About Jane Ianniello

The inspiration for my paintings is the glamour and drama of Hollywood movies of the 1940s and 50s. These movies often used expressionist lighting and camera shots. I appropriate and transform the black and white publicity stills from the films by painting them in arbitrary colours and placing them in incongruous and sometimes bizarre settings such as in rainforests, mangrove swamps, caves, Egyptian tombs, and beaches or with exotic animals such as snakes, flamingos, leopards or macaws. The resulting paintings are unsettling and mysterious. My paintings are created using acrylic paints, gels and mediums and often have interesting textures and a glossy or metallic surfaces.
