Gallery 2112 proudly presents Drawing with Paint. A solo exhibition of recent paintings by local Washington, DC artist Jeanne Cosimano. The new paintings have a sensibility that at first feel out of focus. Looking at one of her paintings you may not be able to identify the subject; it could be this, or it could be that.

But if you allow your eyes to relax and your vision to blur, you may suddenly see the painting clearly. Snap back into focus and you have a new understanding of, and appreciation for the work that’s entirely your own, coming from your imagination or perhaps somewhere deep in your memory. Cosimano enjoys hearing and absorbing viewers’ interpretations of her work just as much as she enjoys sharing her own perspective.

Whether a line drawing, watercolor, gouache, or oil on canvas, Jeanne’s work always starts with observations from life. “I delight in the complexity of a still life – I remember a face, imagine a landscape, or a distant dream.” Throughout her career, she has produced landscapes, figural studies, and still life in equal measures. She allows mediums and subject matters to ebb and flow over time.

For this exhibition, the artist has chosen to showcase her remarkable, rarely-seen works on paper, with a limited number of oil paintings to highlight the through-lines between the lighter, more impulsive drawings and her more disciplined oil paintings.
