JANICE STANTON
These collages were created for a 2022 solo exhibition at the historic property, Castello di Ugento, in Puglia, Italy.  The exquisite frescoes at the Castello with their stunning detail, rich, sometimes half-faded color, and representation of Greco-Roman myths, captured my imagination.  They suggested to me a theme that runs through much of my work:  the mystery of 'what lies beneath'. Contrasting and linking past and present, ancient and contemporary, they speak to history, memory and connections.
