JANA CARIDDI

USA

My visual language is ruled by play, femininity, identity, and nostalgia. Through flat fields of vivid color, quirky shapes, and estranged familiar objects, my imagination catalyzes the materialization of a bizarre and compelling world that has a tounge-and-cheek approach to darker and more personal concepts.

Using color palettes from toys I create images that are dynamic and sound, yet playful and eye catching. The process results in a symphony of chunky shapes and bold patterns. A hypnotic and delightful world manifests; a world where rainbows, animal print, and mysterious windows exist in harmony with scissors, raindrops and hearts either broken or too full to beat without bursting.

My paintings are rectangular windows into another world. With recollection and commemoration of my childhood, I create utopias where I invite humor and play to elevate modern ideas of girl-hood. It is crucial that my practice glorifies permission to be frivolous, decorative, and personal in art.
