Jane Blackman is a ceramicist who combines form and painting to convey personal memories of specific landscapes. These are evoked with the use of vigorous marks and colour and paradoxically occupy the interior of the vessel.
She is interested in the influence that frames and boundaries have on our ways of seeing. The matt, white exterior surface provides a calm framework within which the expressive landscapes come alive.
This work was purchased for the University art collection in 2004 by the Friends of the Mead Gallery.
