For Central West artist Jane Tyack, the process of growing up came with a loss of childhood imagination, which she now seeks to reclaim through her work.

Making assemblages allows her to re-gather the threads of childhood as she aims to make uninhibited and whimsical works.

“Growing up was a wrench for me—to have to let go of my youthful world fired by my imagination and need for excitement. All at once there was so much external expectation. I found myself drawing comparisons between my desires and aspirations compared to the evolving lives of my peers. Why did I have to grow up so quickly?”

— Jane Tyack
