Jane Maxwell art opening at Caldwell Snyder in San Francisco.

On March 5, 2009 Jane Maxwell will have an art opening of her new work at Caldwell Snyder Gallery in San Francisco. Jane and I used to show together at Hubert Gallery in New York and have a mutual admiration for each others work.

Jane's work uses layers of vintage fruit crate labels collaged with encaustic and paint on panel. Her subject is the female form and her concept deals with the female self body image and the feminine ideal in our culture.

Jane's use of the female form has hints of the Vargas girls of the 1940's. I especially love her tongue in cheek use of type in the fruit labels to make reference to women's body parts.

You can see more of Jane's work here and here.
