Jane Burton

 

 

Jane’s paintings, like her sculptures, work with layers, texture and mark-making. Consciously choosing abstract work for her painting, she wanted a departure from the figurative sculptural work; to go beyond the familiar. The subject has changed, yet the emphasis on layers, color, and line, as well as conceptual issues of human impact, and perception have not.

Her paintings are a visual interpretation of the tension between chaos and imposed order, the concrete and the imaginary, the known and unknown. Scientific and metaphysical concepts of collective consciousness, relative truth, natural order, and quantum entanglement are explored.

“Each piece will evoke its own emotion, but overall, I’d hope the initial impact would be one of discovery, fascination, empowerment, and revelation. It’s the time after the initial impact that interests me the most. The subtle shift in light, in color, the quality of the line. The fingerprints. The discovery in the layers of underlining bits of color… marks from stories from the past that have been covered up and long forgotten.”

“My sculptures and my paintings will always influence each other… it’s all my art. I once had a professor that would tell me that each piece is pregnant with the next. That’s how I feel about the two mediums. The process is different, the outcomes vary, but the birth comes from me.”
