A look back through the Magazine


M. Jane Balanoff, AB’76, was a practicing attorney before turning full-time artist. Of pieces like Road II (2007)— acrylic, oil stick, and mixed media on canvas, diptych, 36 x 60 inches each (detail at right), shown this summer at Ligne Roset in New York City—Balanoff says, “The grid and the use of multiples force the eye to look again and again. The repetitions suggest that one will begin to anticipate what shape or picture should come next.” See “On Exhibit.”
