Jane Smeets Exhibition at Pike & Joyce

Jan 30, 2019 3:48:00 PM  |  Featured

Nature, connection and love thread through Smeets’ artwork, drawing upon life experiences with underpinning themes of life and death. Living on the Fleurieu has directed the attention to nature’s life cycles, supporting the creative expression and giving a voice for living and loving in the present moment.

Jane Smeets, Arts Psychotherapist and educator in palliative services, has found these roles a major influence on her art practice.
Engaging with individuals at end of life, families and significant others in bereavement, generate rich and meaningful exchanges. During these challenging times, Art has given her a vehicle for balance and has enabled her to give permission for full expression.

Smeets’ technique, the qualities of mixed media and found objects reflect presenting themes of the natural world and life lived. Fluid and liberal application of watercolour, bold mark making supports the image to emerge.

“The symbol of the bird, often witnessed in my work, acts as the sacred messenger, linking the cycle of nature with human transitions and transformations. Art making looking through nature’s eyes provides breath”
