Piece of the Week: Push Play
We have arrived to the final week of the “Push Play” exhibit at SEAD Gallery. The texture, depth, color, and technique of each painting has left its own unique impression on each guest that has visited the Gallery. Each piece has told its own story and has inspired many of its spectators. It was Jennifer Christy’s goal in the months of the creating process that she would place zero expectations on her creations and only seek pure joy out of the act of painting. Her mindset on her pieces allowed this exhibit to be what it is.
It only seems fitting to feature the piece that gave the name of the exhibit as the final Piece of the Week for Jennifer Christy’s collection. “Push Play” is a piece where Jennifer really let herself experiment with the paints around her. She squeezed the paints straight out of the tubes, leaving them in their natural state with zero adjustments. She allowed the spray paints to run into each other. The paint strokes were left in a simple state and the circles were not perfect. Jennifer created a painting of imperfections into something rich in color variety, texture, and detail. Like many of her pieces in the gallery, “Push Play” serves as a reminder that not all things need to be predetermined – sometimes, we need to take that first step towards a wild and beautiful journey.
