Jade Peters



The structural stability and architectural artistry of buildings, houses, and manmade structures are things that I greatly admire when visiting a certain location. The works within my series “Framework,” are technical studies of architecture from photographic references of buildings that I have drawn inspiration from in my life. Within certain areas of space that are framed by the windows and openings of every structure, I contrast vivid hues of color. I work with a process that combines contour line and expressive watercolor that embodies the essence of these buildings. The contrast of architectural drawing with the varying hues contained within these specific enclosures creates a space that is both empty and full, chaotic and exact. The works within this series are visual tributes to the dichotomy of stability and fragility of human emotion.

Absolutely stunning artwork! The details and amount of work are mind-blowing. What really captures my interest in these pieces are the openings — that which is enclosed versus that which is spacious. It reminds me of the symbolism of the windows in Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour.” Jade Peters is showing her viewers the gateway to freedom.

Congratulations Jade…amazing work! Love Gt.Aunt Lorette P.S. you gave me a tour of all of your ‘jade’ plants in your younger days. I knew then that you had great potential. Keep up the good work!

Congratulations Jade. So proud of your beautiful work. The juxtaposition of nature with the unnatural, the straight angular starkness against the diffusion of colour is really poignant. Happy future arting!!

Congratulations Jade! This work highlights the possibility that Humans can compliment Nature in their undertakings. I appreciate the minimalism in this work, which is imbued with a sense of wonder and hope. Like we’re being given a space in which to breathe.
