These paintings are bands of color comprised of cut sheets of hand-painted acrylic on
BFK Rives paper.

Each color relationship reads boldly from a distance, while upon closer inspection, more subtle color interaction becomes visible.
The edges between the colors are carefully constructed - some painted while others
cast shadows. With a shift in the viewer’s position, interference pigment will alter a specific color.

These paintings project out
an inch from the wall so as to reflect a colored shadow onto the wall.

I aim for the effects to surpass
optics and influence emotions.

Derek Leka awarded Assured Azure second place in the 33rd Annual Faber Birren National Color Award Show, October 2013. Out of 500 entries he selected work which
"kept with the spirit that color has the power to move us psychologically, emotionally, and intellectually. I was drawn to the works where the use of color was the primary subject.
I am referring to the way a group of colors work together as a whole, rather than the use of any single color. I then looked to the works that created an atmosphere, mood and experience through color alone."

Ian Alveteer, Assistant Curator Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York wrote:
"Jane Lincoln’s elegant and abstracted Color Zones bring to mind the work of painters of the 1960s and ‘70s such as Ellsworth Kelly, Brice Marden, or Blinky Palermo, who used solid planes of color to represent the world around them (Kelly’s canvases in particular are grounded in observed reality, whether the curve of the page of a book or a landscape glimpsed from a train window). The push and pull of various colors as they interact with one another is brought gracefully to life in Lincoln’s layered work – each area of color is a separately painted stratum she then carefully collages."

Alvateer awarded this painting second place in the 32nd Annual Faber Birren Color Award Show at the Stamford Art Association in September of 2012. Over four hundred entries were received and three awards were presented.
