Ethel Jimenezis a native New Yorker who was seduced by San Francisco and moved west several years ago. Reflected in her photography is an interest in the urban landscape and abstract themes. She shoots ordinary scenes and objects that she encounters during the day and focuses on color, texture, shadow and light to produce abstract images. Her work has been auctioned for the benefit of the Mexican Museum in San Francisco, Visual Aid, Artspan and other non-profit organizations. Her work has been exhibited in New York and San Francisco and can be found in private collections across the country. The National Association of Women Artists recently accepted Ethel as a member and exhibited her work at their gallery in New York.

Artist Statement

I find that it is not necessary to travel to foreign cities to view ruins imbued with history. Alcatraz has been an ongoing project of mine because the stories that the buildings tell draw me back again and again. Everywhere are reminders of the former occupants and what life was like. During the daytime, the island is striking. At night, even more so. As you walk around the ruins on a moonlit night, the island takes on an eerie quality. The wind, and damp, cool night only add to the mood. The night has a transformative quality that gives Alcatraz a certain mystery and allure. The island could be worlds away from the lights of San Francisco. ‰ÛÓ Ethel Jimenez
