Janet Samson

The tonal arrangement of the work is a primary concern; this makes abstract forms within the figurative painting. Similarities in the structure of shapes can sometimes create duality and ambiguous meaning.

Portraiture from life is a relatively small but important part of my output.

Ongoing themes are 'journeys', 'interiors', 'cloth & clothes', 'social situations;.

Everything I produce is informed by direct observation using sketchbooks but adapted by memory and imagination.

I paint in oils on canvas, gouache on paper, encaustic on gesso ground and produce small editions of wood cuts.
