BIO: Jane Swanston


BIO: Jane Swanston: When it comes to painting I consider myself a nomad. The journey - the struggle being more importance than the destination. The primary interest in the process is to create a fluid, layered or textured surface from which the work can evolve. From this point the work leads me. The markmaking, the apparent instability of surface, the drawn line and the discovered surfaces are linked to a continually questioning approach. One that is ever conscious of temporality and the fragility of existence. An awareness of history is inevitably present when I am working and I feel that this is related as much to personal memory as to a concern with paint and the tradition of what representation means.
