Jennifer Pochinski is a Sacramento based painter who paints in a big, generous style. Although she is a representational artist, Jennifer works like an Abstract Expressionist, often covering an entire canvas in a single day with broad wet-on-wet brushstrokes. “I have to get my nerve up to paint,” she explains, “because I’m after the feeling of profundity that is normally found only in abstract art.” Growing up in Hawaii, and receiving her BFA from the University of Hawaii, Pochinski also lived and painted in Britain, Germany and Greece. Pochinski has studied under artists such as West Coast artist Pia Stern, who was a student of Elmer Bischoff at Berkley. Some consider her work to be firmly in the Bay Area Figurative movement amongst artists like Manuel Neri and Richard Diebekorn. Says Pochinski, “The search for content is an ongoing process. I like ordinary moments of things I know. But I want the physicality of the paint to be the story and I seek out subject matter that I can get lost in. My guilty pleasure is painting still lifes.”
