We are pleased to announce the gallery’s representation of artist Jane Corrigan!

Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran is pleased to announce the gallery’s representation of artist Jane Corrigan. Her paintings depict scenes drawn from her imagination. They evoke art history and popular culture – in particular the narrative forms of cinema and the novel, suggesting a kind of comic book impressionism. Jane Corrigan’s timeless works, always located in times and places that are difficult to determine, give her art a universal value.

Corrigan’s paintings and drawings of women and girls explore interiority by way of self-referential allegories and parodies. Executed in a wet-to-wet method, her paintings are generated by first “getting to know” her subjects via oil studies, which she describes as a process of  “chasing” her subjects down through brush marks. Within these studies and drawings she discovers her characters for the works on canvas. Corrigan’s focus on solitary women and narrative came out of a desire to tease out a particular kind of female subjectivity.

Don’t miss Jane’s first solo at the gallery this September!
