Gentle Wild, a solo exhibition by internationally acclaimed contemporary artist, Jennifer JL Jones running from Feb 3, 2022 – March 3, 2022 at New River Fine Art. This solo exhibition of new works by nature-inspired abstract artist, Jennifer JL Jones, follows on the heels of her previous sold-out exhibition at New River Fine Art and pays homage to Flora and Fauna while juxtaposing serenity and calm with the raw, high-energy ferociousness found in Mother Nature.
Gentle Wild explores what the artist sees as “echoes of life”. In Gentle Wild, artworks reveal abundant wildflowers, vibrant gardens, and ocean rhythms within the cherished and tranquil moments of external and internal reflections. Yet, Gentle Wild also portrays other powerful forces found in Nature – a raw energy of untamed fierceness. Jones reveals brutal strength and power through bold and bright colors. She often describes her paintings as “inner self-portraits”, siting nature in its many-layered, intangible forms as a guide and source of ethereal connection and engagement.
