Jane Burrows is a contemporary painter and printmaker. 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.
With a degree in Fine Art, and having studied Graphic Design at Chelsea School of Art, Jane has held a number of solo shows in France and also exhibited widely across the UK.
