Artist Statement: Much of Jane Sutton’s work comes from images and ideas from day-to-day life. For example, Jane created a series of works inspired by her frequent travels to Israel, to visit her family. This connection inspired the Jerusalem collection. She is drawn into the ancient feel of the city, its beautiful stone arches and stone laid roads. Their shapes inspire and challenge her to paint them with a playful eye. Most recently, Jane’s work has been inspired by outings with her grandchildren in New York. Her painting, A Visit to the Transit Museum, is a portrait of her granddaughter. Jane loves trying to capture her thoughts and curiosity as she explores the world.
