"Intrepidity" Mini Water Colour Print - Jane Crisp
35 x 27.5cm Water Colour Flat Backed Mini Print
Now based in rural Waikato, Jane Crisp is originally from Auckland - and creates some of our most recognisable, well loved pieces featuring an array of Aotearoa’s native flora and fauna. “The interconnectivity of the natural world is what captivates me. I do not paint actual scenes or situations as a photographic camera would capture, rather, I paint an exploration of metaphysical realism from my perspective. I play with portraiture, placing New Zealand’s native birds upon pedestals; I admire their wisdom and integrity through the legends which have been told.” Working predominantly in acrylic on canvas, you can see the fine tuned details, and gentle brush strokes in all of Jane’s pieces - to a degree that they are oftentimes mistaken for photographs.
