Former South East resident, emerging artist Jane Skeer, will create her largest and most ambitious work to date at Bordertown’s Walkway Gallery in 2019.

Inspired by the creative possibilities found in everyday items, Jane rearranges thousands of discarded objects to create something new, providing thoughtful comment on her observations of people, objects and materials on an impressive scale.

After spending time as artist-in-residence in the Tatiara region, she will create a snapshot of her time spent with the community there and the materials she’s found along the way.

South Australian emerging artist Jane Skeer’s practice focuses on sculpture and installation that is inspired by the creative possibilities found in everyday items, often providing a thoughtful comment on her observations of people, objects and materials.

Working with the power of numbers, thousands of discarded objects are carefully arranged to create work on an impressive scale, which will allow the viewer to experience colour, texture and pattern in entirely new dimensions.

Skeer will create her largest and most ambitious work to-date at the Walkway Gallery – a snapshot, a reminder of traces of feelings and interactions she’s had with the Tatiara community and the materials she’s found along the way.

“I hope to create an engaging, immersive environment, capturing the essence of the local community — what it means to live in the Tatiara.”

The installation will be unveiled at the Walkway Gallery on Friday 29 March, 2019. Artist floor talks, adult and kids workshops to be announced.
