Jane Gottlieb - Q2 Art Competition - Artist Portfolio Magazine
I have been expressing my joy of art with paint, shapes and colors since I was very young. I started as a painter, evolved into a photographer, and eventually began hand-painting on my Cibachrome prints over 35 years ago. Before Photoshop I found a way to express a new magical reality with the vivid, saturated and unrealistic colors I painted into each photographic print.. For the past 25 years I have been scanning my one-of-a-kind hand-painted prints and my library of 35mm Kodachrome color transparencies taken over my lifetime. I love to paint, collage and enhance them with Photoshop, creating my own idyllic world! I produce archival museum quality chromogenic prints, archival glossy canvas artworks, and my favorite new digital medium: archival printing on aluminum. My art has been shown worldwide in many solo exhibitions including: Butler Institute of American Art, Ohio; Carnegie Art Museum, Oxnard, CA; Laguna Art Museum, CA; Petersen Automotive Museum, LA, CA; LA County Natural History Museum, CA; Monterey Museum of Art, CA; Nancy Hoffman Gallery, NYC, NY; L’Image Gallery, Rome, Italy; MAD Gallery, Milan, Italy, Colorinda Gallery in Lisbon, Portugal, Louis Stern Gallery, West Hollywood, CA; Wall Space, Santa Barbara, CA. I have also been included in countless group exhibits and Art Fairs around the world over the last 30 years, and collected by museums, foundations, corporations and individuals worldwide. Numerous magazine articles, magazine and book covers, two museum exhibition catalogues and two books have been published of my art, Garden Tales and Car Tales.
