Jeri is a Memphis based painter who provides us with depictions of found objects that have endured the essence of time. To some her works may look somewhat similiar to the works of Mark Tobey, and perhaps even Cy Twombly. For the upcoming exhibition titled Jeri Ledbetter Jeri continues to explore the delicate balance between immediacy and purpose, finding and connecting, building and scraping.
She provides an engaging translation through her unique artistic processes, allowing the allure and seduction of the line to penetrate our hearts and minds. Not the humorous line of Paul Klee, nor the agitated line of Alberto Giacometti but rather a shy line lost perhaps and searching for its origins which is enhanced by the her choice of mixed media on paper.
