I was not aware of Jane Neal's work previously, so it was a huge delight when I saw it this year at Harrogate.
Written on the Skin by Jane Neal
The surge in the belly is the familiar sign that I am seeing something emotive and individual. Time needs to be given, more than these occasions normally allow.
Jane's work is concerned with connections between textiles, skin and touch; the continuity of the visual and the tactile. It speaks to all of us as humans in our everyday, though no less individual experience of our lives.
I look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.
