A solo Exhibition of paintings at Visual Aid Gallery

"Martine Jardel’s new paintings suggest landscapes but the ground is as deceptive and unstable as marshland and the horizon seems submerged in watery depths or fragmented and scattered over the picture plane. She has always been process oriented so she is open to accidents and random events as she creates. Jardel uses palette knives and rags as she paints --- layering, scraping, wiping, scratching away, dripping and floating oil paint to create surfaces that embody a sense of time. Working large gives her the opportunity to emphasize the gestural quality of the act of painting. In recent years, Jardel has shifted from vertical canvases to painting on horizontal ones. Using the landscape as a frame to explore ideas and images, she continues her efforts to visually evoke a collection of experiences, whose memories unspool and evolve at their own pace in her imagination. ."

Special thanks to the Consulat général de France à San Francisco.
