Jane Rushton 1955 Jane Rushton explores the disciplines of drawing and painting as a way of investigating the world around her. Themes of fragility, transience and endurance provide a focus, with interplay between micro and macro producing elusive and contemplative imagery that leaves room for interpretation. More recently, though not exclusively, the geographical focus has been on remote Northern areas including the Arctic, where she have undertaken extended field trips, sometimes with scientists. The Arctic environment is emblematic in terms of current concerns with climate change, and it provides the focus of much scientific work that tries to understand the processes at play, and their significance. The ultimate aim is making visually poetic work that provokes a different type of engagement: of seeing, valuing, knowing and understanding.
