Janet Sawyer: New Work

New Work : January 4-29 – 2011

These new paintings have many elements familiar to those who know Janet Sawyer’s work, while they also embrace a more abstract persona. The new works exult the qualities her art has been recognized for such as: The “distinctive flatness in her simple block like presentation” described by Jonathan Goodman in his Art in America review.

Also noted has been her: “combining childlike draftsmanship and modernist painterly sophistication” as Ken Johnson wrote in The New York Times.

The show has ten new paintings, 36×36 or 48×48 inches square, and several small acrylic on paper works.
