Janet Werner

Janet Werner’s paintings explore the power of iconic images over our imagination and memory by investing nameless figures with human subjectivity and emotion. The artist uses found images of anonymous figures in popular culture and imbues them with fictional personalities—resulting in work that operates within and against the genre of conventional portraiture. Werner’s composite portraits retain aspects of their originals while also embodying notions of transformation, innocence and loss.
