As you were.. we are back in the erotic.. This painting's Turkish name - Baygin - means something like fainting.. and since I made it three or four years ago when I was living in Cyprus and learning Turkish that is no doubt where the Turkish concept comes from. (A2, mixed media on paper 2003) As an antidote to the roses of yesterday, and while my next roses paintng is giving me hell, I offer this strange work which is probably a lovemaking scene. You may well wonder why I don't know for sure but then I was only the person painting it through whom it flowed. As with many works from that period I am also not too sure how I made it (charcoal, white acrylic, ink...) but the feeling was right and a womanly passion comes over, I hope. a bientot Jane
An ex BBC TV and radio classical music producer I retrained in fine arts in Brussels after marrying a diplomat and going to live in different countries abroad. I have two school age children and a much loved second home in France. My family and friends are very spread out so the internet is very important. Creative life is often compromised but absolutely vital. A reluctant gypsy I am alarmed to find artistic concepts are not as portable as I once thought. The universality of the human figure (my subject) is not helpful enough in the constant conflict of who I am and where I am.
