Jean Pederson - Changes

Watercolor and Gesso on Yupo painting by Jean Pederson from Calgary, Canada.

Artist Statement: It is my desire to employ different materials, scale and processes in my work and are the evidence of an artist always taking risks searching for that connection , that one "true" moment between myself, subject and you the viewer.

The openness, immediacy and sensitivity of my hand while simultaneously rendering a likeness creates complex fluid personages that reflect the emotional and psychological complexity common to each of us, flawed ,
compassionate, vulnerable and that which makes us most human.
