Jen Wink Hays paints with the canvas flat on her studio table, peering down into its emergent world like a bird in the sky. Playful and beguiling, her paintings and works on paper induce a sense of wonder, curiosity, and even elation. It is a feeling akin to looking out of the airplane window flying high above the clouds, perhaps en route to a favorite place. The eye searching, the mind wandering, and the heart dreaming, hence the title to her first show: Vacationland.
“Miami is the city I have returned to again and again over the years to recharge and reset. It has special significance for me and I associate it with optimism and renewal. As I set out to create the work for this show, I noticed an instinctive brightening and energizing of the color palette that reflects my feelings about this place."
