White-line woodblock prints developed in Provincetown,
Massachusetts in the early 1900s. I combine this century-old print technique with a contemporary grid format to show my specific sensibility
for color.

These abstract prints are studies on the subtle and disparate characteristics of color. The inexhaustible combinations of color have become a journey where the practice of color mixing continually leads to new discoveries.

The series of prints titled
Color Conversations consist of two grids of nine squares each. The print size has each square measuring 1 ¼".
One square in the left grid is identical in color to one square in the right grid. This matching pair is separated and placed so as to have the same color appear different. When looking at these prints some colors meld together, while others pop forward and back. They appear soft or intense, quiet or raucous.

Viewed together what emerges is an awareness of the astonishingly limitless qualities of color.

The curator, Hannah Israel wrote: “Jane Lincoln’s exploration of color takes on a structured yet expansive quality. Its boundless aspects become organized within a metaphorical grid, providing a framework for the limitless combinations found in her abstract prints. Each piece serves as a unique cell within this color grid, systematically uncovering the nuanced and diverse attributes of color while revealing unexpected revelations in the process.”
