I remember when Jeanne Rhea was experimenting with polymer clay and alcohol inks for ATC’s – I was intrigued. Inspired by fractals and images similar to photomicrography, the mixed media artist soon shifted her focus away from clay, instead creating ink paintings on other non-porous substrates.
When she discovered that customers prefer to see abstracts in large formats she responded by making the ink paintings in sizes that range from 12″x12″ to 36″x36″. Jeanne shared with me that she still makes ATC’s to work out color, composition and ink reactions.
I love the burst of colors! These fractal-meets-micro-organism paintings are bold and bright enough to wake you up on a sleepy morning! My only request is to see a shot of the paintings framed and mounted on the wall so we can get a better idea of the scale.
