Jane Giblin

I have been researching my father's family which originates in the Furneaux Islands.

Last updated November 11, 2019


The project investigates the intersection we find ourselves in, accommodating the return of some of our land and practices to the Aboriginal Land Council of Tasmania.

I seek to honour my family's work and reflect upon and honour the change. Large ink-pigment works on paper, lithographs, photographs and collaboration with geographer and poet, Pete Hay, have toured around Tasmania as I SHED MY SKIN; A FURNEAUX ISLANDS STORY.

This 2019 drawing is about my son, who recently and contentedly, became an amateur rather than commercial birder. Jane is a Tasmanian artist who graduated from the Tasmanian School of Art.
