Jane Wachman is a self-taught artist, her work as an artist references the ever-changing outlines of the landscape. Her gestural paintings exude energy and movement and are often on a large scale. Janeâ€™s paintings are inspired by travel. Pulling together memories of places has travelled to through mark-making. Influences as far as India and Morocco sit alongside more familiar places such as the Sussex Downs and Irish coastline. When talking of her work Janes states â€œMy latest work brings together all that I love, from the wild colours of India and Morocco to the coastal hues of West Sussex and the Downs. My paintings are intuitive: the colours are an extension of my personality coming through however hard I try to curb them. As an artist, I reference the ever-changing outlines of the landscape and identify with shape, form and structure. I am influenced by all that I encounter, seen through a filter shaped by my love of the new and the different.â€
