This contemplative series of new paintings explores the contrasts and tensions created between the identifiable, “real” world of water in the natural landscape, and a decidedly abstract version of water, reducing it to its elemental form.

 

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.  Janice Sugg’s painting style builds imagery using layers. Her technique interweaves textures, blending color with subjective atmosphere. She paints using unpredictable palettes--a spectrum of color that often challenges well-worn clichés (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.
