Beet Contemporary Crafts & Functional Art in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Jennifer Harroun-Jarrett
Beet Contemporary Crafts
& Functional Art in Charlotte, NC, will present the exhibit,
Pieces, featuring fiber art by Jennifer Harroun-Jarrett,
on view from Feb. 6 - 28, 2009.
Harroun-Jarrett's work is non-representational focusing on relationships among seemingly unrelated elements. This is accomplished using minimalist concepts along with visual influences of Japanese and American folk art and other primitive sources.
The multimedia constructions
integrate hand printed papers with patterned fabrics of various
textures. The intricate use of ties, strings, repetition, and
the grouping of elements into bundles provide a sense of organization
while the overall composition of shapes, colors and spatial relationships
generate Zen like aesthetic feelings in the viewer.
Artists influencing Harroun-Jarrett's work include Paul Klee, Henri Matisse, Hylarie McMahon, and Joan Miro.
