Jane Joseph is highly regarded for her drawings and prints of subjects in the urban landscape. Her spare, mainly black and white images record the world with a realist’s eye. Botanical studies cherish indigenous wild plants found around her West London studio and her observations, whether of more rural scenes, Waterloo Station and Sloane Square, are tempered by industry and the human flow.
Two concurrent exhibitions this September present recent large scale drawings and mixed media works at the Eagle Gallery, London and a survey exhibition of prints at New Hall, Cambridge, which features prints made in collaboration with contemporary writers, and a series of etchings commissioned by the Folio Society for their publications of Primo Levi’s If this is a Man and The Truce.
Jane Joseph’s work is held in many public collections including the British Museum, the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge; the Government Art Collection and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
An illustrated catalogue, with an introduction by Frances Spalding will be published for the exhibitions.
