Biography & Artist's Statements

Statement of Work

Jody Ahrens

 

Edgy Impressionism best describes Jody’s colorful, bold landscapes. She is both a plein air and a studio painter who uses conventional brushes as well as scrapers, knives and other items to achieve her unique style. Her subject matter is inspired by a variety of remote back country locations. Most paintings start with a plein air painting that is polished and finished in the studio.

 

Being an experimental artist, the most important part of Jody’s process is being sensitive to the evolving composition, recognizing interesting unplanned developments and preserving or enhancing them. That means allowing the original idea morph into something new, different, unplanned and exciting.

 

The majority of Jody’s work invites the viewer to invent their own adventure … a tempting path to explore … an intriguing shady woods just across the meadow … or a quiet pond inviting pause. When a viewer’s imagination is engaged, their connection and enjoyment of the piece will grow over time.
