Jess Hurley Scott: Trinity Collection show EXTENDED through September!

I’ve been so busy working I’ve had really ZERO time to post, but I wanted to share that my Nantucket show at Trinity Collection has been extended! I’ll have my work there showing through the end of September! It has been a great experience so far and looking forward to spending some more time out on the island! If you are out on the island to enjoy a little early fall and haven’t yet gotten a chance to see, stop by 50 Main Street and say ‘heeeyyy’!

While the heat has finally broken, it seems real Fall weather is still not here yet so I’ll be in the water getting new stuff as much as I can! Hopefully we’ll get a few storms to blow some rollers our way soon!

This painting which I just completed is the largest I’ve completed yet. At 18″h x 44″w it has a great presence and I’m loving the detail and impact I can get at a larger scale. Entitled, ‘Sunder and Spray’, it’s a wild wave breaking in different directions as it slams into the shore.

It’s messy, angry, which was only amplified when I broke the image up into different layers of paint and acrylic. There’s no horizon, no actual shore, just the layered rolling water.

As with all of my paintings, the piece is layers of acrylic spaced and suspended in acrylic framing. The space between the layers allows the light of the external environment play into the work while having it totally encased.

“Sunder and Spray” is also joining me on the ferry to Nantucket for my artist showcase this weekend at Trinity Collection with jewelry artist Kerrin Falk Forsyth of Falk Jewelry Designs. It’s quite an organic and fun collaboration. I love that custom surf boards, exclusive watch designs, precious corals and stones and these waves will be all in one space.

The show runs from Friday, December 5th through Sunday, December 7th at The Trinity Collection. They are at 50 Main Street, and we’ll be exhibiting from 10 am to 5 pm. Kerrin and I will be serving a little holiday cheer if you’re on the island and want to stop in to visit!

‘The Wave Falters’, at Nantucket Christmas Stroll

Thrilled to finally assemble this new painting this weekend titled, “The Wave Falters”. It is a larger piece, at 21″h x 30″w, but  I was fascinated with the texture and translucency of this shot so having a larger scale to work with was key.

The piece is comprised of 3 layers of clear acrylic paneling that is entirely hand painted and framed in custom routered acrylic framing. I love how the light moves through this painting and the foam takes on so much emotion and character.

I’ll be bringing this along to the Nantucket Christmas Stroll this weekend, December 5-7th at The Trinity Collection. I’ll be spending the weekend doing a weekend artist showcase with the fabulous Kerrin Falk Forsyth of Falk Jewelry Designs. This will be among a dozen or so pieces that I’ll have on hand for the show.

The Trinity Collection is at 50 Main Street, open from 10 am – 5 pm, if you’re on the island I hope you’ll stop in to see us!

Cheers!
