Press release

Janet Lage’s work takes its form as she experiences the world within the gap between seeing and knowing. Lage has developed a vocabulary of marks, materials, textures, and colors that are symbolic expressions of the residue of life. She sees the paint as a living thing with inclinations of its own and she opens herself up to collaborate with it. Calligraphic lines and irregular edges are born from the rawness of nature and contemporary culture. Drawing inspiration from life’s curious daily events and scenes, she synchronizes the intertwined existence of order and disorder. Her work positions itself loosely between representation and abstraction in search of this expression.

Lage absorbs her surroundings and takes nothing for granted. She finds worth and meaning in the mundane as well as the exotic. Her work expresses the parallel realities of life’s scenes and events. In this way, her work is affirming and positive, giving weight to the seemingly insignificant as well as the momentous, providing a model for our travels.

Hose Me, an exhibition of Lage's paintings, will open this evening at eo art lab from 6—9 p.m.
