Valerie Jaudon is most famous for her role in the Pattern and Decoration Movement of the mid-1970s, which arose as a reaction against the dominance and legacy of Minimalism and Conceptualism. Jaudon’s painting practice evokes motifs and the embellishments of folk art, decorative arts, and non-Western traditions of abstraction. The works often use symmetric compositions comprised of repetitive, patterned forms that span the entire surface of a work. More recently, Jaudon has explored how to compose her figures using single, continuous bands of paint. All of her works are part of an ongoing exploration of systems, and in using simple elements to create visually complex images. She is also known for painting with a highly limited palette of two or three colors at a time.
