Artist Janis Woode was born in Prince Rupert, British Columbia in 1962. She obtained college certification as a long term care aide and spent the next three decades at various jobs in the health care field. She also received formal artistic training in the handling of materials, first at the Emily Carr College of Art and Design in 1985 and later at Capilano College. Her work with metal, which originated at Emily Carr, triggered a desire to learn to weld which opened the door to articulate her artistic vision. She has worked in metal ever since.

Janis credits her long work experience in health care as the source for many of her artistic inspirations. She says, “This work has given me special insight into the human experience. My hope is that my sculpture draws a common thread for the viewer, a thread that ties us together as people no matter how individual our experiences may be.”

Artist’s Statement
The desire to create art has been with me for as long as I can remember. It satisfies a kind of primal urge to construct. The winding of the figures, for me, is a very intimate experiencce. It is where I try to translate the emotion or movement of the piece. My inspiration has always come from personal experience. During my working years in health care, I have been witness to turbulence and tenderness. My sculptural work represents these moments. It is a sort of communication that I find hard to put into words. They are, for me, small windows into shared experiences.

Midnight Oil
During these past 33 years, White Rock Gallery has become one of the most durable art destinations in British Columbia and a well-regarded online venue across North America and beyond. We understand that original art cannot be pushy. It should leave our walls for yours only when it speaks to you personally and persuasively. Step one for the gallery is simply to assemble compelling pieces of art, by building strong relationships with our diverse array of professional artists. Step two is to provide a welcoming, unhurried environment in which the displays are always kept fresh and interesting. Running through all these years is the forging of respectful relationships with clients whom we’ve known in many cases for over two decades. And we’re always happy to speak with newcomers. A phone call is a great way to start if you aren’t able to drop by in person.
