Jane Hyslop works across art and design making artist’s books and works on paper. She combines natural and human histories by investigating points of tension where these different worlds meet. Place and identity are vital within her work and subject matter is often sourced in her native Midlothian.
Hyslop develops these themes through intensive research, observational drawing, reading, topographic study and material experimentation brought together in works which visually convey narratives and detail findings.
Her work is held in many collections including Yale Center for British Art, Tate Library Special Collections, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art Archive and National Library of Scotland. Hyslop also undertakes commissioned work with wide ranging applications.
She lectures in Painting and Illustration at Edinburgh College of Art, The University of Edinburgh.
