Jane Maxwell, “New Paintings”
March 04, 2015 to April 15, 2015
Collage artist Jane Maxwell‘s paintings are built with layers of found and vintage papers, which are then sanded, scraped and resurfaced many times. Jane combines her passion for vintage materials, modern fashion and design – mingled with a deep fascination for pop culture and female icons. Using aged movie posters, produce crate labels and advertising signs, Jane creates collages that are multi – layered works with texture, color and text that deconstruct the ideal body myth with an empowered perspective that is both playful and interesting.
Jane Maxwell is from Boston, Massachusetts. Her work is exhibited at major galleries throughout the United States and acquired by collectors from around the world. Her work has been featured in numerous newspaper and magazine articles and in several books on mixed media and collage. She has been a college guest lecturer on the topic of body image and art. Recently, Jane was selected to be included in the 30th anniversary edition of “Who’s Who in American Art.”
