DescriptionIn these pieces I am just beginning to explore the appeal of separation. It is a heady topic. I have many more questions than answers. Lines reference and define borders, boundaries, and bodies. They make us feel safe. I combine non-compatible materials and watch what happens. Experimentation is my goal - not to discover something but rather to engage fully with my materials, delighting in the unexpected. I struggle as an artist to not paint a picture of something outside myself. I don't know where i lost sight of myself as part of the natural world. The action of making reminds me that i am ok.
About this Artist
Jeannine Mullan is an experimental mixed media artist. She lives and works in Buffalo, NY. She has a BA in Economics and is a graduate of the Maine Media College of Film and Photography with an MFA in Visual Arts. “My process of making is anchored in flexibility. I am engaged with my materials and coax them in their movement as they ebb and flow. My substrates are both common and handmade. My paints are organic and non-organic, made with pigments gathered from above and from beneath the earth. A deep engagement with my materials motivates me, and a reverence for a creative power greater than myself inspires me.”View Full Artist Bio
