Jane Walker ‘City Lines’ Exhibition at Garbos

Jane Walker 'City With Rivers'

Fareham’s Sticks Gallery will be exhibiting Jane Walker’s solo show: City Lines at the Garbos Gallery Wall from now until the 5th September. The exhibition space within the salon has been home to many exhibitions in recent years, previously with Just Add Art and Island Art and now with Sticks Gallery curating the space. Jane Walker is an artist hailing from Sheffield whose beautifully intricate cityscapes reduce painting to a series of lines. Through this she explores ideas of tension, space and the human dimension:

“Space in painting and its relationship to a human ‘dimension’ has always been an ongoing concern. the white lines in my work articulate space. looking back at my work today’s sense of space in painting is an unimaginable development. I have explored this by thinking of it as a move backwards to a fragmented medieval space. The lines are brittle, my cities are under pressure. The calligraphic marks have come from drawing dense urban environments, the marks I use are a sort of shorthand for cities.”

Jane’s detailed art works include stitching and threads intricately worked into her pieces.  This style was born out of a residency she undertook to explore tension in lines and threads and how this relates to tension in urban surroundings. The exhibition is within Garbos on Albert Road and open to all and continues until 5th September, the pieces can be purchased via Sticks Gallery website:
