JESSIE BANASZAK

Dynamic Visions
July 8 – July 28, 2016
Reception: Thursday, July 14, 2016 6-8 PM

Jessie Banaszak doesn't limit herself or her media. Her paintings explore both figurative and abstract depictions of emotive landscapes and moments. In both cases, Banaszak paints freely, imbuing her figurative work with evocatively abstract colors and her abstract work with distinctly realistic structures and symbols. In every form, her paintings share a cohesive sense of composition and color, with rich pigments, physical perspective, and a sense of anticipatory change acting as familiar markers of place and purpose.

Banaszak's work is heavily influenced by world travel and the natural world, and reflects an organic, if playful, take on traditional art forms. This playfulness embodies Banaszak's positive outlook, which is most apparent in the kaleidoscope colors in her abstract work. These bright, fluid forms seem to contain their own sense of nature, with shapes and symbols reminiscent of graphic design, traditional artwork, and visual poetry. This is mirrored in Banaszak's figurative work, with finely painted textures creating a sense of organic comfort.

Banaszak was born in New York City and currently lives in Milwaukee.
