Cy’s Ghost (Predella)
This painting in earth tone colors features the artist's signature mark-making and layering of matte acrylics. The artist's work focuses on both the origin and making of pigments. Jule Korneffel’s work combines an abstract style with a minimalist sensibility. By leaving her underpaintings visible, the artist reveals a process of reduction and layering that also acts as a filter.
The artist views the picture plane as a lived experience—what she refers to as "floating through its creation"— which allows her to arrive at precise forms and colors. Korneffel derives her technique of multiple layering and matte surfaces from her European Academia background—in particular, Italian Renaissance painters—while the artist's intuitive and open-layered approach relates to a more American painting tradition that draws from internal dialogue.
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.
