Jane Giblin: The Earth Muzzle - Art Collector

Jane Giblin, 'The Ear Chewer' 2018, ink and pigment on canson, 150 x 120cm. Courtesy of the artist and Colville Gallery, TAS.  Jane Giblin is a unique artist who has drawn the Gothic substance of the Tasmanian midlands for over a decade, expounding on the layers of white settlement in a harsh country, the history that is present, echoes of the previous peoples, the isolation and company of dogs

Her practice is executed largely _en plein air_, standing, drawing, photographing, placing her models starkly in the harsh landscape of thistles, broken gullies, rocky horizons and sheep bones. The dogs are ever present as a reminder of their working role in the landscape, a reminder of the primitive and the colonial hunt as well as continual human companionship.

In _**The Earth Muzzle**_ we engage with her drawings, their freedom of line, energy, directness and strength. Giblin's ability to impart the nature of bodies, the sensuousness of fur, the colours of the earth, movement and propulsion is central to her practice. The photographs similarly act as a actual point in time, but are flat and less dimensional than the depth of the swirling explosive drawings and portraits.
