Artist, Jennifer L Mohr with her dog, Bixby

JENNIFER L MOHR she/her

Jennifer L Mohr is an acrylic painter in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada.  Jennifer’s landscape paintings of wild, weedy, naturalistic meadows are influenced by the Canadian Prairie she calls home.  Expressive mark and colour layered in Jennifer’s maximalist style invites the viewer to linger in their own moment of connection with the land.  Jennifer holds a B.F.A. in painting from the University of Saskatchewan and her paintings have been acquired by collectors across Canada, the United States, and beyond.

CREATIVE STATEMENT

In my paintings, I explore my identity and connection to place.  I reflect on peaceful moments of solitary introspection in nature and intermingle those recollections with imagined details to create pictures of a place that feel authentic and reflective of my identity.  

 

With fast-drying acrylic, I layer immediate and spontaneous marks and glazes, building up on the surface to create depth and interest in my garden-like landscapes.  As I paint, I consider relationships between marks, opacity, texture, colour, light, and shadow, manipulating them to deepen the layered sense of place until the painting reaches a balanced familiarity.  Ground-level perspective and wild, weedy drifts of rhythmic grasses and plants invite lingering observation and a moment of grounded introspection for the viewer.
