Jane Perkins [Artista Plástica Britânica]

A artista Jane Perkins, de Devon, cria retratos usando objetos pessoais que não possuem valor e são jogados fora pelas pessoas.

"Eu comecei a fazer os retratos ricamente decorados no último ano [da faculdade], usando bijuterias quebradas, brinquedos de plástico e outros objetos pequenos", diz Jane, que participa do coletivo de arte Devon Artists Network.

Ela conta que a inspiração veio da obra de cabeleireiros equatorianos que descobriu quando pesquisava sobre arte a partir de materiais recicláveis. Os cabeleireiros do Equador usam diversos tipos de objetos brilhantes e estranhos para adornar penteados.

Desde 2008, a artista trabalha com esse  tipo de arte. 

I am a 're-maker', taking inspiration from found objects and working them into something new.

Although my background is in textiles, I now work predominantly with plastic.
I love art with an element of fun and the unexpected, and hope my work will make you smile!

I work as an artist in found materials, taking inspiration from found objects and working them into something new. I love art with an element of fun and the unexpected and I love what I do!

Having worked for 17 years as a nurse and 10 years as a Mum at home, I took a degree in textiles at Somerset College of Arts and Technology, graduating with a First in 2006. During the course, I particularly enjoyed the recycling projects and  made recycling the focus of my final year.

Since 2008, I have been making iconic portraits from found materials.
In 2010, I started making Plastic Classics, re-interpreting famous Artworks using the same method. I use any materials of the right size and shape; plastic toys, beads, buttons, shells etc. No colour is added - all materials are exactly as found.

Since 2010, I have been represented by Will's Art Warehouse, a gallery in Putney, London. My work has been sold in London, New York and Singapore.
