Valerie Jaudon, new work

Valerie Jaudon's new work opened at DC Moore. In 1996 she was interviewed by Rene Paul Barilleaux. Barilleaux began by asking Jaudon about the connections between her work and issues of the Pattern and Decoration movement, here's her response.
In many ways, my concerns today stem directly from my earlier works and some of the issues that surfaced in the seventies regarding the decorative, the feminine, abstraction and painting in general. Ideas like beau?)!. Things that we have a difficult time talking about... they're invisible, but they don't go away. Aesthetics and philosophy seem so uncomfortable dealing with these issues. And now with art under attack both politically and philosophically, the stakes are even higher.
