About Jane

My work throws a potent curve to the assumed identity of paper by transforming it into a virtual temple for contemplation of its role in our lives. I create forms and perceptions with the paper, building walls that cascade torn twirls and create still surfaces that move across the entire gallery. The static surfaces and locks of the paper are teeming with latent, almost sensual energy, the delicacy of their twists mirroring the curves and turns of life.

I love the process of transforming familiar materials and having them viewed in unfamiliar ways. I simultaneously pay homage to their essential nature while presenting them anew. I smooth, spread, tear, and meditate upon the paper, building it into larger than life compositions. The process is meditative, repetitive and contemplative. Paper becomes a multilayered force to be reckoned with.
