Jen Mann's Chromatic AtrophyErotica // Thursday, 28 Jun 2012
"This new series of works explores color and texture, and the deterioration or disintegration of images into an abyss. Working in layers and exhibiting much more freedom in her brushstrokes, these emotional and spontaneous paintings are a great departure from Jen Mann's past works." In her past series entitled "Subconscious Vista" (below) Jen explores themes of nature, spiritualism, fantasy and discovery. A strong narrative carries throughout the series as dream worlds unravel, with each character representing their own tale. These heroes are paired with crystals, flowers and bird spirit guides to cross into landscapes of the subconscious, which are consumed with magic and cosmic power.
