"Coffee in Soho" stirs up memories from days gallery hopping in New York City, stopping for coffee in Soho, resting my weary feet, sun beaming from between old warehouse buildings, my mind happily pondering the chic well considered shops and beautifully curated galleries I've just wandered through. This piece has passages of thick paint but predominantly light layers of luminous color that breathe.

Getting to Know Janine

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.
