The February image in our 2023 calendar Páipéar is by Dublin based artist Jane Fogarty.
Jane Fogarty - D#1
The work is slow and contemplative in its creation due to the nature of the processes involved, with the colour slowly built up, layer upon layer. The colour palette for this work is derived from a photograph of Jane’s husband holding their newborn baby. In this work Jane is interested in questioning how colour can concentrate and preserve a moment.
Jane Fogarty graduated with a degree in Fine Art from the Dublin Institute of Technology (2010). She has been included in many national and international exhibitions including; Assemble, Atelier Maser, Futures, Series 3, Episode 3, the Royal Hibernian Academy Gallery, slow motion, MART Gallery and Dearly Beloved, VISUAL Carlow. Jane has several upcoming exhibitions in 2022 in Roscommon Arts Centre, The Orleans Gallery, Ottawa, Canada and the Royal Hibernian Academy.
Jane makes sculptures and paintings. The paintings are made using egg tempera, with this method, the paints are made from scratch on a daily basis. Then the colour is slowly built up, layer upon layer. Their palettes are derived from photographs, questioning how colour can concentrate and preserve a moment. The paintings evolve without a preconceived notion of their endpoint with compositions that fold inwards.
