Statement

Jeanette’s work stems from observation and the importance and experience of looking; particularly as it has to do with representations of place and graphic 2D rendering of space.  She has been investigating the subject of landscape, considering it’s intersections with mathematics, patterning and geometry. As an artist her compulsion is to articulate the relationship between observation and it’s aesthetic experience by constructing and layering the imagery of maps, diagrams and graphs, focusing on their two-dimensional plane geometric patterns.  She pursues research into the cross-sections of geometry, geography and print media to better understand how the document as a form of visual transmission and translation represents information in graphic form.  Ultimately, by using visual and symbolic languages in her practice, she mediates the distance between the empirical intentions of data and the individual; between taught knowledge and lived experience.
