Mixed-media Fine Artist

Derelict walls and rusted metals; cracked tiles and interfered with signs; fragments of faded posters; all will be varnished with the film of daily life, bearing witness to the effects of weather and the passage of time. These often insignificant details found throughout the built environment form part of an urban language that may be used to decipher the interests, habits, and routines of contemporary life. Janet's art stems from photographic observations of these incidental characteristics, through these she explores the potential of what this urban language can tell us about our society. She is interested in the overlooked and the irrelevant, repeated patterns and structural shapes, and especially the history accumulated in aged and forgotten areas on the brink of change. Janet seeks out this information throughout the urban environment in order to chronicle the social attitudes, political concerns, and cultural trends of a place, both past and present.

Janet Curley Cannon is an American born mixed-media fine artist based in Berkshire, UK. She gained a BA in Art History from the University of Washington, USA and her MA in Fine Art Print from Camberwell College, University of the Arts London (2005). She exhibits on a regular basis and has been selected for many national and international exhibitions, festivals and curated projects including the Liverpool Biennial Independents, London's Gasworks Gallery, BBC Big Screens program, and the International Print Triennial, Poland. Her work is included in several publications including 'Critical Mass – Printmaking Beyond the Edge' by Richard Noyce (A&C Black 2010), and the new book by Jac Scott 'The Language of Mixed-Media Sculpture' Crowood Press in 2014. She has written articles for publications such as 'Printmaking Today' and 'Artist & Illustrators' and maintains a regular blog about contemporary art from across the Thames Valley, UK.
