Nottinghams very own Jane Thomson

Spend time with Jane’s paintings; on the surface they are beautiful and intricate, but like the layers they are made from, there is so much depth to these works. Figurative art exposes and addresses the concept of beauty. How we are perceived and how we perceive others.

Jane’s use of ink, pencil and pastel is delicate. Perfect medium for the female form. She then interlinks imagery with layers of printed thoughts either from photographic text or her own poetry.

Jane Thomson – Exalting the Everyday

Unfolding

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.
