Jean Macaluso, fine art photographer and painter, graduated from Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania with a degree in art and art history. Using her skilled eye, she creates using many different mediums including photography, functional art, upcycled furniture, pottery, and clay sculpture. Her artwork can be found in the United States, France, Australia, and the Netherlands in a variety of collegiate, private, and doctor’s office collections.
“Jean recently relocated here to the Lowcountry,” says Amy Wehrman, Art League Academy manager. “Her work shows off both vivid, abstract landscapes, and refurbished, upcycled furniture as beautiful works of functional art.”
Working with acrylic paint and resin, Jean captures nature’s essence by evoking the feelings of a landscape or still life through abstract forms, lines, and colors. Using her imagination, along with her own reference photos, she creates landscapes meant to take one to a different time and place.
Jean resides in Okatie, South Carolina, with her husband and golden retriever, Mylie.
Ebb & Flow: The Fluidity of Paint by Jean Macaluso will be on display August 1 through September 30. An artist's reception, free and open to the public, will be held on Wednesday, September 7 from 5-7pm.
