‘Beginnings: Selected Works By Uhma Janus’

“Beginnings” is the solo show of Mexican artist Uhma Janus. Originally from Leon, Guanajuato, she has lived in Louisville for 15 years. Janus specializes in line abstraction, working in acrylic, oil, graphite, colored pencils and mixed media. While she has great interest in the visual and performing arts, math and the sciences come to play in her art as well. “Some elements that can be found in my work draw from geometry, physics, biology [and] biochemistry, as the descriptive notional tools for the representation of reality,” said Janus.
