Jule Korneffel

Jule Korneffel’s abstract paintings focus on the application of color and feature minimalist mark-making over a visible underpainting. She views this process of layering the picture plane as a filter for her experience as she arrives at the precise forms and colors for each work. Korneffel’s practice draws inspiration from both Italian Renaissance painters as well as the intuitive and open-layered style of the American tradition.
