Marbles Eleven, Oil on Canvas, 24x36
This show encompasses pieces from three bodies of my work, painted over a number of years. All of these are connected through use of vibrant color, the reflective nature of subject matter, and the large scale. There are paintings of food, my most well known genre, my latest series I like to call “ Glassworks” of jars and marbles and 2 pieces from my “Abstraction through Reality” series. These 2 pieces are hyperrealistic at a great distance and meant to be abstract at close hand. Much of my work centers around the nostalgia we feel for favorite things, often from childhood memories and the joy of beautiful colors on a canvas.

In this new series of paintings, artist Jamee Linton takes landscape painting to a new level through the juxtaposition of player piano roll music, a symbolic but nonfunctional childhood instrument. In this work, Linton experiments with the application of perforated music notations using the interaction of the imagery to invite an element of abstraction into her work. The notations create a code-like message that engages the landscape, transforming the audible notations into a visual element, allowing the broken player piano’s voice to be revealed.
