DESCRIPTION

Dye, oil, enamel and acrylic on canvas | 2017
Jonni Cheatwood’s paintings describe the broad visual ideas stemming from still life, abstraction and minimalism. The graffiti-like scribbles, scratches and primitive colors of Cheatwood’s work is the controlled chaotic work of an erudite, expressionist.
“Process is everything for me as a painter. There has always been this game going on in my practice of balancing negative space and structure, which I love. I tend to use differing fabrics that I sew together to allow my paintings take a breath when they need to. I try to include everything I can within a canvas without overwhelming myself, as well as the viewer. For these works, I focused on the interaction with the viewer of the painting, as I want my audience feel involved. For example, when I write something within a canvas, make a mark, use a color, sew, or let my work roll around my studio floor, I'm interacting. I'm trying to convey an honesty by showing you the bones of this painting, as well as my process, and not just what's on the surface.”
