Press kit - Jennifer Richards Art, California Oil Painter and Fine Artist

647 views

Published on

Press kit / media kit for Jennifer Richards Art and her "SoCal Muse" collection of oil paintings, on exhibit at the Encinitas 101 Mainstreet Association Gallery February 15 - March 30, 2014.

SoCal Muse is a collection of oil paintings created by California artist Jennifer Richards and inspired by the landscape, vegetation and lifestyle of Southern California. “I love to paint the peaceful, unique and interesting subjects that draw so many of us to Southern California. This region is my muse.”

A native of Northern Virginia, Jennifer Richards took a detour to Fairbanks, Alaska before settling in San Diego County in 1997. Her work does not ignite political commentary, challenge the human condition, or provoke deep inward existentialist examination. It’s not complicated or philosophical. Rather, there is simplicity and an ever-present serenity in her work, a counter-balance to the hurried hamster-wheel of 21st century life.

SoCal Muse contains reproductions of the following oil paintings, all created in 2013 by Jennifer Richards: Welcome to Encinitas, Paraglider over Torrey Pines, Motorcycle and the orange grove, Windmills in the desert, Lavender pasture, Yosemite Valley View, Batiquitos Lagoon, Sunset surfer at Swami's reef, Fisherman's perch beach cottage at Crystal Cove, Yellow surfboard, Point Loma, Surf lesson, Sandpipers at the beach, Pregnant apple, Apples and metal cup, Tarnished silver bowl and oranges, Blue bottle and lemons, Orange slices, Avocado, Lavender farm, Blue bottle and lavender, and Bird of paradise.

Jennifer Richards lives and paints in the beautiful coastal town of Encinitas, California.

  4. 4. Jennifer Richards ARTIST BIOGRAPHY Welcome to Encinitas 2013, oil on panel, 13 3/8” x 24” Jennifer Richards does not create art for political commentary, to challenge the human condition, or to provoke deep inward existentialist examination. It’s not complicated or philosophical. Rather, there is simplicity and an ever-present serenity in her work, a counter-balance to the hurried hamster-wheel of 21st century life.! ! As a child in the mid-Atlantic region of the east coast, Jennifer Richards never dreamt of becoming an artist. She channelled her creative side into playing viola, experimenting in the darkroom with her grandfather's old SLR camera, and sewing her own clothing. Her passion in high school for all things scientific opened the door to after-school employment in a biotech lab, and in college and graduate school she studied geography and the global diversity of land, resources, and cultures-- themes that would resurface many years later in her art. ! ! Batiquitos Lagoon 2013, oil on panel, 12 x 9 inches A craving for adventure and independence lead Jennifer to Fairbanks, Alaska at age 20 where she spent four life-changing years living in a rustic, dry cabin. She was captivated by the beauty of the subarctic landscape and felt quite at home among the unique characters and culture of the region. While in Alaska, the relationship between visual perception and emotional wellbeing became firmly cemented in her consciousness. “I remember lying in the snow to watch the northern lights dance across the sky. Despite the bitter cold, I couldn't imagine a more peaceful place.”! ! Paraglider over Torrey Pines 2013, oil on panel, 18 x 18 inches In search of a little more sunshine, Jennifer and her Alaska sweetheart moved to Southern California in 1997 and chose Encinitas in 2002 when they were ready to start a family.

  5. 5. Jennifer Richards ARTIST BIOGRAPHY (continued) spirit of the locals, Jennifer embarked on a mission to fill the walls of her new home with paintings of uniquely-local subjects. "The only way I could get exactly what I wanted was to try to do it myself, so I bought a bunch of paint and canvases and started to experiment.”! Bird of paradise 2013, oil on panel, 24 x 36 inches ! After a decade of unsatisfying results, Jennifer began formal art instruction with Albert Martin in 2012 and literally went back to the drawing board to learn foundational skills of the old masters. Within a year she was ready to emerge from the studio and present her work in public. In 2013 her paintings were juried into shows at the Museum of the Living Artist in San Diego’s Balboa Park, and she won her first award at the San Diego Fine Art Exhibition at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Racetrack. The Off Track Gallery in Encinitas, CA began showing and selling her work, and in 2014 the Encinitas 101 Mainstreet Association invited her to present her first solo show, SoCal Muse.
