Jennifer Weiss, New York City Member Since May 2012 Artist Statement Jennifer Mrozek Weiss is an emerging abstract artist whose interest in art began when she was very young. When an art teacher in middle school suggested to her that she had talent, her passion to create art took over. Jennifer vividly remembers drawing in class, and then getting home from school and going directly to her canvas to paint! Her friends and family have always admired and encouraged her artwork. Often times, Jennifer is working on two or three paintings at once. She is a self-taught artist, who tried taking art classes, but felt that they were detrimental to her production and creativity. Jennifer has always trusted and believed that what she has inside is all she needs to produce the results she desires. Jennifer notes, "I have always been drawn to create because it lifts me to another level of consciousness and what I call a meditative state. It helps me to escape from the daily pressures and stresses of life. It also helps me to celebrate life and the beauty around me." Jennifer has been an acrylic-on-canvas painter for most of her life, and her style is surrealistic & abstract in nature. Her paintings encompass unique and often repetitive forms that dance with color, balance, rhythm, and personality. The majority of her work starts without a prior concept in mind, and the piece develops as her mind instructs her hand to move the paint brush. Lines develop into bolder shapes that take on color & balance. Jennifer produces artwork in flowing forms, integrated with energy and movement. Her work often has a sense of spirit flowing within it, and is pre-meditated through drawings that stand out to her. She is a colorist; the majority of her paintings and drawings reflect extravagant use of color. She incorporates colors that range in varying intensities from high to low and screaming to silent. There is a feeling of harmony within Jennifer's artwork; an internal discipline which color and forms are to obey. Her creativity and her drive to expose it to the world is a powerful purpose in her life. Jennifer's works have been featured in several prominent art media outlets, such as Everything Is Art Magazine, ArtsyShark (Emerging Artist Online Blog), Kipton Art, Artslant, and Elle Magazine. Her works have also been showcased at a number of prominent art galleries, including K Zhang Online Contemporary Art Gallery, HarvestedFreshART (NYC), Peter Louis Salon & Gallery (NYC), The Art Of Fashion "Pop Up" Gallery, Empire Hotel (NYC), Brenda Taylor Gallery (NYC), Greenpoint Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), Sotheby’s - NY Junior League Fall Auction (NYC), Night of 1,000 Drawings @ Artist Space (NYC), Hairmates (NYC), and Cafe Yolla (NYC).
