Artist's statement

 

Jan's practice is an interrogation of line, how it interacts with itself, the space it inhabits and, most importantly, the viewer.  

 

Creating site specific installations in tape each line is intuitive, sometimes breaking through the usual confines of an artwork, across a wall or around a corner.    Jan plays with the work, adding, discarding, re-placing or redirecting, changing the visual exchange between artist and viewer through the time of an installation, as they walk past or through the different vistas.  

 

Jan works in response to the architecture and the social setting bringing new energy to often ignored and discounted spaces.  With  the introduction of anamorphic and sculptural elements a new spatial awareness can draw the viewer into the installation, leading minds away from thoughts and into your imagination.    

 

By its very nature the work is performative and ephemeral but is captured in prints and interpreted into screen prints and lately with the space and time to consider her practice through lockdown, thread has had an important role in continuing her interrogation of line.

 

As well as taking on the role of Print Fellow at University of Northampton, Jan now works from a studio within Arts Central in Milton Keynes and is also supported by CRE8TAPES who provide all the tape for the artist's installations.

News

 

Jan is currently re-working the corridor installations completed earlier in the year at the  Arts Central studios.  Using the existing materials, the tape works have become more insular and individual, reflecting the artist's response to the Covid-19 virus.  

 

The installation project planned for  Milton Keynes University Hospital as part of Arts for Health MK, is currently on hold.   Jan has created 4 individual tape pieces for display when the Arts for Health MK is given the go ahead from the Hospital.

 

Jan will be continuing as a Print Fellow  at University of Northampton into 2020/21, and hopes to continue her print projects when the University comes out of lockdown.

 

cre8tapes continue to generously support Jan with materials for her installations.
