Jane Oldfield

I am having an exhibition, ‘To the Heavens’, in Greenham Common Control Tower in April, May and June 2022. It will include paintings of flying creatures, and skies, photographic collages, and mobiles. I want to make my visitors more conscious of the sky.

For over 10 years now I have been doing a variety of work inspired by flying.
Apart from painting and drawing, I have used my JaneAir plane full of passengers as a performance and used my photographs from the windows of airliners to produce photographic collages. Also photographs taken by my uncle from a photoreconnaissance Spitfire in WW2 have been included in some works.

Most recently I drew shapes of people as they might be in the future when they have developed flying abilities (based on my experience in flying gliders). These have been made into hanging mobiles.
