Janet Lage’s energetic abstract pieces are loaded with writing (graffiti), color, form and expressionistic brushstrokes.
For Lage, the painting process is an alliance of language and image. The narrative is based on the changing dynamics of love and desire.
They are tales of romance, heartbreak and the perception of a thing called LOVE,
There is story telling, but partial stories. She allows viewers to complete the story.
Some of the paintings are informed by poems, some by song and some by Pierre- an invented lover.
Rather than being informed by specific locations…the artist finds her path is mostly influenced by people and relationships, and the crazy things we do to get each other’s affection and/or what we do to get rid of it.
This painting is a signature work with Graffiti elements and Words as a vehicle for artistic expression.
Lage’s has exhibited at museums nationwide. Her work is in many important museum and public collections, including Aetna, CPI International, Stamford Hospital, Yale University Hospital and Pepsico.
