Valerie Jaudon's paintings are composed of curves and arcs, graceful figure eights and undulating waves that form a visual lexicon. Her precise execution and limited palette speak to a minimalist aesthetic, while the faceted painted surfaces show off the hand of her exquisite brushwork.
Jaudon was born in Mississippi and completed her graduate studies at St. Martin's School of Art in London. She emerged in the New York art world as part of the Pattern and Decoration movement of the 1970s. The many publications that have reviewed her work include Art in America, Artforum,The New York Times, and The Washington Post. She has shown regularly at galleries and museums since the mid-seventies and has been commissioned for a number of site-specific public projects.
Her work is held by museums around the world, including New York's Museum of Modern Art and Whitney Museum of American Art, the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC, and the Albright Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo.
Jaudon lives and works in New York City.
