Imogen Jade’s Picnic

Image: Imogen Jade, 2018. Image Description: A drawing by artist Imogen Jade, made using felt tip markers on white paper. The drawing depicts a series of labelled household objects; a kettle, a plate and steamy bowl. In the top right hand corner, a grid outlined in red is filled with various bright colours. Another rectangle is filled with rainbow-coloured squares and circles with repeated arch shapes.

20 August – 16 October, 10am – 4pm

Imogen Jade loves all things picnics, from confectionary, fruity drinks and flower-filled gardens. Drop in to her installation and make your own picnic blanket and 3-dimensional paper kettle to leave in the gallery or take home.

Bookings not required.

Imogen Jade’s paintings are populated with cocktails, unicorns, butterflies and the inside of cabinets. Jade has a keen interest in glitz, pop culture and 90s sitcoms, like Seinfeld, Will and Grace and The Nanny. She is preparing to perform a 96 hour work involving a mechanical slide and her mother, taking on the personas of television characters. In 2018, she partnered with Shopfront Theatre to transform the cafe at Lurnea High School with a large mural and helped C-A-C celebrate their 30th Anniversary with ‘Creamy Bar’, a cocktail bar filled with custom recipes. ‘Creamy Bar’ also featured at Sydney Contemporary (2019) and the opening night of Justene William’s She Conjured the Clouds (2020). Recently Jade collaborated with artist Jessica Pound on amenity screens at Campbelltown’s Eagle Farm Park and was commissioned to create sidewalk light designs as part of Campbelltown City Council’s On Q Queen Street Activation.
