Jane Burrows is a contemporary painter and printmaker, living and working in London and Hove. Her work is built around observational drawing, creating monotypes from small-scale graphite sketches.
Life drawing is central to Jane’s work, having herself been both muse and master in the life drawing studio. By playing with perspective, her work merges the abstract with the figurative, placing gender at its core to quietly question cultural expectations of the female form. To achieve a softly textured aesthetic, Jane uses water mixable oil paints, juxtaposing shape and colour, building up layers, and transferring the pigment from acetate to paper via rubbing.
Jane has held a number of solo shows in France, where she had a studio before moving to Hove, and has also exhibited widely across the UK. Jane is now a member of Hove Arts and has featured in Brighton Open Houses since 2016.
