This original piece is acrylic, ink, and pastels on raw canvas.
I created it in 2013 and it is a depiction of the view from a window in Seoul, South Korea.
It began as these words:
Neon lights flash below and beyond. Men march the streets as ants. Going somewhere. Going nowhere in this great haze of concrete boxes topped with green life. I watch above, like a creator of this miniature city. What are the stories being told? What dreams are being stolen or born. No matter. I already know the great answers. It's all the same. one message. one idea. one big mess of hopeful existence.

Born in 1986 Jennifer Charboneau is an energetic U.S. artist with roots from the bustling city of Minneapolis. Since 2008 she has traveled to 21 different countries and lived in 3. She lives and breaths as a nomadic artist. Her creative process begins from obsessive observation of all the diverse places she wanders through. What begins as chaotic scribbles and sketches (mostly done while on the road) later become chaotic yet refined visual philosophies highlighting personal, subjective experience. Some muses that influence her artwork across all borders are: impressionism. expressionism. street art. nature. philosophy. music. haiku & prose poetry. and people watching. She is a visual philosopher who is out to absorb all that this life has to show… then spit it out onto canvas and paper as chaotically and yet beautifully as it was first observed. website: jcharboneau.com NOTE: ALL J.CHARBONEAU ARTWORKS ARE ORIGINAL AND NO PRINTS HAVE EVER OR WILL EVER BE MADE.
