ARTIST IN FOCUS FOR WEEK #2 @MANYUNG GALLERY
Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one. ~Stella Adler
Jane Mogensen was born in Gippsland, Australia in 1967. Upon completing Fine Arts in Year 12 she studied Design at RMIT, Melbourne. Following a professional career in Fashion Design, Jane chose to pursue her love of painting under the guidance of renowned contemporary artist Terrence J. Hadler. Previously Jane was awarded Best in Show judged by James Makin of James Makin Gallery and more recently was a finalist in the St Michaels Exhibition and Archangel Prize and Casella Art Prize for Contemporary Landscape.
Through her skilful use of palette knife and brushwork Jane scrapes and layers the paintings, to achieve the same understated transcendence in all of her work.
Where does your inspiration come from? I am greatly influenced by my surroundings having lived on the Mornington Peninsula for the past 10 years.
How would you explain your paintings? Subtle and lush with colour that engages the imagination and conveys a weight of emotional connection to atmospheres and places.
Come join us this SUNDAY 19th October as we continue to celebrate the place of ART within the HOME. I will be there between 1-3pm and ready to offer you a cool drink. Have a fabulous week! Bronnie
