I'm sharing a  few photos from the collective exhibition "Benedetti Artisti" of my work inspired by the  environment  of the abandoned and dismissed  mill where the exhibition was held . The proposal of  my works explores and interprets the nature of the place, proposing the transformation of the natural element: the flour. 

You can see more photos of the  exhibition on my facebook page :   https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jane-Minter-Artist/339126159492769

Jane Minter

è una pittrice inglese, in mostra propone rappresentazioni a base di impasto di farina e acquerello - tecnica amata da Turner -  nella quali si leggono le fluorescenze naturali ma anche immagini di paesaggi e trasparenze di altre nature che pure appartengono al grande masterplan di nascita, morte, rinascita e trasformazione dove anche la rosa, i frutti, i monumenti si trasformano dando vita a qualcosa di nuovo.
Salvatore Fazia




Jane Minter

is an English painter, who proposes in the exhibition  works  with a base of "impasto" -  flour and watercolour - a technique used by Turner - in which you read the natural fluorescence but also images of landscapes and transparencies of other natures which belong to the great masterplan of birth, death , rebirth and transformation where also the rose, the fruits, the monuments are transformed giving birth to something new.

"notzie" 
iPad art 
digital art image
photo manupulation  of watercolour study "notizie"- "news"

Based on "Creativity Workshop" : Beyond the Ordinary by artist Nicolas Simmons
 I've started to use the iPad  to manipulate photos of my watercolours . With "news"/ "notzie" I used  iPad's basic iPhoto App  to edit and create the digital image above.The next step will be to use this digital image and others to explore and generate ideas for new paintings .There is definately  a  lot of scope with this approach and a lot to learn. It's a brilliant design tool.

watercolour wash 
printing roller + PC gloss printing paper 


.....another small wash painted on plastic coated inkjet paper . The paint was applied with a brush and a printing roller .From a distance the pattern created reminds me of a night time view of a glass façade . The plastic  coated  surface of the printing paper is fascinating to work on .It appears to be very similar to working on Yupo and other synthetic papers - here's a link about synthetic paper on handprint.com   http://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/paper4.html 
It would be interesting to develop this wash  by wiping/lifting off areas creating hard edges  and adding additional layers .

"mark making" .....  I recently created  50 small watercolour washes rapidly  in one session experimenting with  a printing roller /brush and watercolour on off cuts of gloss printing paper  ...the results are very mixed and interesting . I'll post a sample of some of the washes which hopefully will give you an insight into the process .
