Evergreen Washelli is pleased to present the next featured artist in our Art in the Columbarium series, Jesse Schwartz. Jesse is a Washington native, although he earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Art Institute of Boston. In his main medium of choice, oil, Jesse is able to create exquisite landscapes and still lifes. His artist statement is below.
Paintings that capture the rugged beauty of the Pacific Northwest. The landscape provides endless inspiration, whether it is a sunrise over a lake, or an abandoned building. Nature produces a never ending variation of shape, color and texture. Even painting the same scene over and over can change over the time of day/different seasons/weather. My landscape painting time is split between the studio, and on location. Still life paintings of quiet luminescence. The still life can be viewed in a few ways. You can view it in a purely aesthetic way, or read it as symbolism. The apple representing sin, fall from grace, earthly pleasures, knives betrayal, and so on. The still life has really endless possibilities. Food can be very evocative of memory. It is universal, so everyone can relate to it in some form or another. A picture of food can also produce synesthesia, you see an orange and feel an acidic tingle in the back of your mouth. See a glass of wine and remember a romantic evening, or maybe getting violently ill. And thus the painting of the everyday becomes intensely personal.
Jesse’s artwork will be on display beginning Saturday October 8th through December at Evergreen Washelli’s Columbarium. The Columbarium is located on the east side of 11220 Aurora Avenue North, and is open to the public Monday through Sunday from 9am to 5pm.
