Artworks: Jane Blackmore

Biography

As a practicing artist with over 20 years experience, Jane’s work is primarily inspired by the stunning and singular vistas of the Wellington hills and harbour. Characterised by emotional intensity, her paintings announce themselves with a calm assuredness – the hallmark of an established artist who continues to grow and challenge her own artistic vision. Blackmore’s landscapes are unashamedly spiritual. When we look at her landscapes and seascapes, we sense that we ourselves have inhabited these places, perhaps as children, perhaps in memory, or perhaps in a dream.

Jane’s recent work continues her exploration of colour, form, and the visceral qualities of paint.  

"For over 20 years I have found passion for my artwork in nature. The paintings, whether they are the flowers, abstractions or landscapes are predominantly about stopping and just being in the moment. I have a love for oil paint and the way it moves and glows, it is a constant fascination to me. It is this quality that pushes me to further explore colour, form and movement in all my art. 

I want to capture a timeless quality in my work, something that becomes a meaningful part of your life. You will observe and engage differently every time you view it.
