ceridwen jane gray
Whilst recognising that artifice is a survival tool and that it is also one of power, Jane try to see past the
facades of myself, of others and her surroundings to find the essence – delving into chaos –to
glimpse the true nature of the subject. In this way the essence is perceived.
She seeks to express this perception through the style of painting that she calls Organic Expressionism where her paintings evolve rather than are preconceived.
The paintings are built up through many layers of different materials and glazes in order to express the
depth and complexity that constitutes our journey through life.
All are abstractions to a greater or lesser degree.
Ceridwen is influenced by everything under the
sun, but particularly the work of Kandinsky, Rauschenburg, Frankenthaler, Rothko, Abstract
Expressionism, Symbolism and the Bauhaus.
