Studio Log February 4, 2018 / by Jennifer Davey

Today I am literally and figuratively working on some old maps I received from a friend. I love the metaphor of a map that marks the terrain of the land. Over this surface, I create marks to map the interior landscape. These colors are inspired by a visit home last week in which I was able to visit some of my first abstract works from 2005.  This 2005 show, Power,  was made up of 5 large black paintings and 26 small pink paintings. The colors were a means for me to explore the notions of power through a feminine lense. I was curious about the nature of power as examined through intuition, instinct, destruction and creation. It’s inspiring to return to older work. I have a sense of returning home and re-visiting inspirations that still nourish and inspire me. They call me for further exploration. It’s been a rich Sunday in the studio!
