JAMIE KIRKLAND

Jamie Kirkland seeks to evoke a sense of limitless space, of expansiveness, stillness and calm in her paintings. Her work has been described as “minimalist abstract landscape.” Kirkland desires to speak to the viewer through simplicity and by reducing the landscape to shapes and forms, much the same way a poet expresses an idea in three lines of haiku. And just as traditional haiku contains a kigo, or season reference, her paintings reference seasonality with an economy of expression that is almost always atmospheric.

JENNIFER JL JONES

An exploration of beauty and energy, Jennifer JL Jones’ mixed media paintings are a meditation on the dichotomy of the existence of nature both as corporeal reality and intangible spirituality. Employing multiple layers of abstraction and combined mediums including a refined glazing technique, she creates rich, organic patinas that evoke universal emotional and physical connecting points for the observer. Layers of paint create a palimpsest quality to the work, elegant, ever-shifting paintings combining a poetic, sensual grace with consistently bold execution.

REJOICE! BREAKFAST BROWNIES ARE HERE TO MAKE YOUR MORNINGS BETTER

Eating a proper breakfast on weekdays just doesn’t happen for most people, including me. I am perpetually late, usually groggy, and often cranky, but I also demand coffee and sustenance as soon as I finally stop hitting snooze and get out of bed. That’s why a little breakfast meal prep can save my day.

A PIMMS CUP RECIPE TO START THE SUMMER RIGHT

You know what sounds like my ideal summer afternoon? Eating a ton of oysters and downing a few low-ABV, refreshing gin drinks that are a little bubbly, ever-so-slightly herbaceous, and adorned with lots of fruit and a shock of mint. Well that’s just the idea James Pimm had back in the 1820s (or the ’30s, you know how these historical things go…). The son of a farmer, he had gotten into the restaurant business and was running a popular London tavern serving mostly shellfish to his patrons. And the cocktail he created—the Pimm’s Cup—has remained a warm-weather classic for nearly 200 years.
