Found and Invented Construct
April 7 - April 30, 2005
The Elizabeth Leach Gallery is very pleased to present the first solo show of Northwest painter Jaq Chartier. Chartier is based in Seattle and exhibits her work in New York at the Schroeder Romero Gallery in Brooklyn as well as other venues around the United States. Chartier has been included in national group shows because of her unique approach to painting and the blending of science and art in her work. Her work was reviewed in the March 2004 issue of Art Forum.
Chartier’s technique pushes the limits of paint and light, and explores patterns that are influenced by science. She is recognized for having developed a new genre combining the ephemeral qualities of beauty and the excitement of experimentation.
Photographers’ View: Found and Invented Constructs, will continue in the gallery during April to enable the Portland audience to see this important exhibition of internationally known artists including: Richard Misrach, Sam Taylor-Wood, Nan Goldin, Peter Hujar, and Adam Fuss. West Coast Artists Robert Lyons, Pipo and Christopher Rauschenberg as well as Nathan Sutton and David Hilliard are also on exhibit.
