Living in New York, British born, Janine Menlove is a photo-based artist. Through constructed photography, she explores relationships between object, place, and time. Using only her original photographs, Janine creates imagery in a blend of significance and whimsy that impart narratives of personal and/or global reference.
Janine's prolific career in commercial photography created opportunities and awareness in a myriad of subjects that inform her artwork today. Also traveling the globe on thousands of assignments, photographing cars, places, architecture, and celebrities created an extensive archive of photographs central to her visual story telling.
The allure and the mastery of photomontage is power over place a time, with the practical capacity to breakdown limitations between imagination and reality. Narratives are created with the compilation of diverse and fragmented visual information, combinations are unlimited, and my process includes the somewhat colossal detail of choices and possibilities.
Janine's artwork is exhibited in solo, and group shows and is in private and corporate collections. Janine lives with her husband just North of New York City on the banks of the Hudson River. She is an artist member of Upstream Gallery in Hastings-on-Hudson, always carries a camera, and appreciates nature and culture in the Hudson Valley and New York City.
