Mining a lifelong library of sketches and studies

Featured Artist Jane Fasse

Jane Fasse, a painter and senior lecturer at Madisons Edgewood College works primarily in oil and acrylics. She produces works she extensively researches using sketchbooks. I can go to an active, lifelong library of sketches and studies, and mine them. I use them as a catalyst for one painting or a series. I keep them continually active and I continually produce them. A sketchbook can contain an image I have just completed, or a drawing from years ago. Sometimes the two can be fluidly matched and recombined to form new images in unexpected ways.
Fasse accredits the energy she experiences to teaching art and from searching information available on the web, discovering new painters and image makers as inspiration to experiment and take her work in new directions. Social media ports like Pinterest and Wordpress now allow artists to see new images and make new connections with fellow artists.
The capability to use digital tools as part or all of the creative process give artists new venues and tools to create and promote brand new kinds of work.
A new direction is clearly where shes gone with her most recent work. Distilled and more two dimensionally graphic in nature than previous work, the pieces employ bright, rich color and contrast to render forms akin to the studies done by sculptors. She uses color and subtle texture applied to panels and similar techniques on paper.
She continues to explore imagery that connects to micro-biology, horticulture and a varied collection of abstract fluid geometries.
She is published and collected in the United States and a continuing digital record of her work and inspiration can be seen at:
