Artist Bio - Jane Dodge
An intense passion for the human form has driven my artistic practice. From early childhood, sculpting bodies in the sand, interpreting the human form through charcoal and pencil life drawing to the study of Fashion Design at RMIT. My love for the human body in its raw form has underpinned my creative pursuit.
Of recent times more canvas works in both oil and acrylics have been dominating my material use. Flowers and birds are to making their ways onto my canvases perching on the shoulders of or surrounding my portraits.
Life around me first and formost provides the greatest influence. From images that my mind captures in peoples and natures everyday movements. Many fellow artists and designers open the mind in awe. Dali, Brett Whitley, Picasso, Esther Erlich, Yohji Yammamoto, Comme Des Garcon. The list is endless. Teachers and people in life contribute in the most invaluable way.
