Michael Janis: Echoes of Leaves and Shadows

Michael Janis: Echoes of Leaves and Shadows

September 16 - October 15, 2016

Maurine Littleton Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of "Echoes of Leaves and Shadows," a solo exhibition of new glass works and sculptures by Washington, DC, artist Michael Janis. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with Maurine Littleton Gallery.
Michael Janis has developed and refined an intuitive technique over many years where he manipulates crushed glass powder into detailed images and portraits. An artist who embraces the simple expression of narrative, Janis’ concise work perfects visual storytelling with fantastic imagery. His work explores the unseen sides of life, longing and loneliness, juxtaposed with fragile beauty.
