“The paintings simultaneously point to the history of the medium while maintaining a firm conversation in the now. My aim is to create a place of space and light to inspire a shift in perception that is at once familiar and unfamiliar. Although the work depicts abstracted forms and colors, it is based in the landscape tradition, exploring the boundary between the conscious and the subconscious, deriving inspiration from both the natural environment and supernatural forces.” - Jane Swavely
