Jayne Ross

My work is quite diverse and generally leans towards abstraction.

Often inspiration is drawn from things that evoke a powerful visceral response – the ground beneath our feet and the sea.

I like to experiment with style, media, colour and scale, and sometimes even let the paint dictate the subject matter. This often results in some surprises. Digital media is also something I enjoy, and I’m hoping to have prints of some of my digital works available for my open studio weekends.

I have been painting, drawing and creating art ever since I can remember – I was the child who wanted sable brushes and turpentine for Xmas, when all my friends asked for a Cindy Horse! I grew up in North Yorkshire, and attended Harrogate College Of Arts, during which time I worked in theatre as a scene-painter, before starting a career as a stage manager. I have been working in live events production since 1993.




My work is primarily but not exclusively concerned with what lies beneath us – the subterranean layers of every moment in time, now obscured in abstract strata and passages of sea which hold mystery, comfort, primal power, sustenance, energy, dreadfulness, awe, the fantastic, the macabre. Liminality, where the passage of time perpetually forms everything that ever existed into the intermingling of rock, water, precious minerals, gases, and, inevitably, where all life ends up. I seek to explore concepts of underground caverns and waterfalls, oceans, great cathedrals of secrecy, stable, fragmented and volatile abstractions formed by the incessant pressure of time. This is where history dwells, in a world we cannot see or touch, but we know exists beneath our feet.
