"City Heights" is a limited edition series of artwork inspired by London skylines, created by our new partner artist Janet Gammans.
"London is my favourite capital city where I worked as a freelance Graphic Designer before becoming a full-time artist. I visit the capital frequently and it has been of great inspiration for the expressionist, contemporary collection ‘City Heights’. The paintings evolved from my deeply emotive experiences of this eclectic and evocative city and describe my emotional response at the time, rather than an accurate depiction. A diverse amalgamation of buildings old and new, sound, vibrancy and culture come together in these exciting and energetic watercolour abstracts."
Medium: Limited to an edition run of 99, each image is printed using a 12 colour giclée fine art printing process onto a luxurious 410gsm Hahnemühle Monet cotton canvas material. The printed canvas is then carefully hand stretched over a chunky 38mm deep stretcher bar frame milled from the finest quality kiln dried knotless pine sourced from sustainable European forests. It is then finished with a stylish wooden float frame to create a special work of art - choose either a white or black float frame.
Artist Info: Janet began her career working in Advertising and Design in London after leaving college. Janet now works from her studio in South Cambridgeshire as a freelance artist, creating semi-abstract, impressionistic and fine art. Her original paintings are sold from galleries throughout the South of England and internationally via the web. She has become a much recognised artist for her subject matter and her unique creative style of work.
"I have come to realise that it's not what you paint that is important, but how you paint it. So in my interpretation of painting a subject, I try to maintain the essence of what first inspired me to paint it. For me, what is fundamental in paintings are light, subtlety of colour, harmony, depth and drama, while still staying true to the subject. In my finished work, I hope that I have conveyed to the viewer a sense of mood which was present at the time of painting it".
