"My work originates from personal memory or specific moments from the past. Family tragedy fuels the painting's undertones of loss and turmoil. Use of personal situations creates a greater connection between the work and myself, and then transpires to audience members who may relate through a common experience. Interior, domestic spaces are important to the development of compositions and the amplification of poignant tension. In them, color is used to communicate ambiguous narratives created, and then the viewer may piece the narrative together through hidden symbolism. The redefined image is essential to my process because in the past I had no control over traumatic situations. Careful manipulation of the paint allows me to find control over that moment and or situation." -Jessica Loosenhort
