Continuing Jane’s obsession with colour, she is now exporing a simplicity, alongside complexity in her new work. Janes new paintings aim to evoke in the viewer their own narratives; her new series Complexity and Calm, is inspired by the landscape, both man-made and natural. She is a colourist who has embraced the simplicity of stripes, balance, intricacy and harmony that reflects our earth and humanity.
“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. Phaidon Press Ltd, London, 2017, pp19.).
