The Past and Present Here Unite
The Artist - Tessa Jane
I draw the viewer in to see in new ways-to observe and respond to the works, extracting their own experiences and perspectives and gaining new interpretations. Sometimes I use the sewing machine as a drawing tool along with found and conventional materials, but the work has many layers visually and conceptually, using printed, collaged, drawn, and stitched mixed media. I recycle and repurpose. Sourcing discarded objects, thoughts and feelings helping them to be heard. Her work speaks volumes of her practice and principals, described as the next Piper and winning the Oxford International Art Fair 2016, selected to exhibit in The XIth Florence biennale in 2017, shortlisted for several major exhibitions in 2019, and The Society of Women Artists in 2020. Tessa Jane’s work will have a strong narrative and pattern to unpick piece by piece until you discover the story within.
