What if we ask ourselves in every moment of every hour of every day for the rest of our lives, “What would I love?” What if we allow ourselves the incredible gift of connecting with our truest and deepest desires?

What if we believe we are not just able or entitled to do so, but that we know that by granting ourselves this gift of connection that we make the world better. Better for ourselves, for our partners, for our children, for the planet. What if the space of art encourages and reinforces this notion? What if the artist by living fully and outwardly and inspiringly and generously shares this notion as an artist, a woman, a mother, a partner, a Yogi, a generator, a friend, a community member? What if paintings and sculptures and installations can become incantations, prayers, experiences? What if all things are not just what they are but are also more? What if the entire universe can be not just captured but encompassed both in the work of art and also in the experience of it? This is not just what I believe, but rather what I know. This is how I know Jen Guidi. This is how I know her work. This is how I am inspired. This is how I practice. This is how I learn. This is how I love. This is how I am. Amen.

Jennifer Guidi 1972 年出生于加利福尼亚州雷东多海滩。她在洛杉矶生活和工作。

詹妮弗·吉迪的画作错综复杂,解读含糊,在广泛的联想中摇摆不定。 吉迪从彩色底漆或生亚麻布开始,通过使用沙子、油漆和丙烯酸聚合物的水泥状混合物来遮盖最初的一层。 在仍然潮湿的情况下,这种沉积的外部会被手工雕刻的工具小心地操纵,梳理和分开,通过数百个小凹痕露出下面的基层。

她的作品进一步推进了极简主义和精神抽象的现代主义历史,让人回想起艾格尼丝·马丁(Agnes Martin)微妙的几何重复或希尔玛·阿夫·克林特(Hilma af Klint)的六翼天使形式和光环色彩渐变:将尘世物质与以太连接起来的神秘渲染。 圭迪开发组合放射状系统的冥想过程,其中“起点”产生离心标记力,通常稍微向左开始,代表心脏作为能量来源,表现出松散的椭圆形球形循环系统,就像血液流过静脉一样 和动脉,钉住经络穴位。
