After studying at Hornsey College of Art and later The Slade, where she subsequently taught, Jane Lewis has become a respected and much collected artist – her works have been exhibited by The National Portrait Gallery (London), The Institute of Contemporary Art (London), The Arnolfini Gallery (Bristol) and Whitechapel Art Gallery (London).
Jane was awarded The Slade Prize in 1977, worked as ‘Artist in Residence’ at The Kent Opera in 1985 who also commissioned further works in 1989 to commemorate their 20th anniversary. In 1993 Jane completed a years fellowship in drawing at Leeds Metropolitan University, an award funded by The Henry More Foundation. Following an invitation from The Slade, the artist held a solo exhibition during 1994 within the esteemed Strang Print Room (UCL). Jane’s work is regularly exhibited in London and we are proud to have produced a quintet of silkscreen prints with her.
Working from life often involves Jane in the construction of her own ‘props’, twisting origami birds or a festooned paper crown for example. With such creations she frequently combines an assemblage of eclectic clothing, musical instruments, masks or other chosen effects as devices to further the narrative within each given painting or pastel.
