Jane Cheek’s brightly colored abstract canvases combine expressionist painting with fiber art. She uses embroidery to create subtle detail and sculptural fibers to add dimension to her work. The dichotomy of life informs her process and she often works with opposing elements as a result. Cheek’s art juxtaposes opacity and translucency; two dimensions and three; and structure and complete abstraction. Her color palette is inspired by nature, while her form and structure take inspiration from her life, both past and present. Cheek’s work is a daily practice of seeking and creating joy and her art is an examination of the beautiful mess that is life, love, motherhood, and humanity.
Jane Cheek attended North Carolina State University where she received a BA in Visual Arts Applications. She then completed her K-12 Visual Arts Teacher Certification at Eastern Carolina University. After graduating, she taught art for five years at a K-8 charter school in Durham. She now teaches private art classes and works as a studio artist. Cheek has exhibited her art throughout The Triangle, including at 311 Gallery, Artspace, and The Arts Center. When she isn’t working on art, she and her family can be found living the unschooling life at local parks and museums, and travelling as often as possible.
