Upcoming Show

Earth, Sky and in Between - Janice Sugg
January 11th - March 10th, 2019

Ochre Pond

The oil paintings of Janice Sugg occupy a unique position in the genre of Western Landscape. Her concept of horizon imagery portrays a powerful sense of earth blending with sky. She interleaves textures, blending color and a subjective atmosphere within her imagery. She paints using unpredictable palettes—a spectrum of color that often challenges well-worn clichés (the sky
is blue, the land is green...). 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.

Janice Sugg is a full-time career-level artist whose work hangs in public and private collections both nationally and internationally. Primarily a self-taught oil painter, she studied at the Loveland Academy. She has exhibited in solo and group shows. Sugg was invited to teach and lecture at the Devonshire Art Center in Illinois. She is represented by Mirada Fine Arts, Indian Hills, CO, Mary Williams Fine Arts, Boulder, CO, Lovetts Gallery, Tulsa, OK, and Sorrel Sky Gallery, Durango, CO; Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her oil paintings were recently featured in Mountain Living Magazine, and Luxe magazine and Denver Life magazine 2018 designer show house.
