About

Janette Dye’s abstract artworks display a perfect balance of form and color. She carefully depicts the organic geometric shapes within her paintings through delicately textured acrylics combined with bold lines and vibrant color fields. Her artworks radiate energy and warmth to any room in which they are displayed. This 36 inch square original and vibrant painting is wired and ready to hang. The sides of the red, yellow and black artwork are painted black. It does not require framing. It is signed and titled by the artist on the back. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable US and worldwide shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the gallery is included. Born in England, 1962, Janette Dye grew up in a quaint village on the outskirts of the industrial NW city of Manchester, among thriving contrasts of the working class and the privileged. These constant changes in movement, growth and vitality were strong influences on the artist from an early age. It was at this time that Janette started regular instructions from the world renowned English painter, Harold Riley. Thus began the start of a lifelong dream. In later years Janette was exposed to the works of Riley’s mentor L.S. Lowry. Lowry’s paintings depict the strained moods of Northern factories and their laborers, which Janette could relate to because of her family history. He was capable of capturing the overpowering emotions of the workers and the factories through strong stylized forms. She increasingly focused on the potential of a single painted line, which in turn led to her exploration of abstract art. These images soon began to influence her approach on everyday living, “As each painting has a new beginning so we too can experience something new every day.” During her time at art College in Manchester, she mainly worked with charcoal where her emphasis was on the 'negative' space. The lack of color emphasized the shape and size of the line and sensibility. After moving to the U.S. Janette has combined her earlier life experiences from the UK and began her new creative direction here. Balance and simplicity is at the heart of Dye's' work. She is at her boldest when she seduces the viewer with her dynamic composition and color sensitivity to create a unique visual vocabulary. “Life is for Living, not just existing; it's the same as abstract painting. Each blank canvas is a ‘new day’ where every brush stroke is filled with unpredictable excitement, spilling over with spontaneity, nothing anticipated or obvious, yet is able to balance the feelings that don't disturb the viewer, alternately, add a sense of curiosity and objectivity." In the last few years, Janette has been very fortunate to work with artists such as DOWNS who was mentored by Karl Benjamin and Frederick Hammersley. Her artworks have been exhibited throughout the US and have been acquired by the Capital One corporate collection.
