Inspired by Sylvia Plath's poem "Stars Over The Dordogne." I applied multiple thin layers of paint onto the wood panel, scraping through in some areas and gently sanding back into the surface in other areas to create a soft atmospheric feel. This piece comes in a natural wood custom frame.
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.
