Window On Hudson Presents Jeannie LoVullo “Celestial Existence”

Window On Hudson
presents Jeannie LoVullo “Celestial Existence” on display now through May 3, 2021. Jeannie LoVullo has created her largest, most complex paintings to date for this multi-dimensional and energetic exhibition. At the center of the installation are several intricately painted three foot mandalas, each bursting with patterns, color and texture. These large discs are suspended above a variety of other equally detailed canvases and painted objects.

LoVullo explains, “With my art I try to express positivity. I want to create a world of vibrant colors and fantasy. When I paint within a circle the viewer can not find a beginning or an end. There is only a continuous image reminding us that everything in life is connected. I fill the paintings with intricate details in order to remind us that life is full of many little moments. Unless you take the time to look closely at these details, these moments, they may go unnoticed. I paint every day, striving to share my vision of a world full of love, passion, whimsy, depth, beauty,
honesty, and laughter.”

Jeannie LoVullo was born and raised in Ghent, NY. She began drawing portraits at an early age and soon moved onto experimenting with pastels and charcoal. After highschool she took a course at Columbia Greene Community College in the hopes of learning new artistic techniques. Instead, she helped the other members of the class improve their skills. More self-guided education followed as she began taking jobs painting signs and wall murals for local businesses. This experience sparked the interest in her preferred medium: acrylics. The rich colors and fast
drying time invited her to paint daily.

Now, LoVullo spends most of her time striving to express positivity in her paintings with whimsy and vibrant colors. Her paintings are usually not planned out in advance. Instead, she prefers to let the creativity flow freely. She works daily in her home studio with the support of her husband Jason, son Alex, and dogs, Mocha, Little Moo, and Daisy.
