Janice Thurston

I am a painter and printmaker. I work with mostly oil paints, fine art printmaking and use photography to record the constant changes taking place in the landscape. 
My work is an emotional and personal response to landscape.  It focuses on the countryside of the South Downs, Sussex - an area of ancient histories, wildness and human traces fashioned by agriculture.  I am interested in the sublime vastness of big spaces; the transformations that are relentlessly taking place as the seasons evolve and the colours alter.  The shifting light and its effect on the shape and form of the contours of the land produce semi-abstract patterns in the landscape, and these also hold a fascination.
I also have work on show at the Chalk Gallery Lewes
