Janina Williams

Hoboken, New Jersey

Janina is a practicing visual artist and gallery educator currently living in NYC. Her work expresses life in modern cultures and is indicative of the inner images that exist as a result of our memories, our emotions, and the environment we live in. Janina’s paintings are often a synthesis of color, line, form, and texture, and invite the viewer to enter a journey into different realms, intangible worlds from which all material phenomena originate from. Her aim is to bring inner visions to a conscious level.

The artist works in a wide range of media ranging from photography, collage, watercolor, oils to acrylics, often combing different techniques and materials simultaneously to create energetic works of art. Her collages embrace some of the characteristics of DADA collages in their attempt to provoke a reaction in the viewer. Her mission as an artist is to help people start an inner dialogue in order to question the reality behind well-worn thought patterns. According to the artist, the real challenge is to create works that convey balance and movement by exploring color and form relationships that instill a certain type of positive energy in the viewer.

In a time where information moves at a rapid speed art can help mitigate that numbing effect that modern society is creating by offering spaces for stillness and reflection. The artist states that art is a way of thinking and offers an abstract and spiritual way to digest and to respond to what we are fed and bombarded with. Janina’s artwork embodies a wide influence of art movements including Dada, Expressionism, Art Nouveau, Art of the Sixties/Psychedelic Art, and Urban/Street Art.
