Ethereal and strong washes of color cover the canvas, some spreading across the surface at an angle reminiscent of the last light of the day. Many areas of interest, with blocks of color, geometric shapes, textured paint, playful drawing and subtle reference to space. Created using multiple layers of opaque and transparent glazes. The title comes from a line in the song "Jimi Thing" from Dave Matthews Band.
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.
