This week I had the pleasure of visiting the studio of Bushwick based painter, Jodie Manasevit.
In Manasevit's abstract work nuanced, spirited color combinations, and segmented forms are enhanced by a varied application of paint. Taken in as a whole these elements converge to produce a rich, frantic visual experience that never wholly masks the planning and consideration that are crucial to their making.
Manasevit received an MFA from Hunter College in 1985. She has mounted one person exhibitions at the Worchester Art Museum, Diacono Fine Arts in Boston, and at White Columns in New York, among other venues.
Currently Manasevit is represented by Berry Campbell in New York, NY.
