Jen Garrido | Shapes That Listen

Each of Garrido’s compositions has an internal gravity that develops as she works. She draws out forms that tangle, touch, and overlap; that sit, lean and lay. She pays attention to shapes that climb or melt, slither or are filled with air; shaping ridges, platforms, grooves, and soft spaces woven through the layers. No composition is planned. Each choice is influenced by the ones that came before, working shape by shape, layer by layer. The power of color and her intuitive use of shape combine to form emotive vessels that communicate an ever-changing internal and external growth- to which we all can relate.
