Delicious Icecream, by Jane Hall
No trip to the seaside would be complete without a 99, or Knickerbocker glory, and having lived by the seaside for most of her life, it is no surprise that Norfolk-based artist, Jane Hall, makes ice cream a central theme in her work. She grew up in Clacton before moving to Great Yarmouth as a teenager – both traditional British seaside resorts – and now just lives just a two-minute walk from Great Yarmouth’s busy 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 explains.
“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”.
Jane will also be exhibiting at the Fisher gallery in Bungay for the month of July and in Great Yarmouth library. 19th September -1st October. www.jane-hall.co.uk
