In her current works, Jane Lackey uses meticulous processes to orchestrate cut paintings on paper that embed the matrix of woven grids into a network of fluid forces. Informed by her lifelong affinity to textiles and the interlacement of threads, her works on paper unite traits of fragility and strength and investigate the tissue of human connections.
Jane Lackey has lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico since 2009. She received her BFA from the California College of the Arts in Oakland and her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Lackey’s early work primarily focused on the use of fiber; within the last few years, Lackey has turned more and more to mixed media presentation involving stickers, labels, tape, and dots, along with sewing, drawing, and painting on fabric. Her work has been shown at the Loranger Architecture Center in Detroit, the Wellcome Trust in London, and the Tang Museum in Saratoga Springs, New York, among other venues. She received the 2011 Creative Artist Exchange Fellowship sponsored by the Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission.
