JANE BURNS

ARTIST'S STATEMENT
I find my voice with absolute commitment; painting and drawing, editing and looking again. Extensive sketching on the Bruce Peninsula is the springboard for my understanding of the bones, struts and architecture in the land. Some paintings are conceived from real situations and others are pure imagination. Powerful images brew in my subconscious mind for lengths of time and then explode onto paper.

Currently, my imagery is flying creatures who buzz through greenery, wade in ponds or float over water. The tension between freedom and disaster reflects the eternal struggle.

Artists like birds, go through some interesting antics when trying to capture what they are after. I will perch for hours in the middle of a field sketching my subject. A fence offers little obstacle to my quest.
