Jancy Pettit

Jancy was introduced to meditative martial arts forms called Qigong and Tai Chi, which revolutionized her approach to artmaking. This universal energy, sometimes referred to as “Chi” literally moves her in a spontaneous, free-flowing way to create images, with no pre-planning or pre-conceived ideas. Her show combines paintings completed just using her hands to “fingerpaint” while doing Tai Chi and ceramic pieces formed by sometimes using small drawing tools, while moving chi through her hands.
