Jenny Field’s Artist Statement:

 “It has been a diverse and colorful journey over the past 26 years as a professional rural artist in Minnesota. Much of my creative attention had been focused on decorative art, managing my seasonal arts and antiques business in the lakes area, being a mom, painting furniture, teaching art classes, (for children and adults) painting commissions, and murals for homes, museums, and states. I had limited time and energy to offer towards my vividly expressionistic work for galleries and solo exhibits.

 However, with that limited time, I still managed a window of time that provided the opportunity over the years to exhibit and sell work that leaned more towards the contemporary work that I loved creating.

 The current artistic direction of my work is working with vibrant hues, both complementary and contrasting colors, mixing sharp lines of cubist influence on some pieces, heavy texture and flowing softer lines on others, and occasionally limited palettes. The subject matter in many pieces are my expression of how color and symbolism have been influential in my life, and therefore in my journey through my work. I am also enjoying collaboration projects with other artists which is proving to be absolutely fascinating.

 Although my works are created to individually stand on their own as objects of contemplation, symbolism, and occasional question, my goal is always to have my art pieces viewed as a colorful and exciting experience for the viewer. As they are forever a colorful and exciting experience for me to create."
