With the multilayered creation of her serene and striking landscapes, Jen Romnes' richly textured paintings capture the holistic complexity and delicate balance of nature. Using paint almost as a sculpturing tool to conjure her dramatic colors and forms, Jen evokes the many tactile qualities of her subject matter: the coolness of stone, the splintery bark of trees and the shimmering clarity of luminous ponds. These diverse elements are presented in Jen's acrylic-on-wood works as if in a silent, slow-moving visual dance. Jen constructs a visual dynamic in her landscapes, in which the interdependency of nature's components, along with the beauty, is revealed and orchestrated to a satisfying visual wholeness.
A passionate observer of the environment in all its complexity, Jen Romnes strives to capture nature's struggles in a moment of beauty. In doing so, she pays homage to the intricacy of the natural world by mirroring its layers in her work, while also presenting for us landscapes that should be preserved with beauty and dignity.
