Janice Sugg is a Colorado native now living and working in the Boulder/Longmont area. She has been a Colorado artist for more than 25 years. Her painting style builds imagery using layers. Her method interleaves textures, blending color with subjective atmosphere. She paints using unpredictable palettes--a spectrum of color that often challenges well-worn cliches (the sky is blue, the land is green, etc.). The resulting layers are successively wiped and refined revealing a composite of underlying design--the result of colorful swathes of braided paint unfolding and enfolding the values within her palette. Indeed, her surprising use of color has become a distinctive attribute of her work. Her imagery portrays a powerful sense of landscape, often working with the concept of the horizon. Many of her landscapes include birds, as well as bison and horses.

 

 

"My newer work pieces together the fragmentary; the broken; the partially concealed; a delicate improvisation; contrasting and blending modern urban life and landscape. When I organize the space in my compositions, horizontal banding and chromatic impressions built from the landscape often come into play. Soft blues, greens, golds, and whites inspire peaceful contemplation."
