Janelle Hebert shows work
at Deux Bayous Gallery

Influences of Pop Art and Hard-edged Painting are seen in the work of Deux Bayous Gallery’s Featured Artist Janelle Hebert of St. Martinville.
526Picture, left, is of  “Moo shu pork,” a  Pop Art parody on the traditional northern Chinese dish.

Hebert incorporates elements of Hard-edged Painting – bold simplicity, economy and precision of line, and flatness of color – into both her Pop Art and abstract works.
