Jane Carney is a Chicago-based artist whose practice relies on what can only be described as an ongoing reciprocal dialogue with figurative abstraction in both drawing and painting. Carney exhibits regionally and nationally. She has divided her time between serving as Visual Arts Chair at Loyola Academy and working in her studio in Evanston, Illinois. Her work is in collections nationally. She is a member of the National Association of Woman Artists.
"Whenever I initiate a drawing, collage or painting, a dialogue begins. It becomes a conversation, a back and forth of visual bantering. I play with materials and surfaces and in the process new directions and images emerge. This allows me to work with disparate ideas that evolve from personal experiences and the world around me. Through improvisation and experimentation I grab both conceptually and physically from whatever is in my path. Within the chaos, I search for a hidden order. In my studio practice, I attack, pull back, destroy and rework surfaces. It is a dance where the choreography is constantly changing until the piece tells me to stop. I am rewarded with the joy of discovery and rediscovery."
