Jane Aliendi lives in Tathra on the Far South Coast of NSW.
She studied Philosophy and History and worked as an English teacher but has recently began pursing a career as a full time artist.
This body of work shows her response to the shapes and colours of objects set against patterned fabric and the crypsis that results from exploring undefined spaces.
Influenced by early modernists like Cossington Smith, Wakeling, de Maistre and Seurat she explores how the mark made by a brush and oil paint can create from and represent light. She aims to capture how colour can create an image that is both vibrant and static and plays with ideas of what is obvious and hidden in our everyday lives.
