Gallery

Janis Fry's paintings are in acrylic, watercolour, ink and gouache, and mixed media. Sizes vary from 1 to 4 feet, in any one dimension. Many are for sale.

 

‘My paintings explore the emotional power of colour and are mostly concerned with the mystical quality of the natural landscape and the Tree of Life. I also paint portraits, mythology and still life. I am concerned with light and dark and things half seen and I am fascinated by the boundaries between things where one ends and another begins, by precise and indistinct edges, by merging, fading and emergence and by symbolism. An important motif of mine is portals and ways through between worlds and states of consciousness. I am a member of the Royal Watercolour Society of Wales and have shown work in Paris, Bahrain, Piccadilly, New York, Reykjavic as well as Wales. I undertake portrait commissions, prices starting at £400.’
