Large and small scale gestural paintings, using intense colour, focusing on nature and women.
I am a painter. My works range from very large scale paintings in oil to smaller works on paper. My work is about ideas of transformation; how a garden or a landscape can become another world transformed through painting. These landscapes are often without a horizon, landscape interiors dense with vegetation, moving towards abstraction. I want the work to invite a feeling of otherworldliness, hinting at a presence; maybe figures will emerge as if part of the landscape. My paintings begin with an intense feeling that is created by nature and women that have meaning to me. Within my paintings I allude to a space but ultimately it is a space of the imagination, an entanglement of gestural marks and intense colour, layers of paint that dip into memory, myth and fairy-tale; a metaphor for psychology or emotion, relationships, and life itself. www.jaynesandysrenton.com
