Description

Jessica Parker Foley's abstract landscape paintings are reperformances of intertidal ecosystem behaviors. By using the techniques of action painting alongside direct observation of the natural world, she creates work that mimics the world around her. Foley's paintings function with the same behaviors and inclinations of living systems: they do not mirror phenomenal nature, they are phenomenal nature.
