Jan Tervonen & Matilda Kim (August 29 - October 10, 2017)

Jan Tervonen grew up in a Finnish-American family in a small town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan surrounded by the beauty of Lake Superior. She was taught the values of simplicity, organization, and a good pun. She has developed a minimalistic abstract style with a wry sense of humor representative of her Finnish-American roots. Her paintings have been featured in numerous solo and group shows in the Pacific Northwest including the Kirkland Library, Overlake Hospital in Bellevue, the city of Renton’s Carco Theatre, and Pratt Fine Arts Center.

 

Jan talks about her art:
I am a modern abstract artist who works primarily with mixed watermedia. My pieces are combinations of bright colors and bold brushstrokes collaged onto paper creating a visual experience often evoking a wry smile. My inspiration is born from a passion for Mid-century Modern and Japanese art and their common threads with Finnish aesthetics using limited line and color, and simplicity of design.

A
bout Matilda's art:
She has deep hopes that, whoever sees her paintings with bold colors, to feel happiness and encouragement to do anything they dream.

To her, art is an escape from reality, where she can paint her dreams and recall her youth. She currently resides in Whidbey Island, WA with her husband, where she continues to depict Washington's beautiful scenery.
