12 June , 10:00 am – 7 January , 4:00 pm
Pasco-White’s Drawing Wall, Becoming-other, responds to the environment of Greater Shepparton and the agricultural and aqua industries.
Now on to its 38th iteration, the SAM Drawing Wall has become synonymous with celebrating creative talent and connecting artists and the Greater Shepparton Community. This series of large scale commissioned artworks enliven the foyer space at the entrance to the museum.
Jahnne Pasco-White is an artist currently living and working on Dja Dja Wurrung land and waters, or Chewton, Victoria. She often works with the re-purposing of previous works, and incorporating organic materials and pigments drawn from natural matter alongside the traditional medium of acrylic paint.
Pasco-White’s Drawing Wall Becoming-other, responds to the environment of Greater Shepparton and the agricultural and aqua industries. She has sourced waste-product fruit from local suburban areas and independent fruit and vegetable farmers to extract natural dyes and pigments for use in the artwork. Using organic materials against those traditionally identified with art making, such as acrylic paint, results in swathes of rich colour and texture.
Jahnne Pasco-White is represented by STATION.
