About the artist
Contemporary expressionistic painting
Jayne Sandys-Renton is a painter focusing on nature and women. Her dense, interior landscapes invite the viewer to experience colour and gesture in these expressive, bold works that dip into fairy tale, myth, and transformation. Women that enter her work are implicitly present even if not always literally apparent, inviting a feeling of other worldliness. Colour and the physicality of the paint sweeping across the canvas in an entanglement of marks are paramount in these strong, vibrant paintings. Living in the Sussex landscape has been an ongoing inspiration, combined with Rubens figures, Jan Van Huysum flowers, women that inspire and contemporary painters.
Jayne works large scale in oil and has smaller works on paper and board.
Jayne has works in collections across Britain, in Rhode Island (Boston, USA), Portugal and Germany, and has exhibited regularly in London and the South of England. Most recently exhibiting with Glyndebourne in the Fair Ground exhibition.
Born in London, Jayne began painting from a young age before moving to Sussex. She has an MA with Distinction awarded by the University of Sussex at West Dean College (2008).
