“This body of work has allowed me to make my small miniature stories and scenes into large framed pieces , like looking out a window they are contained.
Using the same techniques as my smaller jewellery pieces, a conversation begins, we all work together, the bumps I’ve hammered in the metal, the drips of paint or marks made accidental or with purpose, I trust my intuition.
My drawings talk of the home, the landscape, the garden, weaving itself into the human experience of building boundaries around us. The view is thru a window and what can be seen, what lines are there and I just let the abstract world I prefer to live in come out.”
Jane Frances Reilly is widely known as an art jeweller. With a practice based in Melbourne, Jane has recently been asked to exhibit in a group show representing a select group of Australian artists and makers at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs Paris. We will be exhibiting a large amount of Jane’s art jewellery along with these new works which are both reversible and designed to be viewed either hanging or standing.
