Janet Cass is a fine art photographer and painter living and working in Avalon, NJ and Palm Springs, CA. She creates large fine art photographic images that are meant to be felt as much as seen, and each image is essentially an abstract painting. Janet does minimal post-production and relies on what comes through the lens. “I like to allow matters to evolve, letting the images come to me, and a remarkable variety of very different images are the result."
The “Song of Solitude” photographic portfolio is the result of Janet’s exploration of the saltgrass that thrives along with New Jersey’s coastal barrier islands. She makes daily treks into the tidal wetlands in her kayak, no matter the weather, and dares to take her camera with her. She paddles deep into the hidden grassland to places most people have no idea exist, inaccessible by motorboat and completely ignored by cars speeding over bridges. The intimacy of being out alone and so close to the water permits her to see, feel, and absorb this vast wilderness. She believes her images are of timelessness, contemplation, and presence.
When not photographing, Janet turns her attention to her painting. Despite the growing number of followers and collectors of her fine art paintings, she remains an ever-evolving subject of art with considerable patience and discipline and is still willing to take risks in cultivating and refining her creative processes.
Inspired by nature and the environment, Janet's abstract paintings might be considered wholly minimalist and restrained. The reality is that there is an intensity and vibrancy in her work that is enhanced by her layering techniques and selection of vivid colors.
Janet Cass's paintings and fine art photography have been featured in a number of competitions and exhibitions in the East Coast and California. Each year, she splits her time working in her studios situated along the waterways of Avalon, New Jersey, and the other in Palm Springs, California.
