DESCRIPTION

Craig Krull Gallery will present an exhibition of new paintings by Connie Jenkins entitled, Fossil Reef. These works represent a continuation of a series that the artist began about six years ago when she spent her first week on Santa Rosa Island with National Park biologists that were conducting intertidal monitoring studies on the Channel Islands. Most of the paintings in this exhibition are based on photographs of tide pools that Jenkins made over the past six years at Fossil Reef on the northwest side of the island. Although the artist might be identified as a photo-realist painter, she notes that the work is about “the perceptual interstice between abstraction and illusion—that particularity of the arrangement of shape and value and color that triggers pattern recognition.”
