Paintings by Janet Lage

janet-lage

Janet Lage’s paintings are full of energy, color, texture and line.  These paintings are traditional in the sense of media used, but they have a gritty, graffiti art feel about them.

Handling the consistent flow of lazy curves and organic ellipses takes an athletic control that only appears effortless. Lines swerve in and out over and under, containing color shapes and interrupting them. The imprimatur of rectilinear stripes fades into oblivion and, then, rises to prominence. The geometric and organic are at odds in Lage’s work yet both seem dependent on the other.

— Nancy P. Gladwell
