Spotlight

Spotlight features our curator’s selection of a group of works by one artist. In our latest Spotlight, we are pleased to feature a series of 8 works on paper by artist Jane Irwin, completed in 2020.

Jane Irwin received her BFA in drawing and painting from Mount Allison University, New Brunswick, in 1977. Drawing and painting have always been integral parts of her artistic explorations. In these pieces, natural elements and found objects are the starting point from which the works evolve. The end results present recognizable imagery that straddles the boundary between representation and abstraction, inviting contemplation of the elusive forms. In 2019, returning to Newfoundland for the 8th time, she completed a month-long artist residency on Fogo Island. During that time, she drew and painted outside everyday. Those experiences reverberate in these works.
