Jana Papantoniou

Jana Papantoniou is a legally blind artist based in Naarm/Melbourne. Papantoniou utilises drawing and printmaking to challenge preconceived notions of sightedness through the perspective of non-normative vision. Realising her work through a firmly pictorial lens, Papantoniou’s practice challenges assumptions conflating blindness with non-visual experience. Exclusively working within black and white, her practice is captivated by extremes of brightness and shadow, and the intensity as the two collide. With an ongoing fascination for the oscillation between figuration and abstraction, Papantoniou encourages a visual overwhelm anchored by something deeply human.
