Artist: Jodie King

I use bold color, many layers of paint, and other forms of mixed media to create art that has been called “whimsical, sometimes deep, and always honest.” The layers of paint on the canvas create depth within the painting and symbolically reflect back the many layers of our lives. At the heart of my work is a call to all of us to live unapologetically, with joyful abandon and freedom.

My process involves journaling and meditating before any paint touches the canvas. Afterwards, using my gut/intuition as my guide, I make marks, write, and layer paint while letting go of what the final result may be.

Whether the painting is pure abstract or infused with vintage photography, the work is a bold expression of my voice as an artist and as a woman. The hard-won lessons of life, and sometimes the downright hilarious ones, reveal themselves in my work in unexpected ways. With intuition as my guide crazy, fun, and deep stuff happens on the canvas.

    My goodness, this is my kind of art, utterly. but I do know it really asks to be seen face to face. Stunning in its infinitude of layering. And Jodie, your artist statement is honest and brilliant, in other words I hear you and get it…Keep on Truckin…

    I too love your work here and your artist’s statement. I’ve only started experimenting with abstract painting and find it so freeing and interesting. It does seem to pull things from within out onto the page.
