Jane Wright – 2021 UPwithARTist

Value: $600

Artist Bio:

I have painted, potted, quilted, knit and designed with wire, wax and glass. I love to create, I live to create. As an art educator, arts advocate and community activist for the arts, I have shared my enthusiasm for years. After the teaching was finished, the children raised and the B&B sold; I indulged my passion full time. As a watercolour artist captivated by the concepts of light, colour and transparency I have been seduced by the medium of fused glass which exploits the same qualities. The shifts of colour and shadow in the glass as the light changes gives a fascinating ephemeral quality to a material with a lifespan of thousands of years. I have participated in Studio Tours, taught and exhibited in Hudson, Quebec and recently moved to London. I have opened a studio offering classes and open studio time for glass fusing enthusiasts.

Artist Statement:

Light is essential, life-giving and elusive. Colour enriches our perception. The magical interplay of light, transparency and colour is what I seek through my art. This piece “A Path Submerged”, from my “Water” series, is inspired by my experience of recently living through a great flood where checking the water level became an anxious daily routine. I was struck by the similarities with our current ‘pandemic’ life; how an immutable force can so easily knock us from the path we thought we were on. How do we react to these challenges and disruptions to our perceived way of life? There are no answers, it is our choice entirely.
