Jenny Laden

Jenny Laden Adina (armchair) 2004 watercolor on Mylar 42" x 32"

I've been looking at Jenny Laden's work for a few years, and it's never looked as good as it does now. Gorgeous. She has a show right now at Jeff Bailey and it runs until December 23. These images and those on the gallery site itself only hint at the beauty of her paintings. They have to be seen directly. Her beautiful subjects are described with great delicacy and clearly with much love, and her medium leaves the still-liquid colors of their features floating without any ground whatsoever.

The color shown below in the photo representing a detail of "Ann (sweater)" comes closest to that in the work itself.
