Jan Chenoweth

Artist Statement Submitted 2017

My Fragment series represents my visual and emotional response to upheavals, man-made and natural, that seem to be occurring around us at an alarming rate. I see lives turning upside down and then moving instinctively into survival mode. There is an energy found in the chaotic aftermath. Not an energy we respond to consciously, but one that keeps keeps us going nonetheless. Like a good many artists my works are filtered through my experiences, beliefs and emotions. These panels are abstracted views of bits of remaining color that I see on the surface of rubble left by bombings, tornadoes, tsunamis and other disasters. They are also an acknowledgement of lives lost and lives finding their way to persevere in their changing world.
