Jane Gibbs

For three years, Jane Gibbs studied drawing in the studio of an eminent professional artist and went on to study painting and printmaking at Leamington Art College. At the end of this period she trained under the abstract landscape painter, Richard Kidd. She is a member of the Association of Midland Artists.

Jane Gibbs’ paintings consist of planes of colour counter balanced by energetic brush marks, a visual exploration of the landscape she finds herself in; Africa, Corsica, England and, more recently, Ireland. Her feeling for the land and palette of observed colours combine to create images and sensations of abstracted landscapes. You feel as well as see the place.

The characteristics of a place; its innate design and balance plus an emotional and thoughtful response to what is seen, determine her work. Jane’s paintings have a depth. Emotional energy can partially produce a painting; the challenge is to technically control that energy without losing emotional excitement. Jane’s drawing ability and her understanding of colour provide that technical control. Sarah Stoten,
