Jennifer Valenzuela

My artistic process begins with exploring the natural environment of the island and getting a sense of the energy of my surroundings. I research and enjoy the discovery process of finding a profoundly moving olelo no’eau. I translate the meaning of that proverb into a visual representation that is simultaneously inspired by the magical landscapes of Hawaii. Inspired by the history of the Hawaiian people and of the land, I attempt to subtly educate the viewer on the depth of Hawaiian philosophies and culture, while celebrating the beauty of tropical landscape elements that can project the viewer into another world. I want to harness the feelings of a place and transport my viewer. My work hearkens back to a mid-century aesthetic and time, I play with images such as long-boards, wave patterns, mountains, tropical foliage, spacial relationships, and the physics of time and space.

I paint with oil on wood panel and often embellish my compositions with gold leaf, allowing elements of my initial charcoal markings to reveal my artistic process. There is much to be learned from ancient cultures that have a deep connection to the land, sea, and stars. I hope to engage my audience to further inquire and investigate quantum physics, sense of place, Hawaiian culture, and allow them to take a moment to enjoy the images, proverbs, paint applications, and simplicity of an imagined landscape where I morph time and spatial relationships into a magical contemplation of self and culture.
