Jane’s artist statements:
My art practice is predominantly based in sculpture and installation, involving material in a state of flux. I work with the discarded materials of the everyday, making audiences re-think relationships with the familiar ready-made objects and their associated sensory/haptic memories.
Jane works with discarded materials of the everyday and presents them anew, making audiences re-think relationships with the familiar ready-made objects and their associated memories.

Our Arts and Culture team have been working with a number of artists to develop a range of temporary and not so temporary outdoor artworks for Modbury. Look out for woven fences, urban jewellery, turf drawings and a number of murals. Over the next few weeks, we’ll publish project updates.
Here’s a few examples
Urban jewellery by Jessamy Pollock and Tea Tree Gully Youth.
Outside the Library, City of Tea Tree Gully Civic Centre, 571 Montague Road Modbury.
Jessamy is a contemporary jewellery and object designer/maker with a broad practice that includes community art and small public art projects. For this skills development and public art project she taught local youth to create and install a range of jewellery pieces for the outdoor environment.
Here’s some images from the workshops at Gallery 1855 Studio
