Janet Fish is a Contemporary Realist American painter whose still life paintings seem t0 radiate and reflect color.
Fish invigorates the still life form, both by the energetic way she paints and the often witty and ironic combinations of objects that she depicts.
She often chooses as her subjects objects that are translucent, transparent, or reflective, in particular colored glass.
Janet surrounds these objects with flowers, bright cloth patterns and other objects in brilliant hues, balanced with strategically placed rich darks.
Fish sometimes works from photographs, but often her paintings are composites of many photographs and still lifes, which she rearranges to form her compositions.
Her remarkable way of painting light and shadows puts a surrealistic glow on her fantastic art.
I feel like I can almost see my reflection in her glass works. Can you?
