Has practiced at Creative Growth since 2014
Jane Kassner creates abstract paintings with both a bold confidence of brushwork and a sensitivity of subtle color palettes. Moving with slow and steadied grace, Jane gradually adjusts her composition, mixing layers of color together as she lays down short strokes or circular movements. Her powerful mark-making calls to mind abstract expressionists like Helen Frankenthaler or Joan Mitchell. Jane has experimented with a variety of substrates including painting on encyclopedia pages, fabric, and discarded gallery ads from ArtForum.
