Announcement   Welcome to JodyScottChandlerArt, the direct studio outlet for works by artist Jody Scott Chandler.

*Announcement 5/31/16: We have divided the the shop into two! Muse Artist Fragrances can now be found here: etsy.com/shop/MuseArtistFragrances

Muse Artist Fragrances is a project collaboration between artist Jody Scott Chandler and artist Bobbi Sorensen. We believe perfumery to be an extension of our creativity, being the creation of an intimate aesthetic experience that, just as visual art, touches on the conceptual, emotional, and cultural levels as well as the sensual. Thus, you have heard of "designer perfumes"; we think of our fragrances as "artist perfumes". Our perfumes are personally formulated and hand bottled, all made from naturally derived botanical ingredients, and available in jojoba oil for roll-on application or alcohol for spray.

My paintings tend to express basic aesthetic experiences such as line, form, space, color, and texture, sometimes to the extent that they are "just barely" artistic at all, to offer viewers the freedom to indulge in an at times bizarre, absurd, yet marvelous and precious human privilege: to just look and feel with nothing else to do, especially not to dig for definitive content, messages, or meaning unless they happen to just occur to one. I do not require of these basic aesthetic experiences that they be devoid of content or emotional resonance, but I relinquish control over such content as fully as possible to the serendipity of the individual viewer's responsiveness to any piece. My works are not necessarily without concrete reference or inspiration, but my artistic process is one by which I tend to occlude, eclipse, obscure, or hide to varying extent the original inspiration rather than reveal or explicate it. I paint away from subject matter, rather than about or nearby it, to arrive at a subject matter quite beyond the intentional. I have a deep love of perennial mystery in works of art both objective and non-objective.

Henri Matisse once famously said: "What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter, an art which could be for every mental worker, for the businessman as well as the man of letters, for example, a soothing, calming influence on the mind, something like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue. " While I am aware --and I think Matisse surely must have been aware-- of other roles for art, in my own way, I find myself in deep sympathy with him. In furnishing our lives (from our homes to our public spaces to our larger culture), we can think of artworks as contemplative furniture for the eye and the mind in the same way that a couch is for the body.
