Urban grit, grates and graffiti, the city's patterns and its well worn textures have long been intriguing to me. I love the evidence left of time passages and of people having moved through different spaces over the course of years. I used multiple transparent and semi-transparent layers in this piece that I incorporated with some sanding. This painting comes in a custom black wood 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.
