Jane Ward

Jane Ward’s works are concerned with travel, memory and constructed realities. These are created from a series of photographs the artist takes on her art travels, from cityscapes to mountainous scenes and everything in-between. In her studio Ward breaks these down digitally, creating compositions then prints onto a variety of surfaces, from canvas to aluminium, bringing clarity or reflection as the artist requires. Often she works on the print to break down the surface by dissolving the printer ink or adding elements such as pigment or gold leaf, highlighting and excavating the surface. These works are a celebration of life, progress and nature. Jane studied printmaking at the Royal College of Art, winning the Conrad Foundation Award for print after graduating. Ward shows regularly at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, and has shown at numerous locations around the UK and Europe.
