Jeanette Fintz is an abstract painter, who resides and paints in Surprise, New York in the upper Hudson River Valley. She is also an arts writer and independent curator. Fintz filters nature through her urban sensibility - stretching color motifs towards the heightened and intensified palette often found in the realms of design and fashion. Her pieces have a rhythmic impact stemming both from her enjoyment of jazz and polyrhythms of Brazilian and Indian origin, which she sees displayed in the visual rhythms found in textiles and Islamic tile patterns. Ms Fintz has taught as an Assistant Professor of Art & Design, in the School of Design Strategies at Parsons the New School for Design for 17 years. At Purchase College, SUNY, Jeanette taught all levels of painting and drawing for 12 years as Assistant Professor in the BFA conservatory program.
Jeanette shows her work at the Garvey Simon Gallery, New York, NY, Fox Gallery, New York, NY, Geoffrey Young Gallery, Great Barrington MA, the Thompson Giroux Gallery, Chatham NY, and Cross Contemporary Gallery, Saugerties, NY.
