Jane Fowler

I am a BIPOC disabled woman with three children who spent 26 years as an EMT and CNA in the health care industry while going to school. I went to the University of Washington for one year before moving to Sacramento, CA. After getting my A.S. degree in Science, Math & Engineering from Sacramento City College in 1991 I transferred to the University of California, Davis where I completed 90 units in Studio Art before opening up a studio and collective gallery space with 10 other artists in 1995. I was showing my art in local and regional juried solo and group exhibits and doing experimental documentaries. In 2004 I quit working in health care and did fine art full time. I went back to school and received a B.S. in Small Business Administration online from University of Phoenix in 2006. Today I am still showing and selling my Mixed Media, Abstract Neoexpressionistic, and Representational Paintings and Charcoal Drawings. In 2020, I started entering online juried group and solo art shows nationally and internationally.

Polyresin Experimental Abstracts

During COVID-19 pandemic it gave me time to develop new art and I explored media, called polyresin foam, that I applied to my canvases. I use high quality Utrecht gesso, Utrecht acrylic paint, and archival UV light protection on my gallery wrapped canvases in the mixed media abstract expressionistic genre. I enjoy the process of making kinetic art based in biological functions basic to life. I feel closer to people after being isolated for so long and working at home outside. My hope is to share the experimentation with others and provide a glimpse into the processes going on in our bodies as lines of DNA helixes are formed to make various types of living structures.

Representational Paintings

My representational work draws heavily on my background as a BIPOC woman who grew up in Seattle, Washington and was influenced by Northwestern Native American art forms. I linger on culturally relevant moments and bring them to life with soft gestures and brilliant tones as the essence of my work. My hope of nurturing emotion until it rises to the heights of joy in living cause light to radiate from my canvases. I use my constructions with awareness, but not with calculation, led by high intuition, and brought to a place of harmony and rhythm. I create fluidity with a vast range of expressions. My African American background is expressed in figurative and mask works. My Native American heritage helps me create visuals for storytelling. Animals, objects of importance to me, and human figures have a spiritual element that are expressed boldly in my artwork and portray my cultural identity.
The representational paintings are made with Utrecht acrylic or oil paint on canvas, masonite, and wood. Mixed media paintings include Native American beading, fabric, native materials, and animal fur.

Contemporary Abstract Paintings

. I use my 20+ years as a cellist and harmonica player to imbue my love of music into my pieces with lyrical unity and extrapolations of humanity. Spontaneity is a key factor that accompanies my vision for the viewer to experience. My hope of nurturing emotion until it rises to the heights of joy in living cause light to radiate from my canvases. Touches of intuitive strokes and contrasts in color lyrically combine in my abstract narratives to poetically inspire the human spirit.

I play with space and color as my friend. The fixed mixes with the fluid and replicate the forces of nature at work. In my paintings, time is suspended, but we are just on the brink of inter dimensionality. Everything pulsates with life, on the verge of movement and change.

My geometric art is based on the use of geometric forms sometimes, though not always in non-illusionistic space and combined into non-objective (non-representational) compositions. My love of Piet Mondrian’s constructions of horizontal and vertical lines which call attention to the root plasticity and two dimensionality of painting as an artistic medium drives me to explore non-objective painting.
