Artwork by Jane Ehrlich

Jane Ehrlich attended the School of Visual Arts, Pratt Institute and The Brooklyn Museum School. Her exhibition of paintings at the Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center are part of an ongoing series called Fragmented Transparencies that have a single “color field” activated by the addition of accumulations of transparent and opaque layers of white, straight, zig zag, and curvilinear layers. “The layers refer to the base color implying a degree of spatial context but intentionally maintain a shallow depth, creating tension within the visible field…forms are painted one at a time, each form referring to the one before as it transports its individual information, nuances and accidents of application,” she explains. “The shapes repeat and transmute as they inhabit the painting but never as pattern; as the surface is mapped some forms collide, some connect and some coalesce, and through this process, the layers of monochromatic transparencies, and tonal variations begin to resonate with light and the painting becomes activated.”  Ehrlich has exhibited in New York, Florida, New Hampshire, and Maine, with her work recently showcased at Radius 50 (Woodstock, NY), 72 A -One A Silvermine Gallery (New Canaan, CT), Hudson Eye (Hudson, NY), Lockwood Gallery (Kingston, NY), Salon Zurcher – Women of Spirit (New York, NY), Mohawk Hudson Regional (Albany, NY), and 3 Abstract Artists – Susan Eley Fine Arts (New York, NY) to name a few. A recipient of the 2022 and 2023 Community Arts Grant, New York State Council of the Arts, Ehrhlich lives and works in Hudson, NY and is the founder of the annual Open Studio Hudson.
