Jane Morrow. Sea Fever-The Call Of The Sea. September 2019
The ever changing nature of the sea always inspires me to paint not only what I see but what I feel when I am there. This collection of work pays homage to the poem “Sea Fever” by John Masefield (1902) that continues to move me and to the sea itself for always being there when I need it.
Painted in oils, each one is inspired by a line or a phrase from Sea Fever.
Jane Morrow, Hilbre Perspective. September 2018
Staacks are very pleased to welcome back Jane Morrow for what will surely prove to be another great show.
Influenced by her walks to Hilbre Island, Jane has developed a body of work that captures the shifting landscape, colour and light that truly reflects the environment around this familiar landmark. Jane explains further, "As a contemporary impressionist painter I am always concerned with capturing the light and essence of the landscape through which the audience can find a sense of place."
2017. Between Tides
This exhibition of work has been inspired by sketches and photographs collected throughout the year. Living by the sea Jane observes how with every changing tide the scene differs moment by moment. In this collection she captures some of those moments. From daybreak to sunset the light and colours of the coastal landscape are constant sources of inspiration.
As Jane puts it, “Some of my favourite times are the grey rainy or wintry days that create emotive scenes of heavy clouds and dark seas”.
