The Wildlife Art of Janene Elizabeth Farmer

ARTIST'S STATEMENT

AS A CHILD I WAS ALWAYS INTERESTED IN THE INTERACTION OF NATURE AND THE FRAGILITY OF LIFE. IN SEARCHING THE WILD PLACES OF NATURE FOR INSPIRATION I FIND BEAUTY, TRUTH AND FAITH.

DURING THE YEARS I LIVED ON CORONADO ISLAND I SPENT MANY HOURS WALKING, RUNNING AND SWIMMING AT THE BEACH. SOMETIMES I WOULD DISCOVER SEA BIRDS AND ANIMALS ON THE SHORE AND WOULD CARRY THE ANIMALS HOME TO CARE FOR THEM. IT WAS THROUGH THESE EXPERIENCES THAT I BECAME INTERESTED IN REHABILITATING NATIVE WILDLIFE. BEING AROUND THESE CREATURES AFFORDED ME AN OPPORTUNITY TO DRAW, PAINT AND SCULPT THE ANIMALS. IT ALSO MADE ME KEENLY AWARE OF THE CONSTANT DAILY STRUGGLE OF THESE NATIVE INHABITANTS TO SURVIVE IN OUR MODERN WORLD... A WORLD NOT ALWAYS INTERESTED IN THEIR DELICATE BEAUTY.

A TRIP INTO THE JUNGLES AND CITIES OF THE PHILIPPINES INSPIRED A STRING OF WORK TITLED ANGEL CHILDREN SPIRITS OF THE UNIVERSE, A SERIES ABOUT PRESERVING OUR PLANET EARTH FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS.

IN MY HEART NATURE AND ART HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THE FOCUS OF MY LIFE. AS AN ADULT I STRIVE TO PEEL AWAY THE LAYERS OF DAILY SUPERFICIALITY AND TO FIND THE CORE OF FEELINGS THROUGH THE LOVE OF LIFE, NATURE AND ITS BEAUTIFUL CREATURES. IT IS THROUGH MY ART THAT I CONNECT WITH THIS REQUISITE AND FIND BEAUTY AND HOPE FOR OUR DELICATE PLANET EARTH.
