The shaped canvases of abstract artist Blinn Jacobs push the boundaries between form and surface in painting. Like Frank Stella, she creates abstract works on shaped canvases, yet her works are imbued with a painterly quality through the use of soft, muted color palette and graphic, textured lines that reveal the artist’s hand. “I am interested in using a variety of materials, sometimes in whimsical and surprising ways that playfully undermine the geometric formality of the work,” Jacobs has said. “Whether it is delicate weavings of ribbon or intersecting planes of transparent color where the hard edges are cajoled into an animated rhythm, I hope to merge movement with stability, transparency with opacity, and labor with play.”
