Chantal Westby Artist Bio:

Chantal Westby; creates an intuitive, energetic world of whimsy in her A powerful and unique collect, blending the best of French & Asian tradition. French-Asian contemporary art by Internationally acclaimed Abstract painter,an artist of the international school of abstract expressionism, and French TV personality. Westby's arts is ardently personal and uniquely universal, evoke the timeless beauty of our shared universe, articulated in her purity of form and line. Her works at the exhibition combining her highly expressive style with a touch of the Asian influenced simplicity resulted in a new body work never had presented before creates works of art that not only speak of her own memories but also encourage the spectator to investigate their own. The artist attributes her vision to her desire to encourage a visual dialogue between the spectator and herself. She accomplishes this task through her large-scale acrylic paintings. Her compositions elevate recognizable forms and subjects to an abstract level, stripping them of their tangible boundaries and allowing them to exist in their most organic state. Westby furthers this abstract quality by altering the perspective, often presenting her depicted scenes in a di sotto in su style. In doing so, she creates a field of depth that allows the spectator to look up into the compositions towards illusionistic upper thresholds, intensifying the emotions captured on the canvas support. Westby hopes that her paintings create a rapport between her most intimate emotions and those of the viewer. ¨Born in France, Westby migrated to the United States in the 1980s and has actively painted in Pennsylvania since her arrival.
