Jane Théau

Jane Théau develops sculptural installations, such as her on-going series of large-scale embroidered Threadworks. Jane said, ‘Given my conceptual concern with sustainability, I enjoy the fact that these textile works use very little material, and weigh but a few grams, even as room-sized installations…I particularly appreciate the metaphorical qualities of textiles: the ravelling and unravelling, the weaving and fraying, the mending and rending.’ Jane has a Master of Art (Sculpture) from the College of Fine Arts (COFA), University of NSW, a Master of International Affairs from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Applied Science from the University of Technology Sydney. She has actively exhibited in solo and group exhibitions since 2009, was a finalist in the 2011 Powerhouse Museum International Lace Award, and this year curated Y Fibre, an exhibition of male textile art at the Ewart Gallery in Sydney.
