About the Artwork:
I hope to one day sit beside an old friend and dream of far off places.
Soft worlds of singing color and fleeting memory.
Gentle with structure and void of time.
A lost tomorrow that drifts on golden light in blue green water.
Harkening future sounds as the past cascades into a remote lagoon.
A ghost where once a shadow caught the light.
About the Artist:
Jeannie Lynn Paske is a self-taught artist from Portland, Oregon who creates introspective work under the name Obsolete World. Using a mix of watercolor, charcoal, pastel, graphite, varnish and ink, she designs richly textured illustrations of peculiar creatures in thought-provoking settings. The mysteries of life, loss and loneliness are recurring themes, and her compositions often focus on the strange and unexplained. Many of her pieces reference philosophy with a nod to both the melancholy and humorous. Her soft sparse environments suggest a warm, dreamlike state, and the emotional imagery paired with her poetic titles help to convey a sense of gentle curiosity in her work.
