Studio Production
1/23/2021

Studio Production
Last year was challenging and very difficult in terms of the COVID-19 pandemic for people throughout the world. It was also challenging on a personal level with trying to curve my time to make new works in the studio and teach in an online format. In June of 2020 I found a new cadance and practice to invigorate my studio routine tha injected new hope and inspiration into my process. 

I teach part time between a couple Universities and try to keep a balence in my studio with production. I am paid very little for the time I put into classes and try to make up for that with being creative on many fronts. One of the things this pandemic has forced me to reconcile is a routine between working and studo life. This year I've been working dilligently to create new work so that I can accomplish this balence and grow my practice in new ways that invigorate all other aspects of my life. 

So, I have started a new series of work that is filled with awkward balences, bright colors, and an alternating sense of perspective that is topsy turvy, awkward, not really grounded. This new work is reflective of the balence, or lack there of, that is present in my life and possibly the life of many others because of the pandemic. Bright colors symbolize hopefulness, idealism, and possibiliy, with gesture and painterly marks representing the human touch and dance in a confined surface. 

Frequently my 2021 page for paintings will have updates with new works. My Instagram page  @jennifferomaitz will have updates on things happening live in the studio. The goal is to move  forward, evolve and strive for better work. So, please join me in this new direction, check out my updates on this platform and social media. Interaction is ecouraged!

Thank you for your continued support.
