Jane Shriffer | NZ Abstract Artist

Jane Shriffer is an abstract artist living and working in Wanaka, who graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Dunedin School of Art in 2006.

Shriffer paints intrinsically; a flowing of intuition, response and presence culminating into a canvas of layers of colour and texture with the use of her singular palette knife clearly visible. Each movement is considered, resulting in a rhythmic surface alive with movement and expressed in lush, vibrant colour. 

Shriffer will say she can’t explain how her paintings evolve, they simply are, arising from her own existentialism. Shriffer can tell you, however, what was relevant in her mind at the time and invites the viewer to query this. Each artwork has a title relevant to the moment, a juncture in time anchoring each piece in a visual and emotional unfolding. These paintings are a visual diary recorded in an abstract yet perceptible language, chock-full with emotive colour. 

Naturally down-to-earth, Shriffer doesn’t care for embellishments in these expressions of her life. She is a mother and an artist, there’s nothing highbrow about this lifestyle. In doing so she illustrates the often mundane and ridiculousness of simply being alive and with the use of deliciously vivid colour she makes the world a delightful place.
