IN THE SPIRIT
“In the Spirit” is a collection of Abstract Expressionism and Color Field paintings by Jeanne Pellegrino. The series harnesses the expressive language of color, both gentle and vibrant, to evoke emotional responses from viewers. Inspired by divine revelation, most works are abstract. Pellegrino’s art reveals the intimate handiwork of the creator breathing life upon canvas.
About the Artist
Born with a natural love for art, Jeanne Pellegrino paints with an intensely personal approach to a subjective statement in an abstract form. Many times, in the pure abstract form, lines, colors, and shapes become the subject of the work. In some cases, nature, music, or divine spirituality become the essence of the painting. Her most recent works are poured paintings, some on Plexiglas, allowing for strength, movement, and emotion. There are elements of controlled and uncontrolled “happenings” as the paint takes on its own life and direction.
