This is a many layered piece using the fun, bright color of pink! I started working the paint into the canvas using a very wide palette knife and began forming a wavy pattern that uncovered the previous layers I had already painted. I loved seeing the yellows, whites and pinks showing through. After working the texture all over into the wet paint, I let it dry. I later came back and added the blue and then gold mimicking the patterning I had created before. When I stood back, it reminded me of a flamingos feathers from close up, but it also made me think of a whole flock of flamingos, creating a sort of carpet.
Frances Jemini grew up watching her graphic-artist mother create art out of paper, cardboard, fabric, oil paints - you name it - and has thus tended towards artistic interests her whole life. It led her to study architecture at Virginia Tech, which is where she began creating acrylics and mixed-media artwork. Her style has been described as expressionist abstract centering mainly on the use of bold colors and deep textures and reflects her strong architectural background. Currently residing in Athens, Georgia Frances has also been greatly influenced by the local artist scene and enjoys incorporating avant-garde materials into her work. Her multimedia designs and artwork consist of found materials including cardboard, sheet vinyl, plastic, old credit cards, string and junkyard metal.
