The Delicate Touch of Mary Jane AnsellErotica // Friday, 18 Apr 2014
'With a love of intriguing narratives and in catching a contained but dramatic moment Mary Jane Ansell's work draws influences from a multitude of inspirations, from classical portraiture to the world of haute couture and with an appreciation for a refined technique that invokes the past but with a resolutely modern viewpoint.
Mary Jane was a previous finalist in the prestigious BP Portrait Award in 2004, 2009, 2010 and 2012 and has exhibited several times with the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and The Threadneedle Prize. Based in the UK she shows internationally with recent group and solo exhibitions in London, New York, Singapore and LA.'
