Jan Gauthier is a native of California and a graduate of San Francisco State University. Gauthier looks to her immediate surroundings in the environs of West Marin County for her subject matter, primarily still life and landscape imagery. She achieves a unique atmosphere in her work by hand painting traditional gelatin silver prints with oil based pigments and wax, imbuing the black and white images with warm umber and sienna tones and adding subtle texture to the surface. Through this unique process, Gauthier captures more than a still life or a landscape, but an atmospheric mood that is unique to her body of work. A selection of her still life photographs has been broken into a grid with fragmented images that have a disquieting beauty to them. There is an air of discovery and calm to this work as well as a tension created by the fragmentation.
