Tarring & Feathering the Nest (Ogallala Aquifer)

Favorites Week: Mixed Media

All this week the Daily Palette will be celebrating some of our favorite Iowa-connected artists working in mixed media.

Tarring & Feathering the Nest (Ogallala Aquifer), acrylic, sand, silk thread, currency, pencil, 16.75" x 16.75" (framed), 2012

Jane Robinette was born and raised in Iowa and has lived in Iowa most of her life.  She has enjoyed written and visual creation since childhood.  After obtaining degrees and working in social work and law, she launched the Iowa Women Artists Oral History Project and began to do more of her own creative work.  In addition to painting and writing, she creates and maintains websites for several clients.  This year, she has taken on the challenge of creating a little art every day; you can see her "daily janes" on her blog.

Jane writes, "I create mostly small and medium-scale paintings (acrylic or oil) and mixed media pieces.  Some pieces include fiber, photography, and other media.  Some works feature my original poems, allowing the interplay of the textual and the visual.  My work arises from the natural world, life experiences, contemporary events, free-flowing paint or wordplay, and the voice that speaks when I dare to listen."
