Jhenna Quinn-Lewis: The Theft
2016, oil on canvas
Meyer Gallery, 225 Canyon Road, 505-983-1434 Jhenna Quinn-Lewis paints still lifes and bird imagery with an elegant simplicity inspired by Japanese art and philosophy. “My inspiration comes from Japanese masters such as Utagawa Hiroshige, Utamaro, and Hasegawa Tōhaku,” she writes. “In college, I took courses on the Japanese tea ceremony and the art of flower arrangement. It is there I discovered the tenets of wabi-sabi, the adherence to beauty in the imperfect, the impermanent, and in austerity.” A selection of her representational paintings remains on view at Meyer.
