Janis Kerman: Featured Artist Exhibtion
March 22 - April 12, 2018
Facèré presents an exhibition of work by Québécois artist Janis Kerman. A practicing jeweler for over forty-five years, Janis Kerman is a master of space, texture, and color. Janis designs and fabricates in her coach house turned studio in Québec. Drawings and sketches are central to her creative practice. Each piece is distinct in design and in materials, often featuring rare and unusual stones that Janis has sought out or commissioned. “There is a symbiotic relationship between fine art and all forms of design - a conceptual fluidity where influences may move freely between disciplines promoting exchange and evolution. I am inspired by the form, colors and textures of objects both artistic and common: architecture, furniture, paintings, ceramics, fashion...My work is based on geometric shapes. Balance rather than symmetry.” -Janis
