Silk Art - Landscapes/Still Life
Silk Art - Landscapes and Still Life
" Good art helps us see familiar places with fresh eyes. Work by artists as diverse as Chiang Yee and Andy Goldsworthy all help us gain a deeper understanding of the landscape by making us look beyond the surface. This is a strong theme running through all of Jane's work. With influences like Beardsley, Hokusai and psychedelic album covers Jane reintroduces us to the landscape, getting us to see beyond the everyday. Jane uses painted silk, a technique that introduces randomness and change into her art. This approach reminds us that the landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales are not static and unchanging, but altered, mutable and evolving. "
