Rich color layered with light washes results in a palette that brings to mind coastal towns on the Aegean Sea. "When I finished this painting," Janine explains, "it felt like I was transported to a cafe on the island of Santorini on a Sunday morning. It surprises me when my abstract work brings to mind a distinct place and time."
Janine’s abstract artworks are created with measured doses of both intuition and analysis. “My work develops as a series of calls and responses,” she says. She adds color, letting gravity pull the paint around. She then responds to the direction of the composition with additional marks, adding and subtracting. The incorporation of recognizable forms, specifically letters and numbers, indicates the influences of Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg on Janine’s work. Janine is also inspired by listening to jazz music. She is a musician herself, and plays in a local Zimbabwean marimba ensemble when she’s not painting.
