In winter 2017 Jennifer Moses was awarded a Jentel Artist Residency in rural Banner, Wyoming. She brought with her materials that were new to her process including Flashe Paint (a thick, water-based paint), Silver/Black Traditional Chinese Ink, and various kinds of paper. The meditative process of spreading the thick Flashe into defined shapes and the immediacy of the ink, along with the colors reflected in the changing hues of the Big Horn Mountains, inspired Moses' latest series, Work from Wyoming. The landscape realized itself in her paintings both directly and obliquely. Many of the interlocking shapes of these pieces stand in contrast to the openness of sky and rolling hills. They collide and interlock like a puzzle, but like the Wyoming landscape there is also open space, while some of the quirky and more implausible forms refer to snow formations carved by a wind strong enough to remold the hardened snow banks.
