Jackie Gendel paints luminous and mysterious portraits of people who appear to have floated out of, or into, paintings by Picasso, Matisse, Chagall and other masters in the history of art. Simultaneously abstract and representational, Gendel’s paintings embody the artist's creative process in which figures or images appear, get lost, and then reappear, often transformed. Gendel won the 2007 Academy Award in Art from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Richard Dixon Welling Prize and the Yale Norfolk Teaching Fellowship at Yale University where she received her MFA in 1998, and the Milovich Award at Washington University in St. Louis, MO where she was an Eliot Scholar and received her BFA in 1996. Gendel has exhibited in solo and group shows throughout the U.S. and internationally.
