For many artists, the act of creation isn’t just about projecting an image onto a canvas. Artists like Jen Garrido understand that often, it’s more about pulling a hidden entity out of the mist.
Garrido’s images straddle the line between abstraction and representation, which creates a beautiful tension in her work. With their stark and white, yet heavily textured backgrounds, the colors and lines feel like the emergence of spring after a long winter.
The way she molds shapes and textures together leave her paintings with a sculptural quality, bringing them to life in a way that makes them seem almost alive.
