Janet Wang is drawn to the visual vernacular of the social spaces we occupy. Her visual practice is pluralistic and materials-based, using traditional methodology alongside new media. Inspired by historical practices of still life and botanical drawings, juxtaposed with contemporary photographic sensibility, Wang created a series of drawings responding to the colours of information and mediated traces that are found in our naturalized developed landscapes. This body of work explores the surfaces, objects, and visual noise of the city that we find within the mediated thruways of the forest and intermittent pockets of resilient greenery in our cities. Much of the ink used to create this work was foraged from the interstices of urban spaces or harvested from the artist's garden.
Wang's work will be featured in the Showroom
