‘Night Frisbee’ depicts shadowy figures throwing glow in the dark disks around in that half-light of twilight. The setting is a park, situated between a pristine moonlit lake and a Gotham-style city. Wind blows the protagonist’s hair toward the lake, blocking a piercing gaze that would have been directed at the viewer. Red-orange orbs of color stand in for street lamps. The color is designed to create a physiological response in the viewer, adding to the perception of the piece.
Jazz-Minh Moore graduated with her BFA from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, and has just finished her Masters of Fine Art degree at California State University, Long Beach. Since moving to Long Beach, Jazz Minh’s work has addressed a balance between nature and culture, representation and abstraction, color and form. Though her work can be described as urban, there is always a bit of the Oregon woods she grew up influencing her subject matter and her style of painting.
