Jane Harris

Jane Harris’ oil paintings on canvas (in two colours) form geometric ellipses that can be seen as both a flat shape with two focal points or as a circle from an angle. As the viewer changes positions and as the light changes from natural to artificial light, her paintings move through a series of optical transformations. One can easily compare her brushwork to the computer pixel as a unit of colour, form or image where the resolution of the pixels determines the degree of sharpness and clarity of an image.
