     Jaye Alison Moscariello's new body of work, "Chase, The Monkey" invokes the primal idea of love and fun within the spirit. She employs expressive color and sinuous line to evoke the powerful connections between/among human beings and nature. Her palette suggests the tropics without being garish, and her self-assured contour drawing reminds some viewers of Matisse, communicating a lot with just a little. Her figures chase the élan of human interaction in their colorful environs. The figures become the masters of their domain, man stripped down to his animal. They are everyone and anyone, existing in a locale where identity lies not as deeply as the desire for freedom and joy.

     The whimsical nature of this series harks back to the playful life. Charges of virility focus the energy of this work. It reminds us of who we can be, what we are deep within our souls. Moscariello looks deep within the urban jungle to find the flow of life. Her work reverts back to humanist desires. This new series is filled with intimacy both in terms of the interpersonal and in relation to our surroundings.
