From Chaos to Art

Imagination with an edge. I’m trying to capture the magic of the paint after it hits the material.

I always work with paper or untreated linen and black paint. When I begin a new series, 10-20 pieces of paper where I spray and make paint blotches. The black paint has to have a good consistency – not too thick, not too thin. It has to “slide” over the paper. I don’t want the paper to pull the paint like paper towels do. I then go around and study the results for a few days, turning the paper this way and that. I am feeling, seeing the result, it could be animals and/or people who tell a story. One thing is a given – no animals or people are perfect. Our world and the people in it aren’t perfect, either, and this is something I show in my works. I strive to make it beautiful to be everyday imperfect.

My work is a kind of order out of chaos. The paint that runs into soft, organic shapes. Inside these shapes, birds, animals, people or parts of them emerge. They’re never ”perfect”! The contrast to the soft, organic shapes and figures are the static graphic patterns… from chaos to Art.

I want my paintings to appeal to people, to create a sense of both joy and wonder, to stimulate their imaginations and have my paintings create stories in the viewer’s mind.
The viewer starts to think and to wonder, asking why it looks the way it does, discovering a small, new detail. Imagination kicks in, and the viewer experiences their own little story in the painting.

Bio:
Jette Reinert (b.1960) was born in Viborg and now lives in Vejle, Denmark. Inspired by her artist mother, she has painted since childhood, taught by Viborg artist Lasse Windsløw. For over twenty five years, she worked as a graphic designer and illustrator, painting as a hobby, before she began studies at the Art Academy of Aarhus, which led to painting full time.
Artistically, Jette has evolved through several phases, painting slanting houses and Faroese landscapes and in the process, she developed her own unique style. Although she is inspired by Gustav Klimt, her style is all her own.
