Janine Creaye - Public ArtI studied at the University of Northumberland, graduating in 1983, and at Chelsea School of Art and Design, gaining a Masters degree in Public Art in 1990.
The majority of my work is carving in stone and wood and studies in drawing, clay or plaster.
I have exhibited extensively in London and the South East, including Cadogan Contemporary Art, Knightsbridge; Mc Hardy Sculpture Co, Tower Bridge; Mall Galleries, London; Sussex Art Club, Brighton; Gardner Arts Centre, University of Sussex.
I have drawings in the collection of the Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London and Harold Pinter.
I have permanent outdoor works at Quakers' Acre, Guilford town centre; Buchan Country Park, West Sussex; and Tilgate Park in Crawley, West Sussex.
My work is symbolic and contemplative. I often respond to movement and expression of stage performers as a starting point, but use this to find a stillness that holds the potential to move in any direction. A stillness that holds the momentary balance between extremes.
I am influenced by the qualities of each material that I use and the marks made during the process of sculpting them, there will be some reference to this remaining visible and integral in the final piece.
The work I find most influential to me is early Indian Buddhist and Hindu stone carving.
I also have a public art page.
