Janet Dake is a painter from Kentucky, now living in New Orleans. Her paintings are primarily large-scale, representational pieces that focus on figures of women and queer people. Through captivating figures and intricate backgrounds, Dake's paintings tell a snapshot of a storyline. These stories are meant to boldly and beautifully reflect contemporary issues and cultural phenomena. Though superficially beautiful, the content of her work often plays with discomfort.
