Jen Garrido Solo Show · June 9-30, 2018
Wally Workman Gallery will open its second show with painter Jen Garrido. Garridoâs work depicts nature-based forms and rhythms as well as color and shape studies while weighing ambiguity with representation. She is guided by ideas of holding, leaning and softness. Her process is that of working with balance: adding and subtracting, abstracting and transforming. Using gouache and watercolor, Garridoâs translucent gestures appear to evolve across each workâs negative space, inspiring a sense of lightness and life. This is the first time her non-objective and nature based work has been created and shown side by side, a process that has created a new conversation about balance both internally and externally.
