Jane Hodgson, SWAc, MA Arts & Ecology, BA (Hons) Fine Art.
Jane is a mid career artist with 30 years of creative background. Her ongoing narrative is the celebration of our great landscape, cross-referenced to our destruction of our planet.
A shift this year is to using a transparent organic material as a ground on which to paint, alludes to the need for all of us to care more about the damage of using plastics; this coupled with oil paint (more abuse of the planet), but painted in bright transparent earth and sea colours with added gold, aims to remind us of the beauty and richness that is our earth.
“The pleasure of pretty art draws on dissatisfaction: if we did not find life difficult, beauty would not have the appeal it does”. (Art is Therapy, Alain de Botton and John Armstrong).
Jane hopes you enjoy her work – the organic material to remind us to be more careful, the colour and gold as celebration of beauty, the underlying narrative – our planet is changing, we need to take care, but it is still beautiful.
