A 20 year retrospective featuring J.J. Mahoney’s artwork. The colors are vibrant! When Ms. Mahoney visited Arizona for the first time in 1951, she saw the beauty of the wide-open sky and stars like lanterns. The sun came up and turned the scene into technicolor. She had stepped into her future . . . This is a catalog of 22 of her paintings. Each painting has a small commentary by Jean. She lives and paints in Sedona, Arizona. Mahoney is known for her dramatic, large scale landscapes in oil. Even though she has a flower series, a figure series, and a horse series, the canyon landscape of the Colorado Plateau has become the major motif of her paintings. These landscapes contain all the elements of her huge originality; the spontaneous brush strokes, the inventive shapes, lambent color, and monumental scale of work and vision. Mahoney’s distinctive style that bridges realism and abstraction uses color and structure to share with the viewer the spiritual content of experiencing the miracle of nature and life. The pictures in this book can easily be framed and displayed.
