January 15 - 29, 2022
Janna Watson delves into the depths of space above and ocean below with a new series of lively and sophisticated abstract compositions. Clusters of purposefully placed gestural strokes in elegant earthy and pearly tones float against backgrounds of velvety navy, suggestive of the enveloping embrace of primordial darkness. Balanced by Janna’s signature poetic titles, these works are suffused with equal parts thoughtful introspection and lightness of being.
This series illustrates the dark blues that appear to float in deep, watery, starry space - the space where I’d rather be, in the sky or in the ocean. The ocean is attracted to the moon, and we are all caught somewhere in between that “pull".
When floating, there’s a movement felt, but not seen.
A silent pull.
Feelings that can’t or don’t have words.
