Thankfully we live in an era where Marc Newson exhibits his furniture with Larry Gagosian; Tracey Emin creates handbags for Longchamp and Takashi Murakami runs an art and design empire. Why divorce one from the other?
David Band (1959-2011)
With a keenly honed eye for colour and form, Jane Tangney effortlessly shifts between the disciplines of art and design.
Whether creating a painting, a house, an interior, a garden or a business card, Jane’s work strives for the Japanese notion of shibusa, where elements include simplicity, skill, modesty, silence, nature and a balance between tension and harmony.
Immersed in the ever-evolving genre of landscape painting, Jane’s art practice forms the core of her visual identity. Jane has been exhibiting in group and solo shows since 1998 and has been selected as a finalist in 8 Glover Prizes, as well as being highly commended in the Hadley’s Art Prize 2017. Her works are held in private and public collections including Artbank, Curtin University - Perth, City of Fremantle and The Westin - Perth.
