Contemporary British artist Jane Harris is known for using the ellipse as a recurring motif in her paintings and works on paper. She is particularly interested in the ever-changing relationships between surface, light, form and space and through her meticulous process, she create intense and seductive works that have been termed poetically as “Rococo Minimalism.”
She has been exhibiting her work for more than 20 years and she has held solo shows at Galerie d’Ecole des Beaux Arts in France, Angel Row Gallery in Nottingham, the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in Connecticut and Southampton City Art Gallery. She has been the recipient of a number of awards including the Centre Nationale des Arts Plastique de France International Research Award (2010), Rootstein Hopkins Major Sabbatical Award (2004) and the Arts Foundation Painting Fellowship (1995). In the same year she was a prizewinner at the John Moores Painting Exhibition.
In 2010 she was shortlisted for the prestigious Wollaston Prize at the Summer Exhibition and in 2011-2012 her work was included in the international exhibition The Indiscipline of Painting, held at Tate St Ives and the Mead Gallery, University of Warwick. She has also undertaken residencies at the Josef and Anni Alberts Foundation in Connecticut and at Clermont-Ferrand in France.
