Jan Jahnke is both spontaneous and calculated in her approach to screen printing. Nest-like twigs and grasses occupy a generous portion of her landscapes, causing the eye to linger as they seemingly transform into a peaceful, subtle arrangement of texture and color. The concentration is on detailed mark-making , line and shape as she applies multiple layers of both transparent and opaque ink, editing and reapplying until she reflects the natural world with a rich surface quality of texture and depth. Her work is in numerous residential, corporate and health care collections.
