Janise Yntema

Originally from New York, Janise Yntema received her formal art training at Parson’s School of Design/The New School in NYC and is listed, alongside Jasper Johns and Ai Wei Wei, as one of the “New School Notables”. She received the 2018 Vendéenne Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Fine Art Encaustic Community.

Yntema began her career as a member of A.I.R. Gallery in NYC before moving abroad and joining Cadogan Contemporary in London. Besides  solo exhibitions in NYC and London, she has shown internationally to include Josine Bokhoven Galerie, Amsterdam, Green Door Gallery, Brussels, The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh as well as this year's Summer/Winter Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Art, London. Yntema’s works are in public and private collections in Europe, The United States, The Middle East, and China.

From abstract large-scale mixed media to installation, her works have always focused on landscape. Having now worked exclusively with encaustic for over 20 years, she lectures on the global politics affecting farming, chemical usage and the changing environmental factors concerning encaustic artists, in an effort to promote grass-root environmental change.

She has recently completed the dissertation: 'Eco-activism- Framing the Geopolitics of Contemporary Landscape and its Representation’ for her MA in the History and Philosophy of Art at Kent University’s Paris School of Art and Culture.


Her publications include:

A Sense of Place, 2019 Cadogan Contemporary
The Temperature of Light, 2015, Kean University Press
The Quiet Landscape, 2015, Cadogan Contemporary
Still, 2009, Cadogan Contemporary
