“Jane Martin’s paintings come at you with an incredible emotional force”
Susan Crean, “Berkeley Castle Works 1984–1987”. Canadian Art, Fall 1987.
“[Jane Martin] has entered an intellectual discourse which matches suffering with denial. [Her] latest images are her most troubling. She layers anger over suffering until the metal gyration becomes unbearable.”
Lisa Rochon, “Prettified Portraits of Suffering”. Globe & Mail, 28/5/87, p.D7.
