Janice Porter Marckstein explores a wide range of emotions and attitudes in paintings that reflect life's simplicity and complexity, while celebrating its joy and occasionally lamenting its sorrows. She begins her paintings using photo-realism techniques and then suddenly departs from them in unexpected ways.
Her recent work, for example, includes larger-than-life studies of simple objects that offer viewers the opportunity to perceive strength in a workman's glove and experience life in a bucket. She also selects certain studies to transform into abstract paintings. Moving from the perceptual to the conceptual, the artist exposes viewers to the beauty in a dab of rust and helps them discover truth in the curve of a pumpkin.
Paintings by Janis Porter Marckstein are in the home of private collectors across the United States and Europe.
