Statement

Jane Goren often uses recycled objects and observations as a metaphor for survival in an edgy world. She finds inspiration in things others discard and often works with these resources, raising issues of materialism and relative value.

Goren was born and educated in New York City and was part of the art and theatre scene there until she moved to Los Angeles . After LA’s last earthquake, she began collecting discarded windows, which she painted on the reverse side of the glass, in an attempt to heal and restore order to the disoriented city. The technique of reverse glass painting challenged her technical skills and allowed her to examine issues of voyeurism, surveillance and the deceitful nature of appearances.

Travel has always played an important part in Goren’s life and work, and has been essential to her artistic development, informing her work with a multicultural dynamic charged with personal meaning. She lived and worked in Berlin, Germany in 1997 and in Hangzhou, China in 2000. She has also spent time painting in India, Brazil, Italy and Jamaica.

Jane Goren has exhibited extensively in the United States as well as internationally. Her work has been included in such public collections as Mercedes-Benz, the national Public Library, the LAUSD Child Abuse Prevention office and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, as well as the private collection of President Fidel Castro.

She lives and works in LA and spends as much time as possible in her studio in Telluride, Colorado.
