This engaging, confident skulls stares directly back at the viewer. A two way conversation begins, as the recognizable symbol reminds us of several things. As human beings are all connected through our physical properties, such as our skeletal systems. We also all experience the cycle of life, which in 16th and 17th art was often expressed through a vanita that expressed the short time we are given here on earth. Through the exaggerated color scheme and form, this piece suggests the beauty of life that connects us all.
No need to frame! The color wraps around the edges of the back-stapled canvas and hanging hardware is already in place.
Born in Raleigh, North Carolina, Jamie Lynn continues to live and work in the area. She earned her B.A. in Fine Arts and Education from Meredith College, and later completed her graduate studies at East Carolina University earning her M.A.Ed in Art Education. She has taught art for 15-years and currently teaches high school in Wake Forest, NC. Her work evolves with time, however there are certain constants: color, organic forms and unity always dominate in her work. She prefers acrylic paint due to the versatile nature of the media and the ability to accomplish a range of effects with different techniques. She enjoys traveling and draws a lot of inspiration from places she visits and artists she encounters. When she's not painting or teaching, she is spending time with her husband and one-year old son.
