Quebec-based artist Janet London makes animals and neo-abstracted paintings comprised of scraped materials, smeared patches of charcoal and large brushstrokes of colorful recycled paints. The compulsive energy of her work fluctuate between rehearsed wildness and careful control. Her large canvases as well as her smaller ones and intimate drawings study the mechanisms of colors and dreams — mining what happens when the mind interprets fantasies as shapes, or colors as textures.
Janet lives and works in Drummondville, Quebec. She was honored to receive a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Masters of Education. The artist’s work has been shown in California, Greece, Korea, Cuba, Trinidad & Tobadgo, San Francisco, Ontario and Quebec. She currently has a solo exhibition at the Neolondon Arts Gallery in Drummondville, Qc.
Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University in Montreal.
Masters in Education from McGill University in Montreal.
Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from York University in Toronto.
