Station of the Skirt is a body of new work by British artist Jane Andrews. In this series of paintings, executed during a 2 year period following her husbandâ€™s diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease, she consistently uses the skirt as her starting point.
The results while often dark are always quirky and engaging - using humour to subvert, and make comment on the social, cultural and domestic restrictions the Skirt is used to signify.
Jane Andrews has her own distinctive style. She paints with a sensitivity and vigour that immediately captivates her audience. Her compositions positively hum with a spirited personality and, exceptionally among her peers, she is able to create paintings that take on a distinct and disturbing life all of their own.
