Heather Chontos


As a painter, Heather Chontos focuses her studio practice on the ambiguity and unique beauty of abstract expressionism, creating artwork that explores compositions of invisible light, like a secret language only spoken through her various mediums, color palettes, forms and marks. She focuses on gestures, connecting color and form through relentless movements and mark making. Chontos does not use traditional applications of paint with brushes or other implements; rather she uses scraps of plastic, such as manipulated plastic such as hotel room key cards. These different materials allow for different levels of color and saturation of the medium.
