"Erotica III" -Jill Logan
The first thing that caught my eye was the color. The blending of pastels with the rich colors of the flowers, vegetation,and the underlying earth tones. However as I looked more, I was again astonished by the implications that seemed to be jumping out at me. The plants and flowers, in fact, the earth was reaching and entwining this young beautiful woman. As if the earth itself wanted to be part of her or wanted her to be part of IT! Both becoming part of each other… Deep!!
Jill Logan says about her own works, "An interesting phenomenon has emerged over the years I have been painting whereby something makes its appearance that was previously hidden beneath the linear view of the subject. This "something" seems to be the very piece that breathes the life force into each object and from there emerges a unique and individual personal stamp. I am fascinated with catching this "something" in its purest essence and reproducing it in color, form and emotion."
You may be wondering why my featured artist has a name like Jill Logan on a website called Mexico Culture and Cuisine. Well actually I was visiting a great little pueblo called Todo Santos in the Baja Sur for my next webisode
(stay tuned) and wandered into this gallery that said "Jill Logan Galeria".
I was totally blown away. Her gallery is next to the Hotel California on the main street. You cannot miss it. It is red and yellow with a wonderful broken tile mosaic of a red tree of life winding over an arch. Ms. Logan moved from Laguna Beach California where she had lived for 20 years to Todos Santos in 1998.
Jill started painting as a young girl where she was one of 9 children. She started taking art classes in elementary school that continued through high school and then the University of Utah, and University of California Irvine. Ms. Logan now resides permanently in Todo Santos.
