The art of Jeanne Masoero is instantly recognisable. After her formative years spent in Italy and then London, where she was a graduate of the Slade, Jeanne Masoero has followed a long path of searching technical and spiritual development with an unshakable individuality.
Her concern with colour, light and spatial depth has been evident from the great clouds and glowing bars of colour of the first London exhibitions at the Angela Flowers Gallery and the Hayward, to the mature work where, using her own unique method of composition, she creates thousands of tiny grains of colour which – seeming themselves to hover between matter and energy, colour and light – cluster, collide or stream out like galactic organisms across a pure white field of cosmic space.
“As you will know, I found the work very interesting and thought-provoking; and I found sympathetic what might be termed its complex aesthetic – at once abstractly spare and minimal, and pictorially complicated and allusive.”
Mel Gooding, letter to the artist, 2001
“the work comes across as unearthly”
