Jane Joseph: Prints, Drawings and Paintings 1984–2004

18 October – 19 November 2004

The places I choose to portray are ordinary: my studio, the surrounding London landscape, places outside the city which have become familiar to me. They are urban sites abundant with nature or they are rural or coastal, dominated by architecture: fixed spaces which are activated by the movement of people or traffic, the flow of water, a change in the weather, sometimes a piece of land seen from a moving ship. They are projected into focus by a particular light, a moment of flux I try to seize.

I have found in etching a medium whose infinite range of marks allows me to exploit on a small scale the dynamic power of black and white. I can resolve, as finished works, ideas which would otherwise remain in sketchbooks.
