Parris Jaru
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bedford-Stuyvesant

Media:Painting;
Genre:Abstract;


ARTIST STATEMENT: I started painting at a early age using Oils to paint landscapes recapturing my childhood living in Jamaica surround by the ocean and hills. Although those days were very satisfying I soon moved on to Oils, Oil Pastels and Acrylics creating abstract works with the idea of interpreting the world around me, or how I see the world That opened me up to unlimited possibilities of creation, and introduced me to Plant Herbs in powder form. I create with Plant Pigment Powder because these materials gives me an idea of God as when I began as a child, understanding from my Grand Parents that the land around me is a result of the direct artistic development of something higher then ourselves. When I began Painting with this medium It opened a very natural style with all earth tones and no vibrancy, later I found with the Herbs at the base and Acrylics on top I could achieve those popping colors I’ve had when using Oils, what I’ve always been interested in. My current series is a testament to my evolution as an artist, mixing abstract and abstract figurative with a vibrancy of color and movement. Parris Jaru
