I love Jeanie Gooden‘s abstract paintings. She has a beautiful sense of colour, texture and balance, there’s a great sense of calm to her work. Like many successful artists she’s self-taught and being from Nashville was initially inspired by music. However it was to be visual art that was her calling and after working in galleries for years she eventually pursued painting as a full time profession. Her work is all about process and technique, the canvases painted, scraped, etched upon, stitched and glazed – she calls it abstract graffiti. The work an expression, a thought, a conversation between herself and the canvas.
These days she spends much of her time in Mexico and the country has had a fundamental impact on her work:
Painting in an ancient city of beautiful architecture and rich colour impacts my work in ways that I didn’t expect…but are delightful to me. The textures of Mexico, created by its deep cultural history, have become an intimate part of my work.
