This event has ended.

Blue Mountain Gallery presents work by Jennifer Toth. Titled “Knights and Rainbows : Metaphors for Motherhood,” the show is both a celebration of the fullness of motherhood and a dynamic reflection of the conflict between slow, peaceful observation and the constant whirlwinds of little boys.

Artist statement:
Having two active boys in my early forties really threw me for a loop. This spinning loop has been loving and joyful, as well as sometimes overwhelming . As I have struggled to regain my footing as a painter, working directly from observation, I have come to see every new work as a metaphor for my new experiences. In these last few years, I found myself drawn to chaotic and lively Mexican landscapes, toys that topple or deflate, branches and leaves that criss-cross and tangle. Amid so much life, I search for structure. My work has also begun to be surprisingly influenced by my six-year old son’s drawings, which have taught me something about unbridled artistic fearlessness. A few of my last pieces are really a collaboration!
