Jane’s work as an artist references the ever changing outlines of the landscape. As an artist she considers the fragility of the environment we inhabit by creating bold abstract paintings and prints, often on a large scale.
Her inspirations come from regular visits each year to the Ring of Beara on the West Coast of Ireland. Its rugged coastlines and the structural shapes within the landscape are important to her ideas. At heart she is a city girl and loves the hustle and bustle of London where she has lived for many years. Due to this in her work there is an obvious process of deconstruction and reconstruction. For Jane the act of painting is a continuous process always changing, taking away to create something new. This is an integral part of her work and what she considers representational of our disposable society.
In her practice her work is a combination of paintings and prints. Both complement each other but they are not reliant on each other in the process of layering and the exploration of mark making. Prominent in her work is the use of bright fluorescent colours often contradictory but pushing the boundaries of traditional landscape painting. In her most current work she has been using more subtle tones and with a hint of shimmer.
