“Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are 100s of ways to kneel and kiss the earth”

 “Handheld images arrive in nanoseconds. Super human art installations challenge market economies. Still, I maintain an old-fashioned affair with paint. Love and longing fuel my quest for meaning. Memory, beauty and desire shape literal and figurative landscapes. In the liminal space between representation and abstraction, I paint to know, to understand, to celebrate. To dissolve dualities and ease tensions.” An accomplished academic, Dr. Jennifer Pazienza is a retired art education professor, whose CV is filled with scholarly articles published in academic journals, projects related to critical analysis, art education and research, awards and accolades. Yet Jennifer creates paintings that are tangible and emotive, paintings that invite and encourage contemplation in a chaotic world. Originally a Jersey girl from an Italian-American family in Bloomfield, the last 25 years has seen her painting from her beloved home and studio on Keswick Ridge in New Brunswick, Canada where she lives with husband Gerry Clarke and their dog Mela.  Her extensive exhibition record includes shows in Canada and the US. Her work is held in Public, Private and Corporate Collections in Canada, the United States and Italy.
