Jeanette Pasin Sloan: Life Reflected
Date: 5/2/2016 - 7/25/2016
The Ed Paschke Art Center is please present a solo exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Jeanette Pasin Sloan.
Featuring work spanning over two decades of her celebrated career, Sloan's intricate still lifes of reflective domestic objects are formally dazzling. They also function as a personal auto-biography, telling the story of Sloan's emotional life through her imaginatively arranged and reproduced material possessions.
Pasin Sloan’s fusion of realism and abstraction produces work that is both tactile and psychological. Through cropping and distortion, she achieves a balance and beauty that goes beyond the real, into the realm of the ideal.
Jeanette Pasin Sloan was born in Chicago in 1946, and lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She earned her undergraduate degree from Marymount College, New York, and her MFA in graphic arts from the University of Chicago. She has had solo exhibitions in museums and galleries across the US, in cities such as Chicago, New York and Washington, D.C., and has been the subject of numerous articles and monographs. She has a con-current solo exhibition on view at the Brauer Museum of Art, Valparasio University, Valparasio, IN.
