Jana Jaros Artist Statement
“Colours” is anything but a still life. It was an idea that refused to be still in my mind. I could talk about chroma and hue, but “Colours” is a personalty that creates a personal space. Colour, in general, is intrinsically linked to my love of expression and what I do. It speaks for me; it allows my introverted thoughts to speak with a bold expressive voice. Without my paints, narratives would lose expression and canvases would be an empty stage or book. Whether it is exploding or subdued I owe a lot to colour, my ink.
