Contemporary Impressionist Caroline Jasper’s paintings are “always about the light," says the artist. "It can dramatize the most ordinary places." Red is her trademark. Jasper’s colorful scenes begin on red ground, which serves to invigorate visual interaction against loosely applied color marks. Her color expertise plays out in all of her work, from large- scale studio canvases to small plein air paintings.
