Artist of the moment… Jennifer Bartlett

 

This artist is very prolific and I enjoy her many approaches to fun subject matter. The artist was born in 1941 in Long Beach California. The artist loves to combine realism and abstraction. Bartlett attended college at Mills College in California.

In 1981 the artist created a 200 foot mural for a Federal Building in Atlanta. The artist is included in many private and public collections. She is also in the collection of the Smithsonian and the MoMa in New York City.

She is known for flat houses painted in childlike manner. Really bright colors and simple shapes.

A brief less than 2 minute clip of the artist in her studio.
