Jane McKay is an Australian artist whose art has been exhibited nationally and internationally, her work is included in a number of private and public collections in Australia and overseas. Jane McKay’s paintings are abstractions of the landscape. They are responses to the vast open spaces of the natural environment which reveal existential themes. The distant horizon line conveys the great expanse of the landscape and the expressive marks of McKay’s paintings are decorated with tiny, indispensable details of the natural world. The pigment appears in layers as though the colour is woven into a dense surface plane of abstraction. Skilfully executed in style, structure, and perspective the paintings strive for meaning beyond the boundaries of logic and explore the sublime.
