Studio Visit: Jodie Manasevit

Late in August, I visited Jodie Manasevit's studio for the first time since 2013 (Bushwick Open Studios, 2013 post). The work has changed from the rich, Bonnard-like palette to a more elegant, subtle touch and coloration. So taken with her elegant studio filled with paintings and drawing studies, I did not photograph the work but looked, and talked, and looked some more. Manasevit generously shared these images at my request so I can share them with you.
Marooned, 2016, oil on canvas, 9 x 10 inches
Lu, 2016, oil on canvas, 11 x 9 inches
Wishful Thinking, 2016, 10 x 11 inches
Untitled, 2016, 10 x 8 inches
Pink, 2016, 10.5 x 8 inches

The group. Little chips of color, each gesture visible on the plane, with seasons, and neighborhoods, and all sorts of memories naturally conjured in the fields of these paintings.
