MY ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Extract of painting by Jayne Pope from her Artist Statement

My work is all about colour. It’s about mark making and placing colours so they give space and movement to the composition.

Working in this method of colour field painting, I look at the great exponents such as Morris Louise, Helen Frankenthaler, Stanley Whitney, Sam Gilliam, Mark Rothko and Richard Smith.

As there are no figurative points of references , working purely with colour feels like there are no bounderies which makes that all the more exciting.
