From a childhood living in different cultures and in different parts of the World, Carl Janes has developed with a global eye and an acute understanding of our human connection. His work is not limited by medium or style but rather follows recurring interests that then spawn his concepts. This enables constant exploration in to new ways of communicating within a continued development. His work digs in to the discussion of our contemporary human condition and concentrates on manifesting a positive reality. Constantly identifying restrictions and limitations in order to move beyond them, Janes seeks to affect our collective consciousness by creating structures that enable self-realization and encourage a dynamic being.
Janes’ formal education was consciously spent in different contexts and broadened by extensive personal travels. Explorations of The Self have been enriched by friendships that cross cultural divides and experiences that vary from transformation in sacred spaces to bearing witness to active war zones.
