About

Watson's mixed media works on wood panel incorporate paint and ink in contrasting organic and graphic applications. The artist regularly uses a resin finish, which saturates colours and adds a high-gloss, smooth, reflective surface to her panels; non-resined works on canvas and panel have a semi-gloss, varnish finish. Watson paints with the panel on the ground, moving around the piece as she works. Therefore, she does not specify the orientation in which her pieces are hung. Works can be hung framed or unframed with D-Rings. Janna Watson's compelling abstract compositions use colour, line, and energetic brushstrokes to evoke emotion in the viewer. Her work possesses an elegant and powerful energy, created with a carefully balanced pairing of loose painting and gestural mark-making. Watson's paint strokes are feeling, sensing, emotive “moments” that wholly refer to this mark-making itself without retreating into the sometimes alienating world of pure abstraction. They are altogether honest and confident, vulnerable and evocative portraits of colour, texture, space, and movement. Watson’s paintings circulate regularly at international fairs, including the Toronto International Art Fair, CONTEXT Art Miami, and in Seattle, where they were recently featured by Artsy in its list of “10 Works to Collect at the Seattle Art Fair.” Watson’s work has been covered by publications such as The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, NOW Magazine, and House & Home.
