Janis Glover


Janis P Glover

BA Fine Art Painting (Birmingham Art College)

Janis works in oils and a variety of mixed media as a direct response to the landscape of moors, beach and figure. Dartmoor and Exmoor are both places she returns to, time after time whatever the season. 

Over the centuries the moors have been marked with an intricate pattern of pathways, fields and walls. Her work explores the shifting character of the moors as wild, primordial places, at times overwhelming the overlay of humanity.

Drawing and painting the nude is a traditional art discipline, which informs all her work. Just as there are marks made by people in the landscape, there are landscape qualities in the figure.

Her paintings are an emotional response to a particular pattern or depth of colour in the landscape focusing on the atmospheric quality of light found in North Devon.
