Artist Statement

In 2020, Jane Bodnaruk completed a Master of Visual Arts (Advanced) at the Australian National University (ANU), Canberra. In the same year, she was awarded an Emerging Artist Support Scheme (EASS) from Gallery of Small Things (GOST), Canberra.

Jane is interested in the everyday textiles that surround us – our clothes and our household linens. These everyday textiles are invested with tacit memories, and we can be moved by emotions when we handle them.

Jane explores the interweaving between lives and the textiles surrounding them: what complicated stories are incorporated into the threads of warp and weft of household linens, or in the stitches and seams of garments.
