Jane Szabo – Common Thread

Nov 30, 2015

Jane-Szabo_art_1aJane Szabo received a MFA from Art Center College of Design, and her photography has won awards and been exhibited nationally.

Art Share L. A. calls itself “a home for the arts.” To that end, a 28,000 square foot warehouse has been renovated with areas on the ground floor for events, exhibits, and classes, while upstairs has 30 subsidized live/work artist lofts.

Our mission is to support artists by providing them a creative environment for them to reside, develop, perform and exhibit.… providing connection to the community for shared benefit. (Art Share L. A.)

Common Thread is a group exhibit with the opening reception on December 5. Participating artists “all use textiles, whether as found object, personal talisman, alternative invention, literal materials in abstract pattern-seeking, or as symbolic, narrative elements in a larger story.”

I am deeply interested in the human condition and my work explores how we live, how we relate to each other, and how we feel about our identity. My current body of work merges fabrications with conceptual photography in a series of self-portraits, playfully exploring issues of identity in an ambitious juxtaposition of fashion, sculpture, installation and photography. Though creating photographic works, my background as a painter and installation artist, as well as a career that included creating custom props and scenery, strongly influence my artistic creations.
—Jane Szabo

For this exhibit, Szabo’s work is a series called “Reconstructing Self,” examples of which may be seen below.
