"I'm not interested in representation, but in transformation. Transformation as it relates to past events, the perceived present and the imagined future.”
Jane Smaldone was born in New York City in 1953 and currently lives and works in the Boston area with her husband Mark and daughter Isabel, who has become one of her favorite subjects. She attended the State University of New York and attained her BFA in painting from the Massachusetts College of Art in 1976.
Smaldone's paintings combine her long-standing interest in landscape, still life and portraiture, interweaving the genres in a personal style inspired by art historical traditions as diverse as Chinese landscape painting, Surrealism and Folk Art.
She says about her work, "The flowers, portraits and landscapes that I have been working on are inspired in part by a dialogue between the real and the imagined. My subjects tend to be those important to my life and evocative for me in a visual, emotional or psychic way.”
Smaldone's work is included in many private, corporate and public collections internationally, including the Danforth Museum, the Peabody Essex Museum and Wellington Management. She has had numerous solo shows in the United States and Canada and participates in many group shows.
