A Look Inside ‘Ashes to Snow’ by Keisha Lambert
Tinney Contemporary is excited to share with you the latest works of Nashville artist Jane Braddock in her series titled ‘Ashes to Snow.’ Braddock has a multi-disciplinary history within the arts, starting as a Textile Designer and Colorist in New York City. The omnipresent grid within her work is well-established in her mind years before Braddock ‘picks up the brush’. Due to history within the textile arts, Braddock has always had a keen eye for color. This has also catalyzed her use of text as a pattern firstly, then slipping and sliding into carefully cultivated words and phrases. In her latest body of work, there is a softer, feminine and poignant palette at hand. Tied within her mark-making and texture, is the act of controlled repetition alongside works freely poured beaming a more liberated feel.
