Paintings by Jennifer Hubbard

 

Jennifer Hubbard’s portrait and landscape paintings combine familiar subject matter with a striking use of color.  Whether it is a bright blue reflection on snow or a vibrant red wall in a portrait, the effect is compelling.  The accomplished looseness of her brush strokes add an immediacy and informal quality to her work. Many of Hubbard’s paintings are large format, creating an additional presence and impact upon the viewer.

 

Hubbard states, “By using the kind of visual grammar common to snapshot photography, such as harsh shadows thrown by flash lighting, I seek to evoke a sense of identification from the viewer that is stronger, and more reflexive, than the way he or she might normally relate to a painting.”.

 

Educated at the Mitchell School of Fine Arts and the Maryland Institute College of Art, Hubbard currently resides in Wolcott.
