Janet Seifert:  Improvisation

My current series of paintings is based on abstract improvisation, a spontaneous yet contemplative approach to painterly expression born of abstract expressionism. Using gestural brushwork and the flowing elegance of fluid pigment, I create colorful compositions that realize moments in time.

   The paintings are an exploration of luminosity and aesthetics, colored with insights and notions of the moment. It’s alchemy of a certain sort, working with intuition and materials in a way that have no certain outcome. For me the process is a journey into the mysteries of creativity.

Inspiration arises from a medley of interests, including the stunning Hubble telescope photographs of the cosmos, and my own hiking and stargazing journeys in the farther reaches of northern California.
