Artist's Statement:

Alive with a dynamic expressive energy the landscapes of Jeannette Hayes resonate with a liberated optimistic creativity.
In works that are constructed out of lines and blocks of evocative colour, abstract activity is finely balanced with landscape reference. A love of the exquisiteness and drama of the natural world conveys itself in the drawn marks, gestures and accents of colour. Colour plays a central role - titles often contain a colour: ‘Spring Green’, ‘Orange Mousa’, or ‘Blue Snowing’ - setting an ambient mood to the recording of her experience of a place. This gives the works a poetic quality that is in keeping with the way they were conceived.
