This piece is part of a series of portraits that evolved out of Jane’s interest in the woven Jacquard portraits of the 18th century and Bruno Munari’s book Design as Art (1966). This design, created in Jane’s studio in North London, explores a more abstract form, representing the materiality of cast bronze masks.
Material: Linen, silk & wood
Dimensions: Height: 22cm, Width: 18.5cm, Depth: 2cm
Care Instructions: Can be dusted with a stiff paintbrush
The piece was hand woven on a 24 shaft loom using the ancient Lampas technique, which dates back as far as the 2nd century AD. The compound weave structure was adapted to allow Jane to work on the loom with relative freedom, using texture and colour in a similar way to paint and pencils.
