Jenna Bauer- "Thunder Fields"
2007 & 2016
Oil on Canvas
Terminal 2, Near Gate E12
Thunder Fields is a landscape painting manifested as a twice-pixelated abstraction. The work is created through analog means, monoprints on canvas using a printing press. The muse for this work was a road trip Bauer took through Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Utah and Nevada, and the powerful but isolated storm systems in her midst.
About Jenna Bauer
Jenna Bauer lives and works in St. Louis, Missouri where she received her BFA in Painting from Webster University. She has maintained studios in Upstate New York and Hell’s Kitchen in New York City while she earned her MFA in Painting from Hunter College.
Her practice includes painting, printmaking, drawing, developing arts curriculum, teaching and establishing nonprofit art organizations and community projects, such as ArtScope and the Colorbridge Collective, two arts programs based out
of South St. Louis. In this featured work, Bauer approaches “the Loneliest Highway in America paired with the minimalist work pioneered by color theorists of the mid-twentieth century.”
With her use of color, light, straight lines and right angles, she creates what she describes as “a double pixilation of rolling thunder clouds, thriving poppies, cool soil, rolling hills, and luminous rays of light.”
