Society in Design: Works by Janey Fine

Society in Design: Works by Janey Fine. January 30th through March 20, 2014. Working on a digital canvas, Union College sophomore, Janey Fine, combines sanguine sentiments and imagery of the fifties with raw printing elements and social crit of the new millennium. Design principles of Gestalt theory pique intellectual interest, while the inclusion of vintage portraiture paints a pleasing, yet provocative, picture. Some works seem to take a direct and critical look at recent, current events, while bold typography plays an important role in many of Fine’s works, communicating both visually and conceptually with the viewer.

Outside-in: A Whimsical Exploration of Containment
