Hard to Handle
Mixed Media on 1950's Linen Napkin
The Artist - Jane Villaweaver
Jane studied Fine Art at Cheltenham School of Art and went on to study Experimental Textiles at the Royal College of Art, London. Fascinated by objects that tell stories and stimulate curiosity, Jane experiments with form and function. Contrasting the familiar with an element of surprise, her representations of cutlery appear aged by time, worn from use, forgotten, their characteristics and imperfections are adapted and transformed. It is this physical process of making, the sensitive response to materials and the interaction of techniques that stimulates her imagination. When the pieces come together they make an intriguing still life that hopefully engages the viewer to connect with the content.
