Explorations into mystery, things unknown/ invisible/ hidden are the presiding forces within the work - in the natural world, health, psychology, culture and politics.
Since 2005 Jane has been fermenting probiotics and is researching and growing sustainable bio-materials for sculpture.
Living, ecological materials are fed, incubated, fermented and grown. This is a new perspective for sculpture. Conventional sculpture materials can be expensive to manufacture and buy. Microbial cellulose and mycelium is economic, light-weight and durable.
Jane has been a scuba diver since 1985 and has witnessed coral bleaching, massive depletion of fish, corals, sponges and other sea life. She works with a marine conservation group as a diver removing rubbish and ghost fishing equipment from the sea; including lobster pots, rope, netting, plastic and metal. Any creatures trapped in the lost pots are returned to the sea.
