The Artist Says:


What I am always attempting to portray in my paintings is evidence of human interaction--with each other and with the landscape. These relationships are most descriptive in everyday activities. Gesture, action and environment provide clues to the subjects' personalities.  I want the viewer to know and relate to the people and the places, sensing motion and a story.
 



Other Artists Say:


“Jennifer Mathews is a true exponent of “Naturalism,”  a trend in art history of closely observing the world in which we live.  Although tempted by the apparent freedom of abstraction, she has clung tenaciously to her own personal vision of the world.  It is difficult to remain true to one’s personal vision in the current trend toward a spurious freedom of expression.”  –Roger Armstrong
