Biography

Visiting and responding to Baroque and Renaissance houses and formal gardens across Europe for the past twenty years, has amassed a wealth of recollections and visual imagery which now leeches into my everyday life. These works are part of a series entitled Locating the Domain which is an amalgam of imagined Baroque spaces: a claustrophobic fictitious environment, which has evolved through obsessive childhood recollections of luxurious and enigmatic spaces.

My relentless pursuit to remember those captivating spaces, drives me to construct & navigate a new Domain which is unfolding as a continuous labyrinth of paintings, prints and drawings, each embodying elements of specific places and each connected. A Domain of my own making.

Jane Frederick currently co-ordinates The Drawing School at The Minories Gallery in Colchester and works closely with the Arts Education Outreach Team at The University of Essex, supporting teachers at every level to raise the profile of inclusive arts education and support them through practical C.P.D. workshops.
