Sept 2014 – New Paintings using Lime-wash.


In the following paintings I am exploring the use of lime-wash as a painting medium.

STATEMENT

Jan Williams
Jan Williams’ paintings explore memory and identity.
Painted by layering tinted lime-wash on board, marks are left by the rubbing away of the lime wash layers. Williams’ choice of lime-wash is significant, a memory from her childhood of the annual lime-washing of the cowsheds and buildings on the family farm.
This continuous paint / erase method creates surfaces that are alive to the play not only of chance, but that of editing and choice. The initially minimal paintings slowly reveal a complex tension between surface and depth that creates a space for haunting, half remembered transitional spaces.
