Jane Harris

About The Artist

Jane Harris was born in Dorset in 1956. She now lives and works between Bromley in Kent and the South West of France. Harris Studied a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Brighton Polytechnic in 1979, followed by Higher Diploma Fine Art, Slade School of Art in 1981 and an MA Fine Art at Goldsmiths College in 1991. She is presently a Visiting Professor at the Royal Academy Schools.

Drawing is fundamental to Jane Harris' practice, which she employs in two distinct ways, as a preparatory starting point for paintings and as drawings that exist in their own right. Harris approaches drawing in a calculated, exact and rigorous way - 'Each drawing adheres to certain fixed rules with the consistent use of watercolour, B pencils and architectural templates.' Jane Harris

However Harris allows for visual rhythm and sensual playfulness to interplay in her detailed adjustments and repositioning. They initially appear as strong, immutable images but on further appreciation of the soft velvety subtleties of pencil their illusory and optical quality is illuminated and calls on the imagination to make them come alive.
