About

On the quest for sparkle...

Hello there!
Welcome to the online shop for my artwork! My name is Jeanne Cassanova and I am from New Orleans, Louisiana. I have been in love with art and its creation since I was old enough to eat crayons - so for a while now. I believe in the power of art to bring joy and happiness into the lives of not only the creator but the viewer as well. My work reflects a passion for color, abundance, saturation, sparkle and expression.

I began doodling on anything I could early on in life, and luckily had the support to believe art was worth pursuing. That support coupled with an obsessive drive and lust for art pushed me through many art classes, hours of practice and dedication, and two college degrees. I have my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Fine Arts with a concentration in painting and drawing. In addition to making my own artwork I also teach art at the high school level. I am very lucky to have art at the heart of my life!

This shop is a way for me to share my artwork to a larger audience. While I do have original paintings and drawings available, I am also offering archival prints of my work at a lower price. My process begins with a collage of images and ideas that I then draw. After this I will use acrylic paint, watercolor or colored pencils to render the image. In addition to painting and drawings I also create wooden cutout figures, handmade jewelry, and wall installations. I am excited about the variety of artwork I can make available through my Etsy shop and I hope you find something that sparks your interest within my work!

My artist statement:
The overwhelming, intricate and saturated life experiences that we are all submerged in, ranging from a shopping experience at a 99 cent store to watching a game show on TV with your grandma and her yippy dog, are all sources that I pull from and mix into my work. The odd and unique figures that are scattered throughout my work are intentionally designed to force the viewer to reconsider the facelessness of a stranger. The usage of pictorial motifs experienced as exotic, the development of highly ornamented backgrounds, the manipulation of off-beat saturated color, and the intertwining of layers of imagery in a mass of line work are all done in order to bring the surface of my paintings into a startling relationship with the sensual richness of the experience of life, culture, and world. I both embrace and poke fun at the issues surrounding my work all in a desire to archeologically dissect the many layers that exist in our world. I invite the viewer to visually untangle my paintings like a knotted mass of string in an experience that mimics that of the real world; an instant overwhelming lack of readability that is then followed by a submersion in sorting details and focal points.
In my work I intend to undertake a deep investigation into the expression of that which lies under a façade while revealing to the viewer that surface appraisals crumble when all layers are overturned. My focus is in creating work that clearly communicates culturally analytical themes via the utilization of optically rich icons and symbols. Through my analysis of culture, whether it be visual or conceptual, I hope to unravel meaningful insights in regards to the societal practices that swirl around us all.
