PRINTMAKING + MARKINGS

I like the act of printmaking, the natural occurrences, where subconscious images emerge and unfold like a script of drawing from my memory.

Monotypes a painterly and spontaneous printing technique. It is a one of transfer from a painted surface (plastic, metal, etc.) to paper.

"TRANSITIONS"  SIZE H.120 CM X 36CM EACH, RICE PAPER, & THREADS - INSTALLATION SHOT   "RED HEAD GALLERY", TORONTO, ON

Excerpt from essay:   Wind, light, loss:  the paperwork ofJean Jewer  by Maureen Korp, PhD

Transitions, Jean Jewer’s second meditation series, is a set of five white paper panels, also measuring h.210cm x 36cm each.  White calligraphic emblems may be seen at the top of the panels.  Overall, long threads float freely.  Below the calligrams are complicated tangles of texture, shadows of black separating strata. 

In Japanese Buddhism, the concept of “ma” is often translated as “emptiness.”  To enter this state of being, one must consider one’s life, the world surrounding, and then empty all that from consciousness.  In Jean Jewer’s panels, we see the records of those meditations.

"FRAGMENTS"  rice paper, cheese cloth  & threads... installation shot  BLINK GALLERY,  Ottawa, ON

Fragments, displays three panels, each measuring h.210 cm x 36cm. each are veiled in white cheesecloth, the thin fabric pooling upon the floor.  White threads, floating top to bottom, hold nothing in place. They suggest a palimpsest of associations - a neglected public notice board battered by wind and time.   Excerpt from essay "Wind, Light and Loss by Maureen Korp, PhD
