‘Unfolding‘ by Jane Thomson – 100cm x 80cm x 7cm – Mixed Media / Board – £1,495
Nottingham-based painter and lecturer Jane Thomson produces unique and sensual monochrome pieces using layers of print, paper and text.
Her figures, white and pure, emerge from a chalky void like sculptures. The elegant poses of her fragile subjects are depicted as if in alabaster or marble, elevating the everyday lives of these women to the realm of heroes and historical figures depicted by Michelangelo and his peers.
Her latest work is inspired by the timeworn frescos found in the chapels and villas of Florence and recall the high art of the ancient world.
This is most clearly seen in Study for Invisible Ink which appears as much a lover’s sketch as an alternative perspective of Diana of Gabii, sculpted by Praxiteles – a pioneer of depictions of the nude female form – more than 2000 years ago.
‘Invisible Ink‘ by Jane Thomson – 34cm x 18cm x 4cm – Mixed Media / Board – £395
‘Invisible Ink’ is a piece which rewards reflection, appearing also as a female response to Rodin’s famous ‘The Thinker’.
The work of Jane Thomson is composed of distorted poems, fragments swirling around the central figure. The effect is one of revelation and concealment, exposure and mystery, with a sense of hidden depth in the layers of print, Oils and pencil.
Jane Thomson will be displaying artwork within our ‘Fragments’ exhibition 30th June until 7th July. Do come and view these fabulous artworks.
