Jane Theodore lives and paints in Toronto, Canada. Her twenty-year fine arts background includes exhibited work in galleries, representation by international art distributors Progressive Fine Art, and Chicago Center for the Print, and publication by fine art publishers Verkerke Reprodukties N. V., of Holland. Jane’s work is included in the Collections Canada website, Women Artists in Canada, and represented in numerous collections throughout North America.
Jane’s paintings are process-driven, spontaneous explorations of gesture, form and colour. Compositions are revealed as layers of paint are added and subtracted, forms appear and disappear, and the paint is scratched or scraped, revealing what lies beneath. Working on both paper and canvas, the paintings’ foundation is high-intensity colour, and invites an intuitive and visceral reaction.
