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., U.S.A.
In 2021, Ms. Stanton was selected for the Visiting Artists and Scholars Program at the American Academy in Rome.
She is a Member of the Art Students League and studied at the International Center of Photography, the School of Visual Arts, Rhode Island School of Design, NYU, and the Victor D'Amico Institute of Art. She participated in intensive photography workshops with renowned photographers Mary Ellen Mark (Oaxaca, Mexico), Sally Gall (Croatia), Peter Turnley (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) among others.
Her in-depth travel experiences, passion for cultural exploration, and 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 text, images, textures and ideas led her to collage, her preferred medium.
A solo exhibition of her work was presented on the East End of Long Island (May 18 - June 23, 2023) and a series of her collages were commissioned for a solo exhibition in Puglia, Italy in 2022. She was featured in a two-person exhibition at Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art in NYC in 2017, and her work has been selected for numerous group exhibitions on both the East and West coasts of the U.S. She is among the contemporary artists exhibited by FolioEast and was published in the 2020 volume HAMPTON ARTISTS: THE CURRENT WAVE.
