Jana Harper is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores the themes and tensions between materiality and transcendence, chance encounters and human willfulness, relationships and connectivity, and the natural world and human acts of meaning making. Materially, her work takes many forms: drawing, printmaking, artist’s books, sculpture, photography, installation, social practice, and video. Originally trained as a printmaker, Jana has a broad definition of what constitutes her practice. She divides her time between teaching, research, and creative activity: working both individually and in collaborative settings.
Jana created New Walks in an Old Field during her time here.
