Jennings, Caroline


oil on canvas

1988 Purchase funded by Herbert & Gloria Jones

This triptych is characteristic of Caroline Jennings' work. A sense of introspection and isolation is present in her paintings. Figures appear to be trapped in their own thoughts and do not interact with each other. The narrative quality of Jennings' work is influenced by the music she listens to while working in her studio. "I build my paintings on music much in the same way a choreographer builds a dance." Her art communicates messages about the choices we make and the paths we choose in our lives.
