Laura Nugent creates non-representational, painterly works featuring imperfect pattern and fresh color relationships. Each painting is the story of its creation and in the narrative of these works, color is protagonist and patterned blocking is structure. “Sometimes easily coaxed in arrival, other times deeply flawed and messy, my works are the pure expression of my experience.”
For Jan Chenoweth art has been a life-long pursuit enriched by her formative years in South Florida and unquenched wanderlust. She was born in Miami Beach Florida in 1945 and after many stops along the way, now resides and works in Chattanooga, TN. Her BFA studies were primarily at the University of Illinois and Virginia Intermont College with a concentration in painting. She received her MFA in Studio Arts with a sculpture concentration from Florida State University. Her early years in the tropics provided a rich stimulus for the sense of color and texture that have remained a vital part of her art throughout her career. Colors, forms and structures have always been starting points for her art.
"My Fragment series represents my visual and emotional response to upheavals, man-made and natural, that seem to be occurring around us at an alarming rate. I see lives turning upside down and then moving instinctively into survival mode. There is an energy found in the chaotic aftermath. Not an energy we respond to consciously, but one that keeps keeps us going nonetheless. Like a good many artists my works are filtered through my experiences, beliefs and emotions. These panels are abstracted views of bits of remaining color that I see on the surface of rubble left by bombings, tornadoes, tsunamis and other disasters. They are also an acknowledgement of lives lost and lives finding their way to persevere in their changing world."
Stop by and see some of Jan's work in the gallery before the end of our August exhibition!
