Jeanne Maguire

Jeanne holds a Masters of Fine Arts Degree, and has traveled extensively throughout the world.  Her work has come to reflect these experiences. Her current work is a synthesis of her love of texture, color and organic movement.  Jeanne would like to push the limits of what it might mean to paint or sculpt. She uses familiar materials in unfamiliar way. Always with reverence for traditional principles and elements of design.

The work has been influenced by vastly different artists; one example being Giotto. A man who was a product of the Late Middle Ages and is generally considered to be the first in a line of great artists who contributed to the Renaissance. He was the first in modern times to use what we now now as "Perspective".

Another strong influence in Jeanne’s work is Claude Monet. His scientific experimentation of light on color. Giotto broke through the wall of the three- dimensional form. Monet, along with his fellow Impressionist dealt with the effects of light on color. In Jeanne's inventive work with 3-D SCULPTURE PAINTING she combines these two art historical interests. Combining painting and sculpture together.

 Pablo Picasso is quoted as saying: “It takes a very long time to become young.” This resonates with Jeanne; as it speaks to working towards one’s authenticity. This for her is one of life’s essential truths; hard work but so very worth it in the end.
