'I view my linocut work as experimentation with line. I like my lines to be playful. Colour comes later.
I hope my work stimulates the tastebuds of the eye.
I like working within the square. It feels like having fun in a box. Sometimes it is more like struggling in a box. I aim for simplicity. When I am lucky it comes out fully formed. It is always best to take myself by surprise.'JANE BRISTOWE, exhibitor at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2010 and short-listed for Wildlife Artist of the Year 2008, combines her clear and distinct use of line with a passion for colour.
Her appealing style has established Bristowe as a leading exponent of animal images in the UK. Her innovative linocuts - display her inventive artistic imagination in capturing the simple appearances and character of a stunning array of animals - and have placed Bristowe among the best of this genre currently working today.
Bristowe's sassy linocut style makes her work immediately recognisable. Her bold single colour work creates an instant rapport with her subject matter and conveys not only the likeness of each character Bristowe has drawn but it's individual personality as well.
Jane Bristowe's 'Meerkats' linocut was exhibited in the 2010 Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and published as a card by Canns Down Press for the Royal Academy.
