Heather Chontos Showcases 12 New Paintings in Solo Show
Needing a change of scenery in the early days of the pandemic, expressionist painter Heather Chontos decamped from New York to the countryside of southwestern France, the pastoral inspiration leading to prolific output. First to debut is her Toile du Peintre pattern, which has been produced by Pierre Frey in a cotton-blend upholstery for a limited-edition series of the Togo, Michel Ducaroy’s iconic chair for French furniture company Ligne Roset that’s celebrating its 50th anniversary. “Heather’s intense colors and dynamic patterns push the boundaries, aligning with our value of nonconformism,” says Simone Vingerhoets-Ziesmann, executive vice president of Ligne Roset in the Americas. Soon after, the artist returned to the U.S. for the first time to open “A Time of Sand,” her solo show of 12 new large-scale paintings, including Cold Morning Air, at New York’s Voltz Clarke Gallery (where the Sight Unseen Collection was simultaneously on display during NYCxDesign). The Chontos show goes through July 7.
