Janet Hudachek Artist Statement and Biography


Artist Biography

I am an ardent Frank Lloyd Wright fan and have been influenced by his work all my adult life.
My home and it’s furniture that I built are inspired by his work. Lately this influence
has spread to my artwork.

My most recent influence is a book of FLW floor plans that I received as a Christmas present.
The floor plans were of single level homes however, they appeared as 3 dimension drawings.
After studying these I began to use the same 60 degree angles in my artwork, to bring about an illusional
effect where the perspective changea as you scan the work.

I find it interesting as I move toward the abstract rather than the representational the difference
of working from a reference and creating your own reference in your head and vision.
This is where the creativity starts.
