Artist Statement: I have been expressing my joy of art with paint, shapes and colors since I was very young. I started as a painter, evolved into a photographer, and eventually began hand-painting on my Cibachrome prints over 35 years ago. Before Photoshop I found a way to express a new magical reality with the vivid, saturated and unrealistic colors I painted into each photographic print.. For the past 25 years I have been scanning my one-of-a-kind hand-painted prints and my library of 35mm Kodachrome color transparencies taken over my lifetime. I paint, collage and enhance them with Photoshop, creating my own idyllic world! My art has been shown all over US & Europe in many solo exhibitions including: Butler Institute of American Art, Ohio; Carnegie Art Museum, Oxnard, CA; Laguna Art Museum, CA; Petersen Automotive Museum, LA, CA; LA County Natural History Museum, CA; Monterey Museum of Art, CA; Nancy Hoffman Gallery, NYC, NY; L’Image Gallery, Rome, Italy; MAD Gallery, Milan, Italy, Colorinda Gallery in Lisbon, Portugal, Louis Stern Gallery, West Hollywood, CA; Wall Space, Santa Barbara, CA. MAD Gallery in Milan, Italy. I have also been included in countless museum group exhibits and Art Fairs world wide over the last 30 years, and collected by museums, foundations, corporations and individuals. Numerous magazine articles, magazine and book covers, two museum exhibition catalogues and two books have been published of my art, Garden Tales and Car Tales. Recently I have had the honor of being asked to install my art in many wonderful public spaces on exhibit for 10 years: In 2013 I installed more than 70 large art works at the UCLA Law Library and UCLA Anderson School of Management, including a 5x10 commissioned artpiece. In 2013 I also installed an exhibit of my “Joy Rides” series printed on aluminum at the Car Museum in Oxnard CA. In 2014 I installed 20 new very large artworks printed on aluminum at the UCSB Gervirtz Graduate School of Education. In 2015 I created the First Vertical Art Gallery at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health: I got a drab eight story stairway freshly painted bright white, fortunately it had good lighting & I filled it with my large artworks. This is about encouraging people to make a healthy choice and use the stairs instead of the elevators, and of course being drawn into the stairwell by my exciting art exhibit! In 2016 I installed 15 more large artworks on aluminum at the UCLA Young Graduate Library, in a huge first floor study hall! In 2017 I installed one new large artwork in the UCLA Luskin Conference Center next to Ed Moses, Peter Alexander, Laddie John Dill, Lita Albuquerque, etc. I just finished a 4 month exhibit in the new Art Gallery at the Santa Barbra Botanic Garden of “Jane Gottlieb Fantasy Gardens”. In January - April 2018 I will have a one person show at the UCSB Museum of Art, “Jane Gottlieb Photographs France”!
