Victa’s Paddock

Jane Canfield, well known Blue Mountains artist exhibits at Rex-Livingston Art + Objects in Katoomba during September.

Since meeting Jane Canfield in November 2015 and discussing abstract painting, Canfield has embarked on a journey of reduction, simplification and abstraction in her more recent works. Many of her earlier paintings and related imagery have often given a clue as to ‘where her works seem to want to go’.

The new works, by example Victa’s Paddock, 2016, oil on board, 44 x 44cm, offers the viewer a paired down vision from a site-specific location that has caught the artist’s eye. Named after an old horse, (Victa), the painting is muted in palette and almost minimal in composition. For me, this work is a good example of the new direction in her oeuvre. 

The exhibition, featuring around 23 artworks, is a testimony to her enduring en plein air love affair. Artists that work on site often produce works with a greater feeling or sensibility and perhaps a more visibly honest aesthetic. The new body of work is in on view from the 8th to the 30th September at Rex-Livingston Art + Objects, 182-184 Katoomba St, Katoomba NSW 2780.

Canfield has been a finalist and winner of numerous art prizes, both here in the Blue Mountains and further afield to Sydney and regional NSW, including the Kedumba Drawing Award and the NSW Parliament Plein Air Art Prize - her most recent being a finalist in The Calleen Art Award, 2016, Cowra Regional Gallery.
