Janice Stanton is a collage artist and fine art photographer. Born in Montreal, Canada, she now works from studios in New York City and Bridgehampton, N.Y.
Following art history courses at New York University, she studied at the Art Students League, The International Center of Photography, the School of Visual Arts and the Victor D'Amico Institute of Art. She participated in photography workshops with Mary Ellen Mark (Oaxaca, Mexico), Sally Gall (Croatia), Peter Turnley (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) among others.
These in-depth travel experiences, her passion for cultural exploration, and her refined eye inform her work in all media. She finds in her surroundings the texture and detail from which she creates abstract moments from everyday life. This strong visual sense and her interest in the interplay of words, images, textures and ideas led her to collage, her preferred medium.
Her collages were featured in a two-person exhibition at Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art in New York City in 2017; and her work has been selected for numerous group exhibitions in New York City and the East End of Long Island. She is among the contemporary artists chosen for the online gallery FolioEast.
Ms. Stanton’s work has received numerous awards and honors and has been acquired for public and private collections.
