J.Wecks In Italia
My good friend Jenn Weckselblatt is currently painting in Venice, Italy as part of the New York University program for the arts. While I am highly, highly jealous of her place in the country I love, I think I love her new GIANT paintings more. The gesture of the paint and, as usual, her command of light is astonishing.
I have known Jenn since Arcadia and have always been jealous of her ability to create a glowing light unlike anyone else. Her change from working smaller to larger seems to thus far be a good transition; allowing her to create larger, more expressive strokes in her works.
