Here at 45 Southside we are currently planning a textile exhibition from 18th October – 17th November 2013. Jane Price is one of the five artists who will be exhibiting. Part of the exhibtion will be three artists who have not exhibited with 45 Southside before, Debbie Rudolph, Sue Spooner and Emma West.
Jane has recently delivered some of her new work, a little taster of her textile work. Many of you will remember Jane for her stunning inlaid paper and three-dimensional mixed media pieces, but textiles and stitiching have always been part of her work.
Jane describes her latest work:
“45 Southside encourages experimentation which is an encouragement to an artist. This gallery has accepted and welcomed my diverse works in paper and textiles. My current brightly coloured abstracts have channelled an interest in saturated colour combinations; the works are like paintings but are also embroidered.”
“Being an artist involves developing new ideas, acquiring skills, responding to outside stimuli of time and place and implementing this acquisition of experience. Not repeating yourself is a challenge as it is a process of self discovery, but it is essential to keep studio practice vibrant. I believe in inclusion rather than exclusion and looking at drawing, painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, textiles, and papermaking are all enriching and interconnected disciplines! This cross fertilization is evident in the works I produce.”
