Name: Jane McCance

Medium:Painting

Jane McCance was born in Glasgow in 1974 and graduated in 2000 from Glasgow School of Art with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art.

Of Scottish and Danish parentage, Jane’s work is influenced by the landscape of both Scotland and Scandinavia, but is also concerned with themes of memory, loss and renewal; themes which are apparent not only in her landscape and semi-abstract painting practice, but also in her quiet and reflective still life pieces. Rarely working in pure abstract, she chooses instead to base her image-making around form and subject – sometimes loosely (as in her landscape and semi-abstract work), and other times more firmly rooted in the representational (as in her still lifes).

Jane McCance’s semi-abstract work often uses paint as a barrier to viewing the painting; most often in block or square forms of colour and shade on the canvas, in order to direct the eye away from the surface of the piece and towards a vista of atmosphere and meaning.

The still life paintings are a reflection on memory, nostalgia, and the subtle movement of nature and the human spirit towards continued growth.

Jane lives on Scotland’s west coast, where she paints from her home studio seven days a week. She shows work in both Scotland and England.
