Jamie Blankenship

The natural environment, my family, and the place I live are the core of my art. I work with the abstraction of local flora – layering color and texture of branches, leaves, grass, and flowers. These forms of nature become a delicate and translucent system of captured vignettes that forge new landscapes. Nature provides me with a calmness in an otherwise busy world. Yet, I also crave intimacy and relationships with other people. My passion for nature and connection with people has led me to explore how the two are interconnected. I resonate with Rebecca Solnit as she says, “The landscape is not scenery, but the spaces and systems we inhabit, a system our own lives depend upon.” 1 1.
