Janine Baldwin PS

 

Artist's Statement:

Living on the North Yorkshire coast I am surrounded by beautiful moors, woodland and coastline - these natural environments are a constant inspiration, and sketches made directly in the landscape form the basis of my studio work. I use layers of charcoal, pastel and graphite to gradually create my paintings, and I feel these layers reflect the sheer depth of detail in the Yorkshire landscape, from the tiniest plants to vast forests on the horizon line. Influences include Joan Eardley, Cy Twombly and Kurt Jackson

Artist's Statement:

Alive with a dynamic expressive energy the landscapes of Jeannette Hayes resonate with a liberated optimistic creativity.
In works that are constructed out of lines and blocks of evocative colour, abstract activity is finely balanced with landscape reference. A love of the exquisiteness and drama of the natural world conveys itself in the drawn marks, gestures and accents of colour. Colour plays a central role - titles often contain a colour: ‘Spring Green’, ‘Orange Mousa’, or ‘Blue Snowing’ - setting an ambient mood to the recording of her experience of a place. This gives the works a poetic quality that is in keeping with the way they were conceived.
