Birds in the Blue by Janet Gough


Janet Gough: “Sometimes my paintings are collages of moments where I play with real representative collage. I preserve a memory (watercolour on tissue paper) responding with this media to the fragile nature of the subject, which I seal with layers of varnish into a still life.

If I’m listening to music the lyrics sometimes link subconsciously into pieces of my work. Eventually they become entangled in the paint on the canvas.

I try to find beauty in the small everyday moments of life, and share it through my paintings. On the days that I get lost, I go back to Matisse, Picasso. I also read Hockney, whose personal perspective lifts my spirits and always makes me seek to find ‘pink through blue’.”
