How many exhibition works:
Von Lintel Gallery is delighted to present “Neither Here Nor There” by Jane Handel, our first exhibition with the artist.
As she evokes a specific story in each work, Handel addresses broader topics ranging from the nature versus nurture conundrum to the human condition, and how we manifest our intentions. In this collection of works on paper, she uses found photographs and objects, old letters, and written words to explore these themes and their interconnection.
Handel's art is tied to her lifelong activism, driven by not only political issues, but her individual passions. In addition to works addressing abuse of women and children, she is currently interested in culturally relevant issues related to ideas of gender fluidity and environmental degradation. Handel presents her points of view with a delicate touch that prioritizes beauty.
In 1990, Handel founded SpiderWoman Press where she embraced letterpress printing and, in collaboration with other artists, creates beautiful, limited-edition, handmade books which she describes as “a true labor of love.” She now divides her creative energy between being an author and visual artist.
“Jane Handel’s work is rooted in a deep sense of situational awareness of her physical surroundings and the cultural macrocosms that informs it.” – The Basic Premise, 2018
Jane Handel’s work has been featured in public collections such as the New York Public Library, Brown University, and the Maryland Institute of Art. She lives in Ojai, California.
