Jan Blemmings

Painter & Printmaker

12 – 24 March

Jan’s last show at Oxmarket was in 2015 and this new show reflects the intervening time spent in Pembrokeshire and the mouth of Langstone harbour . Working outdoors in the landscape Jan draws, paints and produces mono prints, a selection of which are on show. This outdoor exploration of place also informs the work she carries out in her studio in Southsea.

Jan considers the push and pull of the landscape as the prime motivator for her work. There is an energy in every landscape – a movement or potential/sense of movement, the juxtaposition of forms and tension. The ever-changing light activates or quietens the forms, releasing the energy or creating stillness, the work moving between representation and abstraction.
