Description Jane Puylagarde is a painter who lives and works in France.
In the 1980s Jane Puylagarde was a stylist and launched her own prêt-à-porter line which rapidly
attracted both a French and international clientele. Her career took another tangent when in Mexico, she
met a female artisan painter. Watching her embellish her local potteries with myriad little colourful dots
influenced Jane Puylagarde to turn her hand to painting and ultimately to make it her life goal.
In the early 1990s, back in Paris, Jane produced her first paintings. Armed with her hair pins, and exempt
from traditional painting techniques, she deposited paint in a series of droplets until an harmonious
landscape was obtained. Her works are exclusively composed of these droplets. Jane works on the
canvas before it is stretched. She handles this flexible material like an embroiderer and adorns it with a
multitude of little pearls of coloured paint. " The whole process came about very naturally, with a desire
to increase the density and the height of the droplets to better isolate them and thus expose the role of
each one. Just like each particle is linked with its neighbor forming swirls, spirals and cosmic settings,
each and every shadow amplifies the depth of the picture (…)" she explains. It's the encounter between
these groups of dots and the variable texture which gives the picture its movement. Abstract,
monochrome and brimming with substance the works of Jane Puylagarde conger up as much aerial
views of landscapes as milky ways and cloud formations.
Puylagarde has been regularly exhibited in Parisian and International galleries.
