FROM THE ARTIST'S STUDIO
In July 2010, art critic Victoria Donohoe wrote about Priest?s work in two Wilmington exhibitions for The Philadelphia Inquirer: “Priest deliberately blurs the boundary between painting and jazz in her Venezuelan Suite painted collages. These use form as a language of music... Seeing jazz as full of joy and energy, able to transform sadness, Priest uses it successfully here to create materialized movement in actual worlds of colored space.”

“Jazz: Edward Simon?s Venezuelan Suite #1-23” is a nearly five-year body of large paintings that Ellen Priest completed from 2006 to 2010. Pianist/composer Edward Simon?s music brings Venezuelan song forms and rhythms into jazz in a four-movement piece commissioned by Chamber Music America. “Jazz: Edward Simon?s Venezuelan Suite #16” is based on the Suite?s 3rd movement, composed in the style of a Venezuelan waltz. In February 2007, Edward Simon’s 7-piece jazz Ensemble Venezuela performed the full Suite in the Main Gallery at the Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College in Collegeville, Pennsylvania in the midst of Ellen Priest’s solo exhibition, “Ellen Priest: Jazz Paintings on Paper: Improvisations on the Venezuelan Suite”. This exhibition included the first ten pieces in her series.
