Teaspoon on Tea Chest No.3
Janine Shute | Pastel and Charcoal on Wood Panel | 23 x 11 inches
Janine was born in Manchester in 1966. She studied at Rochdale School of Art and Humberside School of Art and Design where she completed her BA (hons) in Graphic Design. After graduating in 1988 Janine moved to London and worked as a graphic Designer and later Magazine Art Director and freelancer on titles such a Sugar and B magazine, Tatler, Elle Decoration, New Woman and Cosmopolitan Magazine.
Alongside her design work Janine kept up with her Life Drawing and in 2001 moved from London to where she lives now on a farm in Rural Sussex half an hour from the bustling Art scene of Brighton and amongst the diverse local artists and makers of Lewes.
In 2015 Janine started her current still life work in Pastel with particular interest in Form and Light. Taking everyday vintage utility objects and capturing the purity of there design and sculptural beauty moving toward texture and strength in the original material. Her current body of work Teaspoons on Tea Chests plays with the relationship between the teaspoon and the history of the tea we use while drawing on the actual tea chest panels lends a 3 dimensional ephemeral feel to the work.
