Janice Stanton is a collage artist and fine art photographer. Born in Montreal, Canada, she now works from studios in New York City and Bridgehampton, N.Y., U.S.A.
In 2021, Ms. Stanton was selected for the Visiting Artists and Scholars Program at the American Academy in Rome.
Previously, she studied at The Art Students League, The International Center of Photography, the School of Visual Arts, Rhode Island School of Design, NYU, and the Victor D'Amico Institute of Art. She participated in intensive photography workshops with renowned photographers Mary Ellen Mark (Oaxaca, Mexico), Sally Gall (Croatia), Peter Turnley (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) among others.
Her in-depth travel experiences, passion for cultural exploration, and refined eye inform her work in all media. She finds in her surroundings the texture and detail from which she creates abstract moments from everyday life. This strong visual sense and her interest in the interplay of text, images, textures and ideas led her to collage, her preferred medium.
Her collages were featured in solo exhibitions in Sag Harbor, NY in 2023; in Puglia, Italy in 2022; and in a two-person exhibition at Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art in NYC in 2017. Her work has been selected for numerous group exhibitions on both the East and West coasts of the U.S. She is among the contemporary artists selected for the 2020 volume HAMPTON ARTISTS: THE CURRENT WAVE.
WHO I AM
I am a collage artist whose work explores themes of knowability, memory, and the human condition.
