Jane Robinson is a Michigan native who uses fluid acrylic paints to make expressionist, abstract artwork inspired by jazz music. She is particularly influenced by early pioneers of the genre, including John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, and Sonny Clarke. The movement, rhythm, instruments and “color” of the music opens a portal to a world that Robinson captures on canvas. The artist experiments with complex textures–created through layering various mediums–to encourage curiosity in the viewer about what lies beneath. She believes art is an incredible journey that provides endless possibilities to stimulate the senses. Jane subscribes to the concept that art, like jazz, transcends the barriers of geography, culture, and faith.

About The Artist
My current work is inspired by the jazz music of early pioneers such as Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Sonny Clarke and dozens of others. The movement, rhythm, instruments and “colour” of the music opens a portal to an unexplored world - through the looking glass. I encourage the viewer to lay aside their concept of what art “should” look like. Try to see and feel the movement, the rhythm, the composition at a very basic level. Don’t worry about “seeing something” in my work - let your intuition speak.
I'm a Michigan native working in acrylic paint and mixed media. Complex textures, created through layering various mediums, encourage curiosity about what lies beneath. Most viewers are attracted to particular pieces not only for the colors and composition but for the sculptural qualities as well. I believe that art transcends the barriers of geography, culture, color or faith. Art in all forms provide endless possibilities to stimulate our five senses - giving us an incredible journey to travel. My work has been purchased by many private collectors and businesses all over the globe as well as the local college, Marriott Hotel, Comfort Inn, DePaul University and the University of Michigan.
