Jaq Chartier
Ultra Marine
New Paintings and Drawings About the Sea

May 2 - June 1, 2013
Jaq Chartier
Ultra Marine, Jaq Chartier’s new abstract paintings, are meditations on the sea and creatures living in coral reefs, with climate change as her subtext. Known for her rigorous Testing series, which explores scientific methods through experimentation with paint and process, Chartier has found an alternate body of work slowly coalescing in her studio over the past few years. This work springs from her interest in landscape, the natural sciences (especially biology), maps of the earth, weather and storms. Chartier finds visual and investigative connections in the early cyanotypes of British algae and seaweed by mid-nineteenth century artist Anna Atkins, who was an early photographer and botanist. She has continued developing her own custom formulas of deeply saturated inks, stains and dyes for use in these paintings and drawings. As such, the work remains connected to her continued exploration of the phenomena of materials, and incorporates elements of nineteenth-century art & science, color field painting, process art, and minimalism.

Jaq Chartier received her BFA from the University of Massachusetts (Amherst, MA) and her MFA at the University of Washington (Seattle, WA). She has exhibited nationwide at such venues as the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art (San Jose, CA), Zentrum Paul Klee (Bern, Switzerland), Kunst-Museum Ahlen (Ahlen, Germany), Henry Art Gallery at the University of Washington (Seattle, WA), Berkeley Art Museum at the University of California (Berkeley, CA), Seattle Art Museum (Seattle, WA), and Bellevue Art Museum (Bellevue, WA) Her works is included in many public and private collections, including those of the Schwartz Art Collection at Harvard Business School (Cambridge, MA), The Progressive Art Collection (Cleveland, OH), and the Tacoma Art Museum (Tacoma, WA).
