Having spent a great deal
of time in Barbados as a child, artist Jennifer Pick still
remembers her summers and Christmas holidays on the Island
in the Sun. Her memories of the women of Barbados and their
beautiful colors inspire her imagination as the lines and
colors of her works develop their powers of expression.
Characterized by flat, bold areas of color, she creates
a visual color harmony that engages the viewer through intensely
stimulating information and dynamic equilibrium. In the
work In Contemplation, she uses a range of analogous
colors moving from blues through purples to hot pinks, and
then splashes her image with complementary greens and golds
to create maximum contrast and stability. In Dress
and Dancer her subjects are in action poses, creating
a sense of movement that is emphasized by the repetition
of the elements on their clothing. Their overall effect
exudes style, spirit and intelligence.
Pick received her bachelor of arts degree
from Hamilton College, Clinton, NY.
