JoAnne Artman Gallery NEW YORK presents Contemporary Consiousness

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

The JoAnne Artman Gallery in New York is pleased to share “Contemporary Consciousness” featuring artists James Wolanin and Jane Maxwell. The female body has long served as a muse in the arts, a lens through which the themes, issues and ongoing dialogue of the contemporary collective consciousness can be reflected. The work of James Wolanin and Jane Maxwell addresses this discourse through reflective interpretations of the feminine ideal through context, material and approach. In Wolanin’s work an idealized “snapshot” image is filtered through memories of the artist’s own personal history as in Mona Lisa of the Motorway Acrylic and Resin on Panel – featured above. Maxwell’s imagery on the other hand, while also addressing the legacy of print advertisement in the digital age, looks at its ephemerality through aggregation and accumulation. Biting into societal and personal constructs of femininity both artists commit to an encompassing approach, resulting in work that both entices and provokes.
