"Using landscape and the nuances of atmospheric conditions, I simplify, clarify and reduce that which touches me deeply, to simple form and color, to recreate what I see and experience in its visual essence.

"It is my intention to create on a two-dimensional surface that 'reality' which is experienced more than seen. That which is beyond the material and which allows one to rise above and go beyond the limits of the physical. It is my hope that my paintings speak the universal language of the mind/spirit which uses no words but which is capable of transporting one to places they know exist but do not know how to reach.

"My process is one of layering the sheerest of acrylic tints, mixed with a transparensizing agent on to gessoed paper, thereby building subtle plays of color. The final result is a smooth, clean finish, but one which resonates and glows."

Jacqueline Joy Sferra Rada, a native of New York, lives and works in both Manhattan and Long Island. She has spent much of her life on Long Island, both summering on its beaches and escaping to the solitude of those same beaches for Fall and Winter retreats. Ms. Sferra Rada began her formal art studies after graduation from high school at The Brooklyn Museum Art School and then received a B.A. in Fine Arts from Hunter College, NYC. In 1990 she was selected to participate in the Masters Painting Program IV at Long Island University/Southampton Campus. In September 2000 she was a participant in the A.I.R. (Artist in Residence) program at the Nantucket School of Art & Design in Massachusetts.

Notable among her exhibitions are the Albright-Knox Members Gallery in Buffalo, N.Y., which selected her work for two consecutive years for the annual New York Artists Exhibition, and the Birmingham Museum of Art. She exhibits regularly both in New York City galleries and other NYC venues such as the Cornell Medical Complex Library, Columbia University Teachers College, and the Cork Gallery at Lincoln Center.

Her work is in a number of private collections. Ms. Sferra Rada maintains a studio in SoHo. Sferra Rada is active in the New York art community where she is Chair of the Friends of the Hunter College Art Programs, board member and Treasurer of Artists Talk on Art, a member of the Federation of Modern Painters and Sculptors, as well as other several informal artists’ critique and networking groups that meet regularly in the City such as Feast for the Eyes and the NY Artists Circle.
