Jane Hodgetts ~ State of Flux

Using a range of traditional and exploratory jewellery techniques, Jane’s work hints at the passing of time, where positive and negative space play with light and shadow, often asymmetrical and teasing us with the idea of imperfection. Jane hopes that the viewer will pause, consider and engage with the works, whilst considering the passing of time and reflect on ideas of fragility, human connectedness with nature as well as the relationship to self. She wants to consider the role of jewellery in relation to the act of collecting things (that can trigger memory and remind us of time passing) whilst challenging the concepts of what jewellery is. Jane is interested in contrasts and contradictions, the elegant and refined alongside the textured and worn, and in the question ‘Is it old or is it new?’. Her hope is that her jewellery will appear as if it has had its own significant history, as if dug from the ground during an archaeological dig.

Jane holds degrees in Fine Arts from the University of Tasmania and in Teaching from the University of Melbourne. She works as an Art teacher and is a founding member of State of Flux Workshop, in Hobart. Jane was a finalist in the 2019 and 2016 Design Tasmanian Award and has been the recipient of an Arts Tasmania and Regional Arts Tasmanian grant.
