Industrial paintings, Jane Thorniley-Walker


Exhibitions and Workshops




Jane’s subtly observed depictions of industrial landscapes are accurate and precise, but go beyond the realism of photography by unifying and lifting the subject matter into a different sphere of perception.

They aim to provide a snapshot in time: the fascination is the transitory and complex nature of these construction scenes and the monumental magnificence of the engineering. Jane sets out to breathe life into the landscapes that others might dismiss, celebrating the action and vitality that touches and transforms the sites forever.

It heightens our sense of well-being by enlarging the range of our physical perceptions. It gives us magical spectacles’ (Kenneth Clark on van Eyck)
