As mentioned previously, Jordans Solicitors will once again be taking part in the Wakefield Artwalk on 28th March 2018. We will be opening our doors between 5pm and 8pm to showcase work by local artist Jane Walker www.jane-walker.co.uk and there will be poetry from the Black Horse poets from 7pm.
Jane Walker studied at Sheffield Hallam University (1984-87) and the Royal Academy Schools (1987-90). She received highly commended awards in Doncaster Open Exhibition 2017 and Peterborough Open 2016.
Jane likes to make 2-dimensional work with lines. The images Jane makes are of cities, Jane draws and re-draws cities. Jane is interested in seeing the patterns humans make on the planet from different distances. Jane likes to change the scale of buildings.
Jane is interested in how far these patterns reach in time and space. Do human structures have any effect on nature, on animals, the weather and climate. Does the human pattern of building have any impact on the past or the future? Composition for Jane is a mathematical presence in the arrangement of the lines. The speed and tension in the lines picks up on sounds and movement.
Formed in 1998, the Black Horse Poets are Wakefield’s premier poetry society. The poets on the night will be President and co-founder of the Black Horse Poets Michael Yates and co-opted member Angie de Courcy Bower.
The Wakefield Artwalk exists to showcase local, national and international talent in a whole range of settings. For more information about Artwalk events please visit their website.
2018 is the 10th Year of the Artwalk and something Jordans Solicitors is proud to support.
Jordans Solicitors Wakefield office is located within Unity Hall, Westgate, Wakefield, WF1 1EP but we suggest visitors use the entrance on Smyth Street.
