International Exhibiting Artist, Jennifer Pazienza releases 27 small painting inspired by her treasured Keswick Ridge
New Brunswick, Canadian artist Jennifer Pazienza will release a series of 27 small oil paintings on stretched canvas sized 8 x 8 inches that celebrate her 27 years of painting on Keswick Ridge. Seen in their entirety, 24 x 72 inches, 27 Squares echoes the extreme horizontal format of her early days of painting on the Ridge. The grid hints at her Sicilian heritage and past tile work.
The individual squares signal her present painting practice and foreshadow what is to come in her November through December 2020 solo show, Embracing the Square: Love Poems from the Ridge at Moncton’s historic Capitol Theatre Art Gallery.
“For as long as I can remember the stuff of the natural world has been my go to place for personal and artistic refuge, reflection and renewal. Especially on Keswick Ridge, as the end of one year gives way to the next.”
Watch this short video below that shows a glimpse of 27 Squares and the stunning natural surroundings of Keswick Ridge that inspired this work.
