Jane Eppel is a South African artist based in the Cape Peninsula, the smallest yet richest of the world's six Floral Kingdoms. Inspired by nature, her work focuses on the abundance and diversity which daily surrounds her. Recent work includes multiple-plate prints of insects that form complex mandala shapes. While the insects depict metamorphosis and transformation, the meditative, balanced shapes of the mandalas are, in Jungian thought, seen as symbols representing the effort to re-unify the soul. Her new body of work, to be exhibited in 2017, re-imagines the simple daisy in a myriad of shapes and symbols. Jane is married to fellow South African artist, Nic Bladen, whose cast botanical sculptures have been exhibited internationally. They live in Kommetjie with their two children.
