I SAW THIS AND THOUGHT OF YOU
Jane Tudge brought her waxworks of the banal, the significant and the insignificant to three Gallery. These quintessentially domestic works were part of an ongoing body of work which documented the artist’s experiences and explored the fragile power of memory. She is interested in how the memory works and in evoking memories, offering up objects as containers for recollection. Here she was showing clothing and textiles, taking inspiration from Louise Bourgeois who said ‘clothes are an exercise in memory’ as well as some pieces made especially for three.
She uses wax as her medium because of its contrary connotations of preservation and jeopardy, making what she calls ‘physical photograms’ as well as small sculptural works.
