Jane Tangney is a Western Australian artist immersed in the ever-evolving genre of landscape painting. Her sensitively observed works are richly nuanced responses – not only to place, but to broader notions of the human condition. She has been selected as a finalist in eight Glover Prizes and was recently highly commended in the Hadley’s Art Prize 2017.

“This new body of work was inspired by a recent trip to Karijini (Banyjima name for the Hamersley Range) situated in the Pilbara region of WA. Nearby lies the ghost town of Wittenoom – a place of significance to my grandparents and dad who moved there in 1947, unaware of the health risks this newly established asbestos mining town would later pose. Wittenoom is a place cemented into the psyche of WA. It’s an ongoing industrial disaster of epic proportion, inspiring Midnight Oil’s anthemic song, Blue Sky Mine.”
