“I love to work in many different mediums- painting, printmaking and encaustics. While thinking about my next exhibit at Touchstone Gallery, it was necessary to review my past exhibits and concentrate on the consistent elements in my work. A black & white stripe often found a place in my work, it became my signature image.
For this exhibit, I decided to paint the humble stripe, lots of stripes. Varying the width & color produced a serene kind of rhythm. Square canvases, long thin wood panels and works on paper demonstrate the success variety is to the stripe.
This series was challenging, rewarding and fun to do. This is my love affair with Stripes.” -- Jeanne Garant
