From the series Painter Jane Bloodgood-Abrams has become one of the Hudson Valley’s most celebrated artists, gracing viewers with her compositions of sky, river, and earth. A modern day Hudson River School painter, Bloodgood-Abrams is focused on capturing nature’s essence, “the deeply profound moments, where there is a connection to a vital energy.” Her process begins with being in nature, where she allows the emotional energy of the landscape to filter through her psyche. The memory is then translated onto canvas after being worked over a period of time with layers of paint that is applied, wiped away, and reworked. The result is a stunning landscape reminiscent of work by Frederic Church and Thomas Cole. The artist’s final hope is for these images to evoke remembrances within the viewer's own personal relationship with nature.
