Jane G. Smith
Conceptual art. Conceptual artist who works within the mediums of installation, painting, photography, woven images and ceramics (mixed media).
Jane is a conceptual artist from the Isle of Lewis who works within the mediums of installation, painting, photography, woven images and ceramics. She is interested in combining aspects of place and identity within her work and likes to draw parallels between her own life and the costal environment that surrounds her.
The concepts of memories, impermanence, resilience and connections are of particular interest, all of which are well suited to the rugged rocks, powerful seas and plant life of the Outer Hebrides. Jane loves trying to bring aspects of the local environment into her art, whether it is though the visual content, by positioning it and documenting it within the location that inspired it or by incorporating aspects of the site itself within the piece.
