Gestures, The land speaks
A vibrant semi-abstract painting show from award winning artist Jana Wood.
JANA WOOD’s paintings sit within a liminal space between abstraction and representation. The work is the result of a slow kind of looking and feeling, hearing, listening and being in the wild environment that surrounds her studio at Port Waikato. Wood’s imagery and framing devices work metaphorically to express environmental concerns, the colonial grid, and re-wilding of spaces.
