" 'War + Peace', by multimedia Artist Jane Lee McCracken brings together a selection of her intricate Biro drawings.   This beautifully produced hardback book replicates every detail of Jane's black and colour Biro drawings from several bodies of work produced between 2008 - 2014, including 'Tales from the East', 'The Woodcutter's Cottage', 'In Homage to the Last Great Carnivores of Eurasia' and her recent artwork for conservation projects.  Inspired by her passion for childhood memoirs, fairy tales, travel, forests and animals and her continuing exploration of the themes of ‘war’ and ‘loss’, Jane makes multiplex, layered drawings in colour or black Biro, using her drawings as inspiration to create objects and installations.  Taking photographs of films and documentaries, her muse Lily, people, animals and found objects as the foundation of her work, she builds complex layers of drawn images in Biro as if film still projections, resulting in monotone or colour abstracted pieces with an ethereal, cinematic quality.  Her aim is to make art that represents the beauty and brutal reality of life thus creating “memorials of lives lived, both human and animal and ways of life lost”. Evoking consideration of loss whether through war or disaster, her work draws upon empathy for the emotional or physical scars experienced by humans, animals or the environment."
