Jane Haimes is a New York painter who works with flashe (a matte, vinyl-based paint) on wood , and in gouache, and drawing media such as charcoal and conte.

Her work is focused on reductive, planar surface illusions using curves and geometry to create contexts for color density and light relationships. There is a feature of figure and ground interchangeability that often is dominant in her work, where the solid and the less tangible surfaces seem to displace each other.

Jane has been exhibiting in New York City galleries for 35 years, in collections here and abroad, and is a professor of art at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
