VALERIE JAUDON (b. 1945)

 
Jaudon was one of the founders of the Pattern and Decoration movement. With a foundation of feminist theory, Jaudon repositioned what were considered trivial art forms and minor visual images.

Jaudon interweaves shades of red into ornate arabesques recalling gothic stonework, celtic knots, and Islamic calligraphy. The crispness of the lines against the impasto and the layering of red tones makes it appear that the lines are carved like stone.

Jaudon a été l'un des fondateurs du mouvement Pattern and Decoration. En s'appuyant sur la théorie féministe, Jaudon a repositionné ce qui était considéré comme des formes d'art triviales et des images visuelles mineures. Ces formes et symboles ont été relégués en raison de leur association avec le féminin ou le non occidental.

En même temps, Palmyra illustre la capacité de Jaudon à créer des œuvres esthétiquement belles. Jaudon entrelace des nuances de rouge dans des arabesques ornées rappelant la pierre gothique, les nœuds celtiques et la calligraphie islamique. La netteté des lignes contre l'empâtement et la superposition des tons rouges donnent l'impression que les lignes sont sculptées comme de la pierre.
