SOLO EXHIBIT OF EXPRESSIONIST FEMALE NUDES BY ARTIST JAN SMALL

‘Essentially Feminine’:  Expressions of feminine power painted in oil on canvas by Jan Small at the Mezzanine Gallery at Hotel Triton

The rich color palette of Jan Small’s most recent nudes combined with confident brushwork imbue a strong kinetic energy that radiates from each work.  Essentially portraits of feminine power, all at once bold, sensual and assertive, the female form as rendered by Ms. Small communicates a statement of empowered confidence informed by positive body image. 

Evident in the emotive quality of her lines and daring color palette, “I am most influenced by the French Impressionists and German Expressionists,” Jan reveals.

Oakland native Jan Small began her formal art training at the age of thirteen. Ms. Small studied at CCAC (California College of Arts & Crafts), SFAA (now Academy of Art University) and CASA (College for Students & Artists Aboard) in Paris, France. She has studied under Stella Stevens of the Chicago Art Institute and Howard Brodie and Jacques Fabert from SFAA. Her work has been shown previously at Maxwell Gallery in S.F. and most recently at ArtworkSF Gallery.  Ms. Small currently resides in San Francisco.

This exhibit is part of an ongoing series that spotlights emerging Bay Area artists and is produced by McKinley Art Solutions and hosted by the Mezzanine Gallery at Hotel Triton.
