Blinn Jacobs "Paradigm 4"

  • Blinn Jacobs describes her work in a recent statement as being a dialogue between polygonal “shaped” canvases and the use of “painterliness” in regard to the interaction of color. Some of the works retain surface clarity; others become saturated by manipulation of graphic marks and various media. All involve a process-oriented manner that allows for discovery and a freedom to extemporize. I am interested in using a variety of materials. Sometimes a whimsical and playfullness undermines the geometric formality of the work. Whether it is delicate weavings of ribbon or intersecting planes of transparent color where the hard edges are cajoled into an animated rhythm, I hope to merge movement with stability, transparency with opacity, and labor with play. Blinn Jacobs studied at the Yale School of Art for four years and received her MFA in painting from the University of Pennsylvania. Blinn’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. Jacobs has been awarded many prestigious awards, grants, and residences including the Artist Fellowship Grant from the Connecticut Commision on the Arts, The Wofsey Award from tthe National Faber Birren Color Show, The Dr. Thomas Ayoub and Christine Dombrowski Award through Slivermine Guild Arts Center, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts Residency in Sweet Briar, VA, and the Oberpfalzer Kunstlerhaus Fellowship, International Residency in Schwandorf Germany.
