Jane Jenevieve Olson is an emerging abstract artist living and working in Sydney.
Jane has always had a passion for creating, whether through painting or music, and this passion continues to grow and evolve. Growing up in the inner city of Sydney, creating art became a way to escape the noise, find stillness and the space for her inner world to surface. Although her painting started as a personal cathartic outlet, it soon became apparent that her art resonates with people and connects with them in a meaningful way.Her painting is deeply inspired by her personal experience and her life experiences living in Australia and travelling the world. This is reflected in the way she transforms the paint on canvas creating something abstract and unique, without resistance to her feeling as she allows the rich and diverse world of colour and texture to navigate the process - an expression of her inner world.
Jane's process of painting is all about flow and texture, it is spontaneous but deeply connected to the moment. Typically on canvas, she uses mediums, techniques, and tools that allow her full expression and freedom to create, manipulate, obliterate, and distort until reaching the point of equanimity. The process is fleeting and volatile - a moment in time that will either be lost or captured forever on canvas. Her latest series of work has been inspired by travels through Japan, drawing influences from the beauty and movement of the natural and urban environments.
