Folds, Gestures, Movement by Jenniffer Omaitz
The Kent State University School of Art Collection and Galleries presents “Folds, Gestures, Movement” by Jenniffer Omaitz. This solo exhibition includes paintings by Omaitz that were created from 2015-2018 and will be on view at the Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center from December 7, 2018 through March 30, 2019. An opening reception will take place on Friday, December 7 from 5-8 p.m. during the First Friday Art Walk in downtown Kent.
“Folds, Gestures, Movement: Works from 2015-2018” consist of a breadth of paintings from two ongoing series; “Solid Movement” and “Folding Gesture” by Kent State M.F.A. Painting alumna, Jenniffer Omaitz. “Solid Movement” is an investigation into gesture and its ability to encapsulate time and psyche, fuse internal and external, and record conceptual state changes in solidified form. “Folding Gesture” explores changes in spatial order that appear fractured or fragmented. These states can remain calm or reconfigure coherence in the painting.
