The future is uncertain. We will define what we become by our technical existence. In an organic vision I see a renewed life form that came from our modern advances.

Moving and making have interested Jean Cherouny for decades. When she entered grade school she was a ballet dancer. She is familiar with “feet movement” from her years of skateboarding, biking, skiing, playing baseball and soccer. Her kinesthetic interests left her curious about how her mind and body bring paint and sport together and call it fine art. In college, where she created large futuristic bike racers for her senior thesis, she began to discover her visual voice in paint. “Speed pushes me to the brink while using my rollerblades to play with colors”. Jean’s large-scale rollerblade paintings, first executed in 2008, as well as smaller-scale “wheel work,” all go beyond the brush. They are brightly colored, visually dynamic, and enduringly inspiring to viewers and fellow artists. Jean studied at the University of Vermont for a BS in Art Education, where she was also a competitive skier. She earned her MFA from Northern Vermont University in 2010. She has shown her work in juried and commercial shows in America and Europe. While Jean paints all over the world, she currently exhibits her art in public spaces with Burlington City Art Gallery.
