Valerie Jaudon
Oil on canvas

This painting with a strong, geometric design is located at the Atlanta Civic Center. Jaudon’s work is characterized as part of the Pattern and Decoration movement but also has an emphasis on systems and seriality, which sets her apart from many Pattern and Decoration movement artists. At the time this piece was created, Jaudon began naming her pieces after mathematical or navigational terms. Thus, Pilot fits in well with the trend for her work at the time.

Artist Valerie Jaudon, born in Greenville, Mississippi, is an internationally recognized American painter commonly associated with various Postminimal practices – the Pattern and Decoration movement of the 1970s, site-specific public art, and new tendencies in abstraction.
