As the title of this latest series of works by Jane Fairhurst suggests, 'Freefall' is a collection of works which picture a small hybrid figure plummeting to its apparent doom. Appropriating images from Hokusai's beautiful 'Small Flower Series' of prints, Fairhurst, then scales up the images by painting them in acrylic on canvas. In Hokusai's prints we see a small bird; in Jane Fairhurst re-works we see a plastic 'Barbie- like' doll with a bird scull for its head and a worryingly angular body. "The paintings hope to reflect both the cultural exchange between Asia, Europe and the U.S.A., brought about through trade, and, 21st century industrialised society's detachment from the natural world…I aim to achieve a level of ambiguity in my work, humour with dark undertones." Jane Fairhurst
