Jane‘s recent series of watercolor paintings called “This is Home” is an exploration of the place of home and what feels like “home” in Chicago, comprising of a series of 16 interviews and watercolor paintings exploring this idea. The interviews with residents were designed to create dialogue about the emotions evoked by, the comfort derived from, the special objects collected within, and the words used to describe home. The paintings attempt to capture some aspect of that which was gathered through the interviews sharing a glimpse of each home. More about the project and paintings can be found at thisishomechicago.com
Included in the series are Todd & his wife Linda’s home, as well as Herb’s in-laws’ home. The paintings will show at Firecat Projects at 2124 N. Damen Avenue, in Bucktown, from December 18th to January 23rd, with an opening reception on Friday, December 18th, 7-10pm. Jane will also be giving an artist talk on Saturday, January 16th at 5pm.
Congratulations to Jane on the completion of such a wonderful project!
