Janice Caswell
New York, NY
Neighborhood: Williamsburg



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work begins with structures found in the manmade landscape, in particular, things that are slightly odd or awkward, show signs of wear, and that reflect the conditions, intentions and inventiveness of the people who made them. These objects display intriguing traces of a layered history: each detail, each alteration, reflects a maker’s hand and provides clues to the past. Using photography, drawing, painting, collage, and sculpture, I create new forms and structures inspired by the thousands of such forms I have encountered, documented, and filed away in a mental library of angles, patterns, plays of light and shadow. The approach is both intuitive and improvisational, a combination of practicality, aesthetics, and serendipity.
