Solana Beach, California – Madison Gallery presents Kansas City based post abstract-expressionist artist Jane Booth and her series Narratives. Often creating monumentally scaled, color saturated canvases, her process is tactile and physical. Booth begins with large swaths of raw canvas on the floor. Engaging all of her senses, she accesses a nonverbal internal landscape, translating into a felt sense of color and mark. Paint is poured and pushed by hand into the canvas; the degrees of separation between feeling and fulfillment are narrow.
This series narrates the physicality and experience of being human. The imagery is raw and initially unedited, accessing interior and exterior landscapes to begin, recorded with stick, brush, palms of hands, screwdrivers, pencil, crayon, spray paint, filled with an array of sensory and intellectual experiences.
Booth’s work and movement emerges for the next mark and in that way, it becomes a dialogue. Like a Jazz melody, her work consists of free movement: choreography between artist and canvas. Working with unprimed canvas, Booth layers color stains, building a base of saturated hues. Those layers of stain create a luminous quality in the paintings. The scale of her works evokes the expanse of Kansas and her passion for natural beauty. Her work is in over 600 private and corporate collections and museums.
