Janet Rickus is meticulous in her approach to the still life compositions she renders in oil on canvas and panel. Mostly self-taught, Rickus has applied her deft hand to painting the forms of fruits, vegetables, vessels, and linens arranged on shelves for over a decade. She does not alter the shapes, sizes, or tones of the objects before her in the studio, choosing rather to accurately capture their natural permutations. Carefully composed according to form and color, the objects assume personalities that convey a study of personal relationships and attitudes. The stilled objects become animated, turning toward and seeming to gaze at one another, instilling the work with a unique and contemporary take on the history of the still life.

Rickus received the Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Grant in Painting in 2006. Her work has been shown in galleries across the northeast, including Hoorn-Ashby in New York, and was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Springfield, MA in 2001. Rickus lives and works in Great Barrington, MA.
