Jeanette Lafontine Artist Bio:
In my work I am exploring imaginary landscapes and dreamlike places through abstraction. I am interested in human beings’ imagination and ability to fantasize, and the idea of an collective unconsiousness, creating abstract mythological landscapes and compositions that hover between something familiar versus the more incomprehensive. An interest in the relationship between the subconscious, dreams and myths, is present as a backdrop of my creative process. I am working with a wide range of materials: textile, foam, different types of paint and found materials to name a few. Sculptural forms, structure, drip, spill, and overlaping of materials compete for space. The surface and structure of my paintings reflect the time and process put into the work, and multiple «dimensions» and details emerge. My latest series of work is based in drawing. A process where there is no editing, just adding, creating layers of information – like memory and our unconsciousness. I work intuitively, and I am being open to unpredictable discoveries, and where the techniques and expression evolves in the making. It is a process where here the subliminal and the conscious meet.
