One has to study a painting by Janice Sugg at varying distances to truly appreciate the incredible artistry. From afar you are struck by the beautiful image; it is only upon close inspection the intricacy of texturing, wiping, blending and refining is revealed.
Raised in Denver, Colorado- Janice considers painting in the West to be her greatest privilege. The expansive horizons of the area frequently appear in her work both metaphorically and physically. A line or form will appear and disappear, shifting, blending, twisting and turning. Horizontal banding and chromatic impressions build from the emerging landscape interleaving textures and unpredictable color palettes converge, resulting in breathtaking scenes, much like Colorado views.
