Royal College of Art
Having lived in California and Europe, Jan Wurm has honed an eye for social patterns and conventions. She currently divides her time between Berkeley and L.A. and her hand between drawing and painting. Wurm has taught for University of California Berkeley Extension and lectured extensively. Wurm has authored exhibition catalogues and curated major exhibitions for the Richmond Art Center. Jan Wurm's paintings, drawings, and artist's books examine daily life to reveal aspects of contemporary culture which inform our relationships. Infused with warmth, humor, and an energetic line, these paintings on canvas and mixed media works on paper invite the viewer to join the moment. Her work, exhibited internationally, is in collections including the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, New York Public Library Print Collection, Archiv Verein der Berliner Künstlerinnen, Universität für angewandte Kunst in Vienna, and Tiroler Landesmuseen, Innsbruck.
