Reception: June 4 2017 2-5pm
Influenced by strong shapes and contrast, Jan's recent paintings reflect a particular awareness of abstraction in the landscape. "I am increasingly interested in design and placement of shapes and quality of color to communicate a visual story of time and space", she says. "Working on artist grade sanded papers allows me to build up many layers of pastel to create luminous color and rich texture."
This current show includes small paintings, 8"x 10" or smaller, as well as larger works. The small paintings are wonderful additions to brighten a narrow wall or accent a table top when placed in a small easel. They travel well in a suitcase and are affordable for beginner collectors, and as gifts.
