a collection of paintings and drawings by Jan Rae
about the Ballina/Byron coast
Sometimes the memory of something is more poignant and focused than its reality and it is this emotional response to landscape that interests me. My artwork is an enquiry into the constantly evolving meeting place between earth and water.
The headland drawings are often made on site; with the sun, wind and sea spray adding another dimension. The oil paintings are about mapping an observed, remembered and imagined coastline where the margin between earth and water is lost and refound. They also refer to a lifetime of experiencing the sublime beauty and tidal fluctuations of my home environment at Belongil Beach
