Jennifer Lefort’s fresh approach to abstraction combines bold gestures, electric colours and spontaneous biomorphic forms together in a playful dance of her own distinctive style. Aptly examining the coexistence and codependence of formalism and expressionism, Lefort places the viewer in an open-ended narrative of colour field and pattern, structure and disorder – embracing intuition and accident in a chromatic exploration of abstract space. An ongoing play between chaos and order, the weightless compositions offer a place for poetic speculation, for fantasy and freedom in a fleeting transformative exchange.
