Artist Jane Hall’s works on exhibition

AN EXHIBITION of paintings by Great Yarmouth artist Jane Hall is being held at the Assembly House in Norwich until April 29.

The painter, who makes ice cream a central theme in her work, grew up in Clacton before moving to Yarmouth as a teenager – both traditional British seaside resorts – and now just lives just a two-minute walk from the resort’s seafront, with its numerous ice cream sellers and beach-side cafes.

“I first started taking an interest in ice creams while planning my first major solo show last year,” Jane said.

“I want to capture the fun of the seaside, painting popular culture, while at the same time evoking the nostalgia we all feel for the British seaside holiday.

“For me, ice creams are a symbol of the British holiday and of the seduction of adverts, which is a key theme in my work. All the ice creams I paint I have eaten and enjoyed; except the plastic ones”.

Her painting Soft Scoop was shown in the Chelsea art gallery and the Djanogly gallery in Nottingham.
