Jayne-Anne Mulholland

Jayne-Anne Mulholland was born in Utah. She has a BS in Painting and Drawing and a BFA in Theatre Studies, both from the University of Utah.

Mulholland uses soluble and insoluble paints to create her work. She says, I am fascinated by the alchemistic aspects of painting. Miracles that are beyond me seem to come from the reactionary process.

Like a scientist might conduct experiments with beakers in a lab, by mixing and creating new chemical compounds that are utterly unique from but dependent on their original and separate chemistry, I document these interactions on canvas while encouraging this metamorphosis of media into an organic sense of line, texture, space, color, value etc. by stripping, sanding, scraping and eventually sealing the surface of each piece.
