Jane Muir specialises in idiosyncratic figures representing a witty and uncluttered observation of the world. Figures that stand alone or are placed in an architectural landscape are hand modelled, allowing her freedom to sketch with the clay and develop ideas during the making process.
Jane’s figures are not about specific individuals but are a personification of the stereotype or the archetypal character. It is their anonymity that allows us to identify for ourselves familiar individuals.
Subtle colour and seductive surface textures are key elements in her work, immensely appealing but never sentimental. Her work has been exhibited widely throughout the UK, Europe, America and Japan.
