Jana Dolenc

Born in 1964 - Slovenia


Slovenian artist Jana Dolenc studied on Academy of Arts in Ljubljana, where she graduated in 1988. After the study her first bigger cycle of paintings was inspired by the beautiful Soca river with its unique turquoise color, that bends its way among the rocks and gorges to the Adratic sea. In 1993 she married a Dutchman and moved to Holland where she continued painting on the second bigger cycle of paintings, dedicated to music. The choice of the colors corresponds with the atmosphere of the music and the painting hand follows the rhythm in expressive gestures. Parts of the instruments and hands that play them can be recognized as one unity. In 2003 she moved with husband and two children to Slovenia. Her latest cycle of paintings is abstract, although it originates from a typical Slovene architectural detail. But along the painting process it developed to less form binding and more color emphasizing. The compositions are made with distinguished technique of applying and removing layers of paint and use of collage. This way she creates a certain depth, that leads the spectators eye to imaginary and spiritually landscape. In almost thirty years of painting Jana Dolenc had around 40 solo exhibitions and her works were exhibited on numerous group expositions, especially in Slovenia and Holland, but also in Italy, Austria and Croatia. She made book illustrations for over twenty books and murals on private and company requests and is for many years a mentor of two groups of amateur painters.
