Jean Jack

April 5-30

   The open road reveals images for my work. I set out with my camera in an adventurous frame of mind and criss-cross the country.

   Often it is on the fast moving interstate where I discover, quite by accident, the perfect simplicity of a farmhouse or a barn. I am not interested in the details as much as the abstractions, the way the afternoon sun falls off a slanting roof or tall forsaken grass cradles an old structure or stairs that once led to a seaside path now lead nowhere at all. The challenge is to catch the image with my camera from this inconvenient backstage angle.

   America’s heartland influences the bulk of my work – utilitarian structures that have a weathered history are a more hauntingly lonely expression than the congestion of suburban or city life. Shapes occurring by circumstance intrigue me far more than deliberate artifice.
