Jane Walker is interested in lines because of their clarity, and the different energy and tension in each line. She also embraces chance and spontaneous responses to each mark or angle to create a flow; an internal dialogue.
“I can see the same lines in this respect in all of the varying media that I use. There is a rugged character to all of my work: I am clumsy with paint. Accidents are sometimes useful so I leave them if they happen. Everything in a work has to flow so each angle or mark has to link or respond to everything else. I am a bit isolated as an artist and person so maybe I talk to myself in making my work.” — Jane Walker
