 Jane organised and created two back to back shows in Queenstown and Wanaka. This was an event designed for Land Search and Rescue  in which to pay gratitude to the volunteers and their partners and a tribute  to the lives lost. Jane donated  $2550 to LandSAR. 

  

"Excellent and breath-taking paintings. Composition's are soft, whilst light captured is strong and powerful. Jane's paintings are definitely Museum pieces.  Stimulating works that provoke contemplation.” 

Peter Gagliardi, Curator, Biennale of Chianciano, Italy

BEEFORE THE END, FOR THE 2019 LONDON BIENNALE

The top is full of life. Bees, a beehive, cherry blossom, gold droplets of pollen and water. In the centre, a human figure starts to weaken. As our eyes move down, life is  deteriorating fast. Parts of the paint are even flaking off, revealing the underneath surface and  emphasizing that is everything is falling apart.  The figures backside holds a secret message, "If we cant be arsed making massive change, we will go down". The painting is crying because it is dying. 

The bees are falling to their death, the leaves have dried, as too are the flower petals. All that is left is a pile of dead, decaying bees. Once the painting is hung on the white wall at Chelsea Old Town Hall on Londons Kings Road, underneath the painting you will see a pile of real bees that  died by drowning in Lake Wanaka.

The London Biennale will take place between May 22 and 26 this year.
