Jane Masters lives and works in Providence, RI. Using the scratchboard technique that originated in the 19th century she creates highly detailed abstractions. Using nothing but knives and sharp tools the art of scratchboard is creation through removal. In Masters’ case what remains are dizzying op art spirals and ribbons of intersecting waves. The stark black and white adds to the timelessness of designs that often resemble microscopic magnifications of viruses, cells, and other things found in biology.
