Title: Crucifixtion of the Triumphant Jesus Christ
Expressionist Style
Original Authentic Oil on Canvas – 22.5″ Wide X 40″ Tall

I am a Christian, so I was inspired to do this work by my Savior Jesus Christ. I have been a Christian for over 45 years. He is a loving God who died for ALL peoples throughout the world. This crucifixion shows that He is triumphant over death – better known as the “Triumphant Christ” in many other artworks throughout the ages.

I hope that the viewers will see Him as multicultural and as loving in His eyes and face. This Christ symbolizes His acceptance of and love for ALL people and it would make my heart happy if He were seen as an ALL loving God in this unique creation of His multicolored body.

I chose to paint this in oil because oils are vibrant colors that last throughout lifetimes. This is a nighttime scene and the colors of the background were created over weeks of time with multiple layers of intense, mysterious shades of blue over a thick base of ivory. His body is a complex blend of shades from flesh, caramel and brown to mauve colors that are visually pleasing. It was important to me to create a multicolored background and a multicolored Christ because this unique Christ loves ALL people of every race.

Title: Tessie in Her Turban

Copyright 2020 Janice Marie Alexander “Panny”
Small African American Oil Painting
Expressionist Style
Original Authentic Oil on Canvas – 12″ Wide X 12″ Tall

This painting was created strictly from my imagination as are all of my portraits and is inspired by the beauty of the African American woman wearing the “Dhuku” and the graceful way that these women carry themselves. The textures created by the brush strokes and swirling of the oil paint give a wonderful and exciting movement to the painting. This is meant to show that her spirit is alive, which is also seen in the lustrous, multi-colored layers of light in her eyes.

This painting is also indicative of a larger body of artwork that I am creating for the Embrace Diversity in America Art Project. I started the Embrace Diversity in America Art Project to bring a new expressionist-style of artistic awareness to society that diversity is who we are as Americans and we should always embrace diversity without any room for prejudice. The Embrace Diversity in America Art Project will take two years to complete and will end in the winter of 2022 with exhibits of the artwork in Los Angeles.

When you look at a Vermeer, you see poetry on canvas. You see a deliberation that leads the eye to a focal point that he has chosen and you see a brilliance with light that is unmatched. You see what the artist is looking at in everyday life rendered spectacularly on canvas. With my artwork, everything comes from my imagination. All of my faces are uniquely created as I paint and nothing about the subject or environment is copied onto the canvas. I draw upon feelings, emotions, past experiences and prayerful spiritual guidance to create my artwork. The focus is not on the subject in the paintings but on the viewer. The subjects in my paintings are almost always staring intently at the viewer and as you look into their eyes you will see the empathy in them connecting to your very soul. They have come from the spiritual realm to abide on the walls of those they connect with.

Title: Shadows of Shiloh

Medium Size Oil Painting
Expressionist Style
Original Authentic Oil on Canvas – 16″ Wide X 20″ Tall

What inspired me to create this painting was how some of us struggle with our identity in life and where we fit in.  Some of us look in the mirror and use make-up to create an exciting and beautiful person because we want to be accepted and admired in society because society expects so much from us. In this painting Shiloh’s identity is divided between who she really is and the faces that define who she is in society. The colors represent the multifaceted beautiful faces that she has created to gain acceptance in society. She can be anyone that she chooses to be and she can create any face that she wants to present to society.  Shiloh is in the middle of an identity crisis and she is looking at you for answers and acceptance.

Small African Oil Painting
Expressionist Style
Original Authentic Oil on Canvas – 11″ Wide X 14″ Tall

This painting was inspired by my passion to capture the beauty of multiculturalism in our society and the beauty of the African women wearing the Dhuku and the graceful way that these African women carry themselves. The bold, rich, vibrant colors and thick, impasto textures created by the brush strokes and the palate knife give a wonderful movement to this brilliant, unique African painting. The volcanic movement in the primary colors on and around her face and intensely black eyes are meant to show that her spirit is alive.

Title: Voodoo Vibe

Medium Size Oil Painting on Canvas
Expressionis Style
Original Authentic Oil on Canvas – 16″ Wide X 20″ Tall

Most of my artwork is spontaneous.. Color is as important to me as subject matter. I grew up in Louisiana and lived there until I was a young adult. I stayed in the French Quarter of New Orleans for several years and worked for the Brennan’s Restaurants as a photographer. Voodoo was everywhere in the Quarter and so were psychics. The dress was loud and colorful and the expressions were just as loud and colorful. These Voodoo and psychic women had a certain “vibe.” I never participated in Voodoo, however – the mysterious way that these women who were involved in Voodoo looked and dressed was fascinating. I will always live with those memories and the many, many unique experiences that I lived through in Louisiana.

This painting was created strictly from my imagination as are all of my portraits and is inspired by the unique beauty of the African American woman. The textures created by the fast motion of the brush strokes give a thick movement to the painting. This is meant to show that her spirit is alive, which is also seen in her intense eyes. This painting is also an example of  the artwork style of a larger body of artwork that I am creating for the Embrace Diversity in America Art Project. You can discover more about this exciting project about the importance of diversity in America here on my website.

Title: The Sacredness of Sabeal

Small African American Oil Painting
Expressionist Style
Original Authentic Oil on Canvas – 11″ Wide X 14″ Tall

This painting was inspired by my love of African American culture and by a desire to capture the spirit of a new creation in the intense look of her eyes. As I created Sabeal, I felt through the entire creative process that she would be very special and she is. She is my favorite out of all the paintings that I have created. Sabeal keeps all of my secrets locked up inside of her and she will keep yours, too. She has many of her own as well. Sabeal stands in front of the fires that have burned her life but her spirit is still alive with the hopes and dreams that are only hers. She has forged a pathway through the blazing fires into the spiritual light of a faith that has sustained her. What almost killed her made her stronger. When there was no one there to help her here on earth she became her own best friend and she will be your best friend, too.

Medium Size Acrylic Painting on Canvas

Expressionist Style

Original Authentic Acrylic on Canvas – 16” Wide X 20” Tall

 

Minerva is the epitome of high-society and she is dripping with wealth.  She always has her own mind made up of exactly what she wants.  The colors of this painting are lusciously light in the background, face and hair and are offset by the intense red lipstick that she often wears. Minerva is staring at you and she can see right through to your very soul but as you look into her eyes you realize that her secrets are her own and she reveals nothing to you. All that you have access to is what she wants you to see – the face that she paints on every morning. This painting is also an example of another one of the styles that will be part of the Embrace Diversity in America Art Project that I am creating that will be finished in 2022.

This painting is about changing your life and transitioning into someone new.  She has come through a life that she now wants to leave behind. The beautiful blue and teal colors speak of the brightness of her future. Even though the transition is traumatic, she has an inner peace. She is composed and patiently waiting for her new self to begin. She is shedding herself of the old and embracing the new.

This painting is of a black Virgin Mary. She reaches out to the world and embraces ALL who come to her the same as the white Virgin Mary does. This Virgin Mary wants us to know that her colorful presence is meant to show that she loves and stands for our diversity. She embraces all people and also stands for equality and acceptance.  She is the epitome of love, compassion and grace. The pastel colors represent her meekness and humility and the gold highlights represent that she is spiritual royalty – the mother of the King of Kings.

This painting is the interpretation of the real Egyptian Queen Candice, who was African. She comes from my imagination of a beautiful and brave Egyptian queen. Her bold colors are meant to represent her boldness and bravery. She is a powerful and elegant woman who embraces wisdom, which has served her well. Her necklace represents her extreme wealth and elaborate dress. The movement in the colors on her body and in the background bring this gorgeous painting to life. Candice is truly an Egyptian treasure.

Original Authentic Oil on Canvas – 24” Wide X 24” Tall

This painting is whatever you interpret it to be. There is a wonderful movement between the shapes that touch each other. The gorgeous greens that intersect with the pleasant peach give the viewer a sense of calmness and serenity. The inspiration for this painting was to create an abstract that reflects my peaceful state of mind and how the intersection of my life with certain people brings calmness and pleasure to my life. Both the shapes and colors are complimentary to one another. These are unusual complimentary colors that work together effortlessly. The squares within the painting are reflected in the perfect square size of the painting. This is also a very well balanced painting that gives one a sense of satisfaction and spiritual serenity.
