Visiting Artist Jane Fine lecture

Monday, March 24, 2014 -
12:00pm to 1:00pm

Artist Jane Fine will give an artist lecture on Monday, March 24 at noon in McMaster 239.  The public is welcome.


Of her artwork, Ms. Fine states: “Located on the border between figuration and abstraction, my paintings are raucous battlefields. The specific nature of each piece is determined by a mash-up of painterly technique including vigorous brushwork, delicate marker lines, areas of flat color, and glossy pours of multi-colored acrylic paint, using a technique of my own invention.  Sampling from the painters’ buffet, I am sometimes mimicking an anxious Pollock or a flesh-extruding Guston. At other times I feel like my Grandmother, caressing a surface with line as if embroidering the family’s tablecloths.”  


Jane Fine has lived and worked in Williamsburg, Brooklyn since 1986. She received a B.A. from Harvard University and an M.A. from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. She is also an alumna of the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture.  Jane is a recipient of grants from The New York Foundation for the Arts, The Pollock-Krasner Foundation and The National Endowment for the Arts. She has been a resident at the Cité Internationale des Artes in Paris, The Golden Foundation, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, and a four-time guest at Yaddo.
