Jenna Almond Williams
Fine artist based in Denver, CO
With a passion for process and materials, Jenna creates and teaches in Denver Metro and surrounding areas.
The beauty and challenge of working abstractly is that the outcome is never certain. The result is always an accumulation of choice, accident and consequence.
Applying the first layer of color begins a meditative process that is both an act of surrender and control. As material is added and removed, sanded out and rubbed in, forms are pushed back and pulled forward in a tense yet revealing dialogue between my physical action, my intellectual and emotional choices, and the material itself.
Through this process I find a powerful intersection between art and how we move through life. Often I seek to question the outcomes of our many decisions both politically and socially. At other times I present the resulting consequences of these decisions as a visual awareness and a reckoning.
