J’ Atelier9/J’A9 (@jatelier9) emerged after its Los Angeles based visionary founder, Janine Tang, began her movement towards a circular economy by sourcing recycled repurposed salvaged materials into her fine arts.
J’A9 reshapes the transcendent beauty of innovative repurposing & recycling.. where her art becomes the vessel. She juxtaposes the dichotomy of consumerism against salvaged upcycled adaptive reuses of recycled waste.
Many of the selectively curated eco-conscious materials utilized into her works have an inherent patina, imperfection, and rawness. Artisanally combined, they merge into an insightful tapestry of ethereal, whimsical, and sustainability.
J’A9 translates the interconnectedness of the world through her works by highlighting society’s sensationalism of media, elements of globalization, planet preservation, glorification of capitalism, technological dependence, world conflict, joy, love, nature, fashion, lifestyle, human complexities, materialism, and multiple facets of duplicity.
She dissects aspects of life through societal conditioning and programming from various narratives, while also creating a wondrous majestic world of optimism and reflection.
