This September, head on over to Rex-Livingston Art + Objects where renowned local artist, Jane Canfield, will be displaying
her new collection ‘All Over the Place”. Canfield’s practice in the French ‘en plein air’ art discipline has drawn admiration in creative
circles across NSW and VIC, her signature work is now highly sought by collectors.
Canfield’s new collection ‘All Over the Place’ was inspired from her recent adventures around NSW, from Newcastle to Sydney, to the Warrumbungles
and throughout the environs of the Blue Mountains and associated areas west of the Central Tablelands. These travels were taken in her retro 70’s Orange
VW Kombi Camper, warmly named "Dot". As the affectionate nickname suggests, Dot was more than a method of transport for the artist.
The vehicle provided Canfield a wholistic means of travel functioning as transport, a camper and even a mobile studio when needed.
Canfield says, "Painting en plein air is a way of life for me now, especially now I have Dot to camp where I want to and experience the sense of place
and subject of my chosen destinations and interests. I've always got my sketch pad, paints and gouaches close at hand and two black pooches to keep
"The great use of light and her distinct chalky palette brings an eclectic body of works together in one space, a style and composition that is unmistakably
Canfield. Her works have an honesty and developing maturity along with a unique combination of form and tonal ranges, creating a truly identifiable
Canfield mark in her paintings, sketches and studies." Says David Rex-Livingston on Canfields new work.
Rex-Livingston Art + Objects opened in the Paris end of Katoomba St, roughly 15 months ago, after many years in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs.

Blue Mountains experience.
