This show reflects on the emotional influence art has in our daily lives, and how the presence of art in our physical spaces can positively impact our mood and mental wellbeing, as well as how abstract art sparks an immediate connection with us, despite its absence of subject.
Jenna Kast // Abstract Mixed Media Artist // Green Bay, Wisconsin
Through my intuitive and passionate abstractions I aim to express the intangible: sentiment, passion, and feeling. I found myself drawn to nonrepresentational art because it felt like emotion incarnate – a release of energy that creates a marker in time of intangible thought and emotion. I believe in the viewing of abstract art we are not only gaining a glimpse of the innermost thoughts of the artist, but also seeing our own innermost thoughts, hopes and dreams reflected back to us like a mirror, via our own internal reaction to what we see.
My work often combines techniques that are out of control with ones that are carefully planned. Individual collections often reflect my mood or state of mind during the period of their creation, and it is my ultimate joy when collectors – who have very different life experiences and stories from mine – connect in their own unique and deeply personal way to my work, allowing it to take on a new life.
In my work color inspires emotion, composition tells a story, and texture creates connection.
