Janet Hudachek Artist Statement and Biography 


Artist Biography - Statement
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 changes 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 exhibition is a collection of 2-d pieces titled “Out of my Mind” because rather than working from reality I tend to work from principles, theories and experiments.  Learning to use the art of the angle and using color that makes the piece come alive and change perspective as the eye scans the subject. Working with the basic principles of color and angles to give the artwork depth.

 

My goal is to make the viewer question, think about what they are seeing and then smile.


This is where the creativity starts.
