Born in New York in 1964, Jodi Fuchs is an award-winning contemporary abstract painter living in Los Angeles. Her education about color and pattern came on the job while working as a decorative painter for 20+ years in Los Angeles. She's painted movie and music video sets (Barton Fink, Red Hot Chili Peppers), the homes of celebrities (Candice Bergen, Lily Tomlin, Bette Midler, Burt Bacharach, Patricia Arquette), as well as spa and resort properties (The Lodge at Vail, The Lodge at Pebble Beach).
Fuchs now focuses on creating modern abstract expressionistic pieces that have undeniable energy. Her medium is acrylic on canvas or panel and she often uses spray paint, ink, oil stick to enhance the work. It is Fuchs’ fascination with the pure creative force: understanding it, harnessing it and expressing it, that fuels her painting process. Years of inquiry into the metaphysical aspects of life have influenced her studio practice. This is where the act of creation is the muse. By following intuitive impulses, Fuchs creates work that speaks to the chaos and stillness (and the reconciliation of these two forces) that is inherent in the human experience.
