The Art Docents of Los Gatos were treated to a demo by Dallas artist Jennifer Lashbrook and her “Swatch Paintings” at JCO’s Place in February. Lashbrook creates collages using paint swatches that she gets by the forklift load. Through an extensive process of sorting by value and hue, she builds a palette for her pixelated images using squares of color fixed with rubber cement and clear acrylic onto gridded panels. This series at JCO’s were all famous, recognizable images from art history, and part of the fun is the process of recognition, but she also does landscapes and portraits which can be seen on her website .
