Jana Cariddi – Berlin, Germany
Jana Marie Cariddi is an American artist based in Berlin. She received her BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2015, and lived and worked in New Orleans before moving to Berlin. Her work has been exhibited in North America, Germany, and Japan and is included in several private collections.
Jana’s work is heavily infused with debauchery and desire, vanity and voodoo. Playing with notions of archetypical femininity, Cariddi’s work is infused with the sexuality, danger and loneliness behind the glitter and glitz of New Orleans. Via painting, installation and wall painting, she creates an intersection where the rose-colored glasses of girl-hood and the sharp realities of woman-hood meet. Her work takes form in the imaginary worlds in between, devised to humorize, heal and counterbalance the mundane act of maturing, aging and identifying as female.
