North on County S


Jan Jahnke

(Shorewood, Wisconsin) 

Mixed media on 4 ply archival board 

My landscapes are not renderings but intuitive interpretations of nature. My approach is spontaneous and open to elements of controlled "chance". I concentrate on detailed mark-making, texture and pattern. Multiple layers of ink- both transparent and opaque - are applied, edited, and reapplied layer after layer. This process is repeated numerous times until the piece feels complete but still mysterious.
