Artist / Personal Statement
I have been painting the dress for over a decade. Two years ago, while on a boat with my husband, I placed it in the ocean. The shape and texture of the fabric, the quality of light and the differences between wet and dry surfaces was visually compelling and inspired my most recent work.
Upon reflection, the dress revealed itself as a metaphor. Due to an unexpected spiritual experience in my life, the worn and well-traveled dress represents renewal by light and water.
Accomplishments / CV
Jean is an award-winning artist, holding a Master of Fine Arts degree in painting from Boston University College of Art. She has exhibited widely, received grants for residencies and been published most recently in AcrylicWorks5 and Studio Visit Magazine. She currently teaches at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Her work has been selected to be included in exhibitions by numerous leaders in the art world such as Alan Weinberg, director of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and Clifford Ackley, curator at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Jean's paintings have also been juried and chosen by well-known artists such as William Bailey, Judy Chicago, Faith Ringgold and Donald Sultan. Her work is included in many private collections, including the estate of the late Kenneth Noland, a well-known 1960’s color field painter. Jean speaks publicly about her work in relationship to her personal life experiences and faith, which illuminates more thoroughly the unique and powerful meaning embedded in her paintings.
