Artist Profile - Jennifer Gough

| No Comments

Jennifer Gough is a self taught, multidisciplinary, visual and conceptual artist.
Inspired by the belief that we create our own future through our thoughts and actions, with a strong focus on conversation and communication, Jennifer's work becomes a starting point. A place where questions and answers are equally important and explored openly.

Her work is centered around creating connections, inspiring introspection, and self exploration. Through the use of color, texture, and composition, Jennifer creates compelling works that encourage us to examine who we are and what motivates us.

Modern abstracts drenched in color, combined with her use of clean lines and shapes lend themselves to a feeling of big city loft living.  Layered, mixed media pieces give depth and texture to an otherwise flat canvas and add intrigue and interest for conceptual analysis.
The objective of her work is to bring the viewer into the piece. To inspire a connection and allow each one to find something of themselves in the piece.

"Driven by emotion, my work expresses feelings of ambition, hope, fear, exhilaration and determination. Bold colors and strong lines represent power and strength, while blended, textured areas speak more to personal growth, passion and the pursuit of happiness. In my opinion, art is a very personal experience. To be viewed from ones own perspective. Not necessarily to be understood but instead, to be felt and inspire a reaction in the viewer."

Part of my studio training involves working with evolving themes.

Many of my pieces are inspired by nature, history or architecture.

This is my third year in the Art Walk. I enjoy creating unit and original pieces of art out of fabric, form cottons to synthetics materials. I enjoy working with stones and images of the beach and I love the beauty of flowers. I will be exploring with shredded fabric and stitch art techniques. My work will have the inspiration of stone, fun flowers and more that will enhance the beauty of your home. This year I hope to see the pervasive and new visitors come to enjoy my work.
