Janine Covelli - Artist Statement

These works are a small sampling of ongoing works that I am currently exploring. Although the works appear to be different in context all of my work is an exploration of the energy within a boundary and how far this can be pushed. These works are about having something happen on the paper, not only within the traditional conceptions: edge, center, perspective, or point of view, but also to move beyond and to explore from every angle including moving beyond boundaries. The energy within the works is what attracts the viewer into an interaction, or relationship with it. In these works I am able to develop a language in which I can translate the concepts of time and the development of relationships in both the physical world and human nature into a visual language of marks and colors.
