StolenSpace Gallery is proud to present ‘Inner World’ the new solo show from artist duo Jana & JS.
Jana & JS are an Australian / French artist duo who’s dynamic work can be found both in the urban and gallery space. Their work is created from their joint passion for photography and the urban aesthetic. Inspired by the city, playing with portraiture and texture, the duo have a truly unique style using the stencil technique to create their images and working exclusively with their own photos.
It is their photographic practice that leads them to choose the stencil technique, ideal for making works of extreme minutiae from their own photographs, on wood and recycled materials. It is this use of recycled materials as their backdrops which has become their signature style. Combining their modern portraits with often organic or found backdrops creating a beautiful juxtaposition of textures.
This new body of work from Jana & JS is marked by relationships, nostalgia, and the importance of time passing. Using found materials and objects sourced during their own travels and urban explorations, their work creates a sense of time passing as these materials have aged and faded. This is the first time their technique of combining these materials, creating their own assembled supports, have been shown in a solo exhibition.
