Jane Perkins enjoys an international reputation with work in collections from Australia to the United States. She has appeared in a number of publications and has even made work for Television (Last Man on Earth - series 3).
'Madonna and Child' is one of only two pices that are available anywhere in the world and I am happy to say they are both at Words and Pictures Gallery. This is slightly unusual for Perkins in that although the main body of the work is collaged collected materials the background is hand painted and printed paper. It makes a fantastic contrast and lifts the figures from the surface.
One of Perkins cardinal rules is that all components have to be pre-used; nothing can be bought new. It is both ethical and a labour of love - enen if she is missing one vital component she must wait until she is given the correct piece or happens across it at a car-boot sale, junk shop or finds it on the beach.
The colour matching to original painting is brilliant which is really what makes these pieces so sort after.
