I paint from the “inside out” using mixed media and collage...
I believe this process brings out my truest self.
I paint the richness within and the emotions of a complicated, layered world.
There is something bigger than the material world working with me. This connection is the life force in all art. The act of painting and expressing myself through art is honoring this connection. When you engage with the art openly, you will feel it too.
With a lifelong interest in the creative merging of art and crafts, Jennifer Perlmutter’s career began with gilding, paint and other media. She produced chinoiserie, artwork and deep, layered finishes on high-end furniture. Much of this work has been featured in LA’s Pacific Design Center and in the homes of celebrities and art collectors worldwide.
By 2001, Perlmutter devoted herself to fine art, exploring metal leaf, watercolor, acrylics and oils. She ultimately found her niche in mixed media on wood and canvas, which she continues to use as her predominant medium today. In 2011 Perlmutter’s TED Talk explored the connection between art and innovation in a 10-minute talk titled, Begin Where You Are. In 2014 she established Jennifer Perlmutter Gallery in Lafayette, CA For 8 years she represented a robust roster of artists with countless exhibits and programming. Her efforts won her the local honor of Marquis Business Person of the Year.
Her art has been collected internationally and shown in New York, Beverly Hills, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Her vision and strong command of application techniques led to commissions from several premier destinations including The Mirage and Hilton hotels in Las Vegas, Seoul’s Traum Haus and Toronto’s Casino Niagara. Most recently the artist’s paintings were included in the prestigious De Young Museum Open. The expansion of her gallery into the art destination village, Carmel by the Sea, allows for a range of work to be seen year round.
