I come from a small town in the Deep South called Natchez, Mississippi. The history of the town is long and troublesome, and my family roots in Natchez are also long and troublesome. It is a place of contrasts, where multiple truths exist—there is much beauty, and much pain. There is also quicksand.

This painting is varnished, gallery-wrapped with black hand-painted edges and wired. Ships in a box.

About the Artist

"THROUGH THE ACT OF PAINTING, THE PAINTING HAPPENS.

My work is a balance of intention and chance—control versus surrender. Allowing a painting to develop, collaborating with the creative process rather than directing it, is the heart of my painting practice. If there is an overarching theme to my work, then it is about letting go; letting go of expectations, rules, desire, and fear. It requires a leap of faith, a willingness to fail, and a belief that the simple act of mixing paint and slathering it onto a canvas will eventually turn into something that touches truth.

Thoughtful abstract compositions invite creative thinking and more meaningful interactions with others. By showing up and being present to my own artistic practice, I feel connected to an authenticity that is bigger than myself. By sharing my work with others, I hope to inspire conversation that goes beyond image.

THROUGH THE ACT OF LIVING, LIFE HAPPENS." -Jessica Eichman
