The University Gallery features artist Beginga Chilla's recent series of large scale paintings shown in the context of earlier intaglio prints and wall installations. Her artistic process begins with inspiration from geometric patterns found in architecture, textiles and nature. She explores both organic and constructed geometric shapes, which are organized through symmetry. The large scale paintings were created after a 2012 stay in Bhutan. Actual texture is embedded onto the canvas, Layered with natural pigments like turmeric, saffron, and minerals.
A love of organic form is at the heart of Jean’s still life drawings and paintings. She depicts commonplace objects in a sensuous, yet reverential way, aspiring to elevate these subjects to a higher visual, emotional and spiritual plane.
