Deal Announcement: “Janet Werner: Sticky Pictures”
We are excited to announce that Sticky Pictures by Montreal-based artist Janet Werner is being published in collaboration with Griffin Art Projects and the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal for Fall 2022. Sticky Pictures examines and celebrates Werner’s evolving work of spatial and figurative explorations drawn from fashion magazines and art history. Her collage-like composite figures slip easily between articulations of beauty, gender, psychology and emotion, and her painterly operations are both unsettling and seductive. Werner’s unique combination of abstraction, fictional portraiture, and the rich history of painting are explored in this exquisite volume through texts by art and media historians, as well as an interview with the artist. Acquired by Senior Editor Steve Cameron. Releasing September 2022.
Janet Werner’s work has been featured in international solo exhibitions from New York to Los Angeles and as far away as Cape Town. Her work was included in the Prague Biennale in 2003 and is featured in the collections of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, Musée d’art contemporain in Montreal, The Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, Winnipeg Art Gallery, the Canadian Embassy in Berlin, the University of Lethbridge, Owens Art Gallery in Sackville, the Mendel Art Gallery in Saskatoon, Dunlop Art Gallery in Regina, McEvoy Foundation for the Arts in San Francisco, and numerous private and corporate collections.
