JANICE CASWELL

Whether she’s walking around her neighborhood in New York City or traveling to Thailand, Janice photographs often overlooked objects then further isolates them by painting out the extraneous information. The results are images of strange and unexpected shapes, signs and patterns that make our eyes refocus and see the world in a new, more expansive way.

Janice's work has been shown nationally, most recently at the Housatonic Museum of Art in Bridgeport, CT and the Derfner Judaica Museum in Riverdale, NY. She's received numerous reviews including in NY Arts and the San Francisco Chronicle, and her work was included in two recent books: Visual Complexity: Mapping Patterns of Information by Manuel Lima and The Map as Art: Contemporary Artists Explore Cartography by Katherine Harmon.
