Fine artist Jane Webster exhibits at Sarah’s Jazz Club from October 28th to November 10th, inspired by the jazzy ambiance and good energy in the space.
“Once a painting is completed, what happens to it? Under the bed, behind the wardrobe? No! I must liberate it, send it on its journey. As far as I am concerned it does not exist as a work of art until it is out there – for people to look at, to love or loathe it, to discuss it, think about it, maybe even buy it! And the best place for this to happen? Well, maybe a jazz club,” says Jane.
The exhibition can be viewed Wednesdays – Saturdays from 11am to 11:30PM. During live jazz events, entrance is subject to the ticket price.
Jane works from her studio in Limassol and has painted for over 50 years. She cannot remember ever wanting to do anything else. She has a degree in Fine Art and postgraduate Art Teacher Certificate, as well as being qualified in Ceramics and Stained Glass. Jane exhibits in galleries in the UK and Cyprus, but often wonders why she imprisons her work in those places.
“As a life- long fan of modern jazz, Sarah’s is the perfect venue to display my work – I hope my paintings will be an unexpected treat for people who come to meet friends and listen to music,” says Jane.
There are two main themes in her work; Still Life and Abstracts. Recently, Jane has started painting on found pieces of wood and is fascinated by the way they look like fragments of ancient paintings rediscovered.
“I love the beauty of ordinary everyday stuff – and I like to make it more beautiful,” she says.
“My work is not only about colour, composition and subject matter, it’s also about ideas and thought, emotion and memory – a fusion of the world I see and the turmoil of what is inside of me,” says Jane.
