Colour is integral to Jane Pryor’s studio paintings and collages, which demonstrate a preoccupation with the edge and the object-hood of the painting. Individual paintings are self-referential, making quotations from other work in the studio and acknowledge the history of abstract painting. Some paintings are paired with other works giving rise to new interpretations. She is interested in the inherent mutability of things, that nothing is fixed in appearance or interpretation.
Jane is London born, now working from a studio in Cambridgeshire. She studied Fine Art at Central St Martins, graduating in 2002. She has recently completed three years on the post-graduate Painting Correspondence Course with Turps Art School, London. Exhibitions include group shows at the University of Cambridge, Redchurch Street Gallery, London and the Ruskin Gallery, Anglia Ruskin University, and the Turps Correspond touring exhibition of contemporary painting in Halifax and Edinburgh.
