Jane Atkinson attracted a large crowd to her private viewing last night kicking off her solo exhibition at Oil and Water Gallery Wandsworth. The gallery was looking fantastic thanks to some expert curating from Oil and Water boss, the wonderful Penny Macfarlane and Angie Jones (also wonderful, and also Jane’s daughter!). Jane’s variety of artwork is spectacular and as such the entire gallery, top and bottom has been dedicated accordingly for the next 2 weeks.
Jane is one of the grandes dames of British print-making: over the past three decades, Jane’s etchings and paintings have been exhibited in private and public collections internationally and in the UK, including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions. Jane uses colour, shape and form to express her strong emotions about life and nature. Her feelings about dreams and reality, her visual memories and her direct observation of people and places, are reflected in her often colourful and sometimes troubling work.
This is a rare opportunity to view the wide range of Jane’s portfolio – an opportunity not to be missed!
