Jeanette Ahlgren weaves colorful, luminous glass beads into structures inspired by landscapes and Native American textiles. Capturing and refracting light with ethereal and glowing forms. The use of glass seed beads allows her to explore the purity and strength of color as well as the combination of different colors. According to Ahlgren, the presence of low-intensity colors in her work, called Theory of Life, forces the viewer to look at the bright colors. The artist applies a method she calles the random dot bleed pattern, which allows her to create works with an air-brushed effect.

Ahlgren’s work has appeared in exhibitions in the US and abroad, including Japan, Denmark and France.
