Kiwi Stamp by Jane Crisp

"Beauty and realness of the natural world is what captivates me. I do not paint real scenes or situations as a photographic camera would capture, although I attempt to paint reality.

 
Much of my work is intuitive, opening with a vision often upon a waking moment, followed by a desperate scribble into a sketchbook. An imaginary stage is conceived, personifying a piece de resistance of nature, and with a little pain, much patience and a whole lot of joy my next painting is born. I liken my paintings to children, the bond formed during the process of creation is strong, and they  feel like loved ones when I send them out into the world.
 
Amplifying the compassion and warmth of these heart-filled creatures, who live in the moment, I verge into portraiture. Placing Tui and Piwakawaka upon pedestals, I admire their wisdom and integrity through stories and legends which have been told. I introduce objects of sentimental value to reflect their importance in an attempt to bring awareness of their fragile existence, an ongoing essence throughout my work.
