Jaq Chartier: Remain In Light 

J. Rinehart Gallery, Seattle, WA - Apr 2 - May 7

by Matthew Kangas

Jaq Chartier’s new SunTest series extends her longtime interest in exposing the miniature or microscopic, transforming it into visibly altered patterns. Among Seattle’s artists with international reputations, Chartier has attracted considerable interest from art museums and galleries in New York, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland for her allusions to genetic engineering, chromatography and “DNA gel electrophoresis.” To stark white backgrounds, Chartier applies lush, oozing colors that ignite ambiguous references to nature and science.
