Janie Milstein

The inspiration for my recent work is found in cityscapes and our emotional reactions to them. The shifting interplay of light, shadow and color seen through the prism of mood and memory provides moments of surprise and wonder for me. I am intrigued by the reflections of buildings in buildings. Reflections often create distorted, mysterious, and eerie visions of great beauty. And when a modern glass skyscraper reflects a grand old building one sees a curious melding of centuries. I use a variety of materials: paint, string, mesh, plastic, wire, wood, paper, found objects and photo transfers. These materials are rarely pristine; rough around the edges, uneven, and organic, they communicate the diversity of life in the everyday world.
