Gwen Avant (American)
Born in Northern Minnesota

Allowing intuition to rule her creative process, Gwen Avant enlists the momentary revelations of the viewers with her evocative abstract paintings. Avant often uses oil, beeswax, acrylic paint and chalk in the creation of her imagery. Recognizable objects are sometimes traceably present but purposely remain both visually and meaningfully obscure.
Gwen Avant has exhibited her paintings, sculptures and installations in Minneapolis, Chicago, and New York, and has her work in many private and corporate collections.
