ABOVE AND BELOW THE SURFACE

"In the presence of Jennifer Scott McLaughlin's paintings one feels transported to a lush garden. The flora grows whimsically, flowing with little concern for botany. Leaves and branches course from water to air to earth with plant forms that surge thickly or float in isolation. The eye dances across the surface from leaf to branch, and is drawn back to the gleaming atmospheric warm copper washes and cool blue and green patinas that seem to go on forever into the horizon.

While McLaughlin has always had an organic basis to her paintings, they have sustained an evolution over the past years. Early paintings had an ethereal sense to them. Organic orbs floated hazily through swaths of dark space, like bubbles erupting from the ocean floor or star nebulae in space. More recently, with the foundation of metal leaf as a first layer to each painting, the stage is set for greater luminosity. The result is a dimensional plane supporting each painting with more defined interplay between surface and background."

Jeanne Shoaff, Director of Programs and Curator, Fort Collins Museum of Contemporary Art
