Note On Rothko Via Bellini (Pieta)

This painting explores 20th-century American abstract painter Mark Rothko's deep earth tones. It also engages Italian renaissance painter Giovanni Bellini's meticulous use of thin layers of oil to create subtle hues that shine through darker tones. The artist's new body of work employs her signature mark-making and layering of matte acrylics to explore darker color tones prominent throughout Western art history. For Korneffel, the process of layering the picture plane works as a filter for her experience as she arrives at the precise forms and colors for each work.

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.
