Our own path
11 October – 31 October 2020
Jane Giblin and David Marsden paintings, drawings and prints
An exhibition of established artists Jane Giblin and David Marsden who have during their lifetime worked to present a personal defined path.
Jane developed a large family project, I Shed My Skin, A Furneaux Islands Story, a collection of 91 works including black and white photography, ink and pigment works on paper and lithography. Commencing on Flinders Island, I Shed My Skin travelled around Tasmania during 2019 and 2020, finishing with the publication of a large illustrated book, documenting the project, it’s over fifty participants, some of their history and the part – collaboration during the project with the wonderful local writer Pete Hay.
“Jane explores questions of identity and how one’s relationship with a land must consider its history. Jane toys with the intersectionality of female oppression and indigenous cultures by European and British settlers, and the suppression of the human animal” says Isabella Foster
The works in this exhibition are engaging and hold a touchstone to the essence of her interest.
Jane is represented by Colville Gallery
Work illustrated “My Mother Judi ……..by Myself 2”, ink and pigment
David’s work relates to using found, created and embedded objects through the use of a variety of media which includes painting, printmaking and drawing. The paint builds to an image that sings to the viewer in an energetic way.
As a former educator he has built a distinct clarity of what is the best pathway for him as an artist to take, and has built on earlier work and knowledge to create a series of works for this exhibition which are a synopsis of his artistic career.
The time David Marsden spent living and working on Flinders island in the early nineteen eighties was extremely important in the development of his visual language, and his language has changed and developed since moving from that stimulating island environment and culture.
Both artists have a love of Flinders Island
