Jane Mick’s art will be exhibited at Fast Frame in Valencia for the month of July. A wine and cheese reception will be held July 29 from 1-4 pm.
Jane was born in London, England, but has lived most of her life in California. She began her career as a fashion designer but later in life worked as a graphic designer in the sign business. Jane has since focused her artistic talents on strictly oil painting. As a landscape artist, Jane creates a calm feeling for the viewer. Her paintings reflect silence, solitude, and emotion, through her perception of space and shadows. The surface of her paintings is as important as the image itself. The texture of the surface adds dimension to the painting, and within the texture the viewer finds colors that may not seem to belong but give interest to the painting. The mood of the painting emerges and changes as the work progresses.
When not painting landscapes, Jane enjoys painting what she calls “Paintings of Celebration”. Jane’s popularity is growing in this area due to the unique concept of combining wine bottles, wine glasses, and martini glasses with women or dancing couples fused within. This style suggests romance and sophistication. In contrast, Jane might combine brighter colors in her martini glasses with dancing figures to create a livelier and fun atmosphere. Jane’s dance background and love of the theater has inspired her to paint images like dancing couples hidden within the wine bottle as you feel the romance in the air. Some of the paintings also have words camouflaged within. Words give emotion to the paintings and come from Jane’s days of sign making. The paintings are great conversation pieces that bring new interest to home cocktail bars or dining areas as well as restaurants and hip gatherings.
