Abstracts of Nature from Jane Shoenfeld

Jane Shoenfeld is an artist, poet and teacher living in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her work includes landscape abstractions in pastel and mixed media as well as small mixed media pieces based on memories and dreams. Her paintings are abstractions derived from many years of careful observation of nature. “On occasion, I will deliberately work with a motif, such as the shape of a banana leaf, or the silhouette of a fish. Most of the time, I am guided by visual and body memories that are less conscious - memories of how plant life moves, how it leans and swirls in the wind, how water drifts and churns, how light scatters, how there are deep pockets of darkness on a sunny day. Much of the time, we are unaware of layers of memory that affect our perceptions and that is how it is with my painting,” she said.

Jane Shoenfeld's work has been included in exhibitions through the Smithsonian Institute, Las Cruces Museum, Millicent Rogers Museum, Brooklyn Museum and is also collected in New Mexico through purchase awards through NM Art in Public Places.Her work is in numerous private and corporate collections, including the Jack Ziegel Collection, the Natalie Goldberg Collection,NYNEX Corporation, and the Ghost Ranch Conference Center Collection.
