The London Open 2015 Q&A with artist Jane Bustin. A FAD Magazine Interview

The London Open Whitechapel Gallery’s triennial exhibition has just opened. 48 of the most dynamic and exciting artists have been chosen from an entry of over 2100 and this online interview comes from FAD Magazine …

1. Have you always felt yourself an artist?
Probably after the first week of art school when I realised you could actually just paint all day.

2. Can you tell us more about your work and what are the main ideas you would like to express?
I make abstract formal compositions reflecting on modernism and materiality. & I take influences from 14th century frescos, 15th century Dutch painting, iconography, modernist architecture and design, French modernist literature, dance, fabrics, books, hardware stores, Japanese ceramics, neon signs, cosmetics, sweet wrappers …

My main interest is to create a resonance within the work that goes beyond its material properties.

3. How do you start the process of making work?
The start of the work is always through the choice of materials.

4. Do you consider the viewer, when making your work?
Always and never, since I am primarily the viewer.

5. Name 3 artists that have inspired your work.
Masaccio

Vermeer

Rothko

6. What defines something as a work of art?
When you need to look again and again and something stirs in the pit of your stomach.

7. How was it finding out you had been chosen as part of The London Open?
Satisfying

8. How have you found working with the Whitechapel Gallery on the exhibition?
The curators and assistants have been superb, I have never before as an Artist in a large open exhibition felt so considered, involved and appreciated.

9. What plans do you have to continue to pursue your art career in 2015?
I am looking forward to exhibiting in November at the Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh in a show ‘Resistance and Persistence’ based on an essay by Sean Scully on Giorgio Morandi, including works from both artists.

10. Final Question – if you had £49,000 to buy art who would you invest it in?
Women Artists over the age of 49!
