks.
