Artist Statement: I wish bumble bees were blue in real life and that my big sister would turn into a peacock just for one Sunday night dinner. She could sit at the head of the table and we would admire her. My little sister is as fierce as a lion and I like flowers and the moon. Jane Parkes.
Medium: Mixed media on paper
Dimensions: 21 x 35 cms
CHG Director's Statement: Jane Parkes' figurative paintings, set in a fantasy world could be considered theatrical. I do know the time spent on developing her compositions is of little care to Jane because when she is art making she is completely fulfilled and taken to a place which provides comfort!
Jane’s exacting and considered compositions reflect a high degree of skill and control, which she has developed with the gouache medium. Jane’s inspiration commences with an image which creeps into her consciousness “a shape or a wall paper design; the ideas develop”.
Jane has an appreciation of all things art and the joys of life including music, art teaching, theatre, acting, animals, people and their care etc. Her paintings, often drawn from her fantasy life of thoughts and dreams are also based upon life’s experiences and happenings.
