Just shopping, always shopping is one of a series of large-scale lace drawings depicting people in unexceptional, everyday moments. These works are made from thread and tarlatan rescued from the garbage bin of the UNSW Art & Design printmaking studio. Jane Théau works with many media, concentrating most recently on woven horsehair combined with bronze sculpture, and textiles combined with dance and performance.

Jane is the Australian Design Centre Award winner of the Seed Stitch Contemporary Textile Awards 2018. She has also won the Rookwood Sculpture Prize, the Grace Cossington Smith Early Career Artist Award and has been a finalist in numerous exhibitions including the Black Swan Portrait Prize, the International Lace Award and the Tamworth Textile Triennial in 2020. She has for four years facilitated a refugee community art project at Auburn Community Centre and is in the final year of a PhD at the Australian National University.

Her curatorial projects include exhibitions such as Y Fibre, www.w and the performance art event Art That Moves. Jane is collaborating with choreographer/filmmaker Sue Healey on her upcoming On View performances in Japan, Hong Kong and at Carriageworks in Sydney. You can see more of Jane’s work during Sydney Craft Week at Barometer and Maunsell Wickes Galleries in Paddington.

The exhibition space has direct street frontage, is accessible to view 24 hours a day and is lit for viewing at night.
