Artist Jane Perkins

Athough her background is in textiles, she now works predominantly with plastic. In her current body of work, Plastic Classics, Old Masters are given a contemporary twist. She uses anything of the right size, shape or colour: toys, shells, buttons, beads, jewellery, curtain hooks, springs etc. No colour is added – everything is used exactly ‘as found’.
