1964 · United Kingdom
Using the language of traditional material and technique to offer revolutionary visual statements, British artist Jane Bustin emphasizes the elements of concept and collaboration throughout her artistic practice.
Incorporating an incredible variety media into her creations, Bustin aims in her art to bring the nebulous concepts of literature and philosophy into physical, artistic form. Undeterred by the limits imposed by terms such as formalism or abstraction, Bustin maneuvers through each composition as she contemplates a given theme, upending expectations all the while.
Born in London in 1964, Bustin trained at Portsmouth Polytechnic. Today, Bustin is based in London and has enjoyed numerous accolades for her work, including the Pollack Krasner Award. Recent solo exhibitions of her work include “Jane Bustin: Rehearsal” at Copperfield Gallery in London (2016) and “The Feeling of Things” at Fox Jensen in Sydney (2019). Her work is also included among notable collections such as The Victoria and Albert Collection in London.
