Isolation is a notable change in tone from a majority of Shaw’s pieces. Recollecting the shared experiences of loneliness that people endured during lockdown, Shaw considered how to convey this desolate emotion, using the figure of a horse. As he stands unsteadily on a precipice, the artist writes, “Ugly can be beautiful. There is a great beauty in sadness.”


Jane asserts, ‘I must never tire from looking, observing and learning’. Her powerful style – dynamic and full of movement – mirrors this affirmation. All her pieces, small or large, reveal how she expressively handles the clay (before casting) with her fingers, as if painting with a broad brush.


Jane Shaw grew up in Gloucestershire and learned to sculpt from an inspirational teacher. A confluence of her love of wildlife and passion for sculpture led to her creating highly emotive sculptures of animals. She exhibits and sells her work nationally and has a permanent display in her studio in Dorset.
