This painting is built up with fairly thick texture which allowed me to apply paint in successive layers, sanding back in areas to accentuate woodblock-like ridges. A light spray of silver brings an interesting read and dimension to the lower third of the painting. The textural component of this piece is particularly satisfying to linger over. This painting comes in a custom 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.
