Jane Shepherd

Project summary:

I work as a graphic designer and illustrator but have been moving towards more autobiographical work using both word and image. I have become increasingly involved in printmaking – a practice that encourages replication and yet allows for change.

My interest is in secrecy and disclosure explored through forms of containment and revelation. These pieces are the beginning of a body of work that looks at disease and medication. The work uses abstraction and the complexity of pattern to create dynamic and shifting surfaces that hold, contain and expose. The motifs are also an attempt to reclaim a more poetic relationship to illness and the body, in opposition to the distancing that medical language encourages.
