Bold, playful, design-forward abstractions inspired by shapes and colours of the natural and built world around us.
A recent transplant from Vancouver to the interior of BC, Janice’s expressive abstracts are rooted in her background in design, lending her work a strong graphic cadence that fuses her love of both drawing and painting.
She is process-based artist and it is the “not knowing” of the creative process that inspires her to paint. She begins her canvases with improvised layers of colour and marks. Through a process of layering, she adds and subtracts paint, responding to the changing character of form, hue and line work.
Her work is abstract but occasionally loose figurative representations appear in her work, showing themselves in quirky and unexpected ways. It’s this exciting and mysterious process that continues to drive her to explore and develop her visual language.
influenced by great contemporary artists such as Richard Diebenkorn, Amy Sillman and Chuta Kimura, Janice aspires to synthesize those influences and create work that is fresh and uniquely her own.
