The large scale canvases of painter Ginny Chenet reflect the artist's love of nature and fascination with light and color. Chenet works primarily in oils and acrylics, rendering subjects in dramatic richly colored detail while creating landscapes which seem to resonate with the changing light of day. Working with layers of paint, brush and palette knife, Ginny balances spontaneity, gesture and form with depth and control to bring her subjects to life. Her subjects range from the vivid irises of her father's garden to the orchards and farm lanes of North Carolina where she finds beauty and respite. Ginny's paintings provide a visual opportunity for restoration, renewal and rest and an invitation to celebrate and delight. Using her graphic design background, she has also designed the art for the Chapel Hill Service League Cookbook and art for Pimpernell Company and has had her paintings reproduced by Classic Creations publisher available online. She recently received a first place Moonbean award for her illustrations in Sarah Froeber's book "Rainbow's Orchestra." In addition, lately Ginny has found a playfulness in returning to her abstract expressionist roots of university days.
Collectors include UNC Dental School, Duke University, Wake Medical Hospital, PPD, Williams Mullen, Cap Associates, Bell South, Glaxo, SAS Institute, Health Source, Petree Stockton, James Scott Farrin, CP&L and many others. She hopes that viewers of her paintings will experience an invitation to experience more and a homecoming for their hearts.
