New Zealand artist Claudia Jowitt’s sculptural paintings are mesmerizing in detail and subtle application of color. There are whites that become roseate, lemon yellow, mauve, pistachio green, recalling spun-sugar, marshmallows or sorbets fit for the tables of Versailles.
Jowitt uses a variety of techniques to create her works. Aside from an achingly delicate and subtle palette, the application of the materials is unique. Acrylic and oils are not only applied with a brush, they are manipulated with cake-icing sets, spatulas, tile-grouting combs, and an expanse of other kitchen implements.
