A Friends Exhibition in support of the RWA.
Colour, form and movement inspire and underpin this exhibition of paintings. Born and raised in Aberdeen and the surrounding agricultural countryside, Cartney developed an early appreciation of the character of architecture in the city, and livestock on the land. Both subjects, abiding loves, form the body of work on show. After spending a lengthy period in London and the south-east, Jane Cartney relocated to Weston-super-Mare where the light, the local stone architecture and the surrounding topography have brought renewed inspiration. Traditional preparatory work, coupled with the added dimension of digital photography lead Cartney to explore abstractive expression in her art practice. Much of her work has developed into series of paintings surrounding and expanding inspiring subjects. On show here are examples from the Weston-super-Mare series, the Wadham Beach series, the pheasant series, recent livestock paintings and other work.
