Observation and time are key components of Jane McInally‘s work and practice, and work is often made in response to her immediate surroundings. The artist likes to explore what’s at hand and extend links and connections to the wider world. She aims to produce work that might spark some recognition: the familiar and ordinary seen again as just a little bit new or strange. Work generally consists of a combination of developing Jane’s personal practice and/or collaborations with artists from other disciplines, and working with others within a socially-engaged context. She finds that all aspects will overlap and feed into each other.
