Jean Arena has worked in Art for her entire life. From her BA in Art to a career as an Art Director in Advertising to portrait painting and now landscapes as well.
As a student at The Art Students League of New York for 6 years she was taught to paint the light. “Once I was able to embody this concept in my work it was as if the portraits and landscapes emerged more easily in my paintings.”
Now, since since she has been living and painting in her home studio in Remsenburg, she has moved beyond figures and portraits. Surrounded by the landscape and lighting that has been a beacon for artistsfor centuries, she has turned toward plein air painting of landscapes, while not entirely giving up the figure. Recalling JMW Turner’s journey from realism to abstraction Arena expresses an excitement about exploring new directions. “I eagerly await where they will lead me and what will be revealed on my canvasses.”
Her paintings have been shown at Ad Agencies, The Art Students League, The Remsenburg Academy, The Quogue Library, The East End Arts Gallery, Riverhead Town Hall, The Westhampton Library Art Studio Tour, and on the cover of Dan’s Papers, 2019.
