Jane Wheeler
Born 1950 in Norwich UK | Lives and works in Fife, Scotland

Jane Wheeler creates paintings that emphasise the materiality of paint to express emotions in response to being in a location. For this latest series of works, Wheeler creates abstract paintings that contemplate the landscape of Assynt in the far North West of the Scottish Highlands, the loss of Gaelic language place names during recent times, and the geology and human history of the parish. Wheeler is, “trying to dig down into painting about place, to invent a way of recalling on canvas with paint.”
