    Biography

    Jane Oldfield is developing work concerning flying. This provides a focus which connects the variety of her visual work - mainly painting on a variety of surfaces, but also 3D pieces and performance. Learning gliding at the Booker Gliding Club has a very important part in this.

    The main series I am working on now suggests the future evolution of people towards flying people - spiritually as well as physically. I prefer to imagine people changing toward the shapes of gliders rather than developing birds’ (or angels’) wings. Matisse showed me a way to play with cutouts and Aldeburgh beach provided the wind to fly them from the Lookout.

    Flight requires more movement than mobiles so I have returned to painting for my latest work.
