Jane Bloodgood-Abrams

My work has continued to explore theunique light and dramatic atmosphere of the Hudson Valley. High vantage pointswith emphasis on Clouds and a sense of space excite and inspire me, where thereis a connection with a higher energy and one feels alive. With these pieces Iseek to transcend the landscape as mere subject matter, and use it as a tool toillustrate nature’s spiritual or emotional essence. In many works I may usethe composition or presentation of the image in such a way as to present thelandscape as iconography, to be worshiped and revered.

Biography

Jane Bloodgood Abrams was born in Queens, New York. She received her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from the College of Saint Rose in Albany, in 1985. Three years later, she earned a Master’s of Fine Arts at the State University of New York in New Paltz. Now she paints in and of the Hudson River Valley and the Berkshires.

 

Style

Her paintings are powerful compositions of earth, sky and cloud. Radiant, in the tradition of the Hudson River school and the luminists, Bloodgood-Abrams’ work successfully participates in the canon of American art in a way that few other contemporary contributions can claim to do. The pieces are essentially emotional, revealing the artist’s personal engagement with the mystery and power of nature. The paintings are worked over a period of time in a very intuitive manner, with layers of paint, applied, wiped away, and allowed to dry between sessions and be worked over again. This push-pull process allows an evocative image to emerge.

 

EDUCATION

Master of Fine Arts Painting - (cum laude) State University of New York at New Paltz 1988

Bachelor of Studio Arts - (cum laude) College of Saint Rose, Albany 1985
