Starting November 1st, Jun Pierpont Webster’s “Cubist Realist” painting will be on display at the Woodbury Public Library. Webster is having a reception for her work on the 3rd from 2:00-4:oo p.m., but her work will remain on display until the 30th.
Webster received a degree in painting from the University of Connecticut and has taught art in several Connecticut based organizations, including Artsplace of Chesire, Gallery 53 of Meriden, the Cheshire Academy, and in the Cheshire Public School System. She is also the member of multiple associations.
Webster discovered the style of “Cubist” painting at the New Britain Museum of American Art, where she was teaching. She was then inspired by the works of the contemporary artists Dawoud Bey and Martin Kine along with the painters Charles Demuth and Charles Sheeler. In her pieces, she uses several “Cubist” techniques, such as grids and overlapping images. Her clear design creates realistic, broken forms, varying perspectives, and energizing spaces. Even after working on it for years, she continues to love the unpredictability of the “Cubist” works.
