This piece was inspired by a jazz tune of the same name composed by Torrey Newhart. Torrey had invited me and a number of other artists to create paintings in response to his compositions. This was one of a series I did for our collaborative project. This painting comes in a custom wood frame ready to hang.
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.
