Jahnne Pasco-White takes an intuitive, gestural and sculptural approach to her paintings. She incorporates a variety of media including found materials and heavy, traditionally sculptural materials such as plaster, resin and wax into her work. These are applied to more delicate supports such as linen, plastic and paper to create works with dynamic, highly textured surfaces that vacillate between flat and sculptural. Her approach to the manipulation of her gathered materials aims to both harness their properties and highlight their material differences, as well as to layer and obscure her mark-making.
Jahnne has held solo exhibitions at Artspace, Auckland; 910 Lofts, New York; and Testing Grounds, Bus Projects, Rearview, Long Division Gallery (forthcoming), C3, Counihan Gallery, Seventh and Brunswick Lake in Melbourne. She has participated in group exhibitions in New York at Pulse Art Fair and Honey Space Gallery; in Melbourne at Slopes and Brunswick Sculpture Centre; and at Artspace Auckland.
Jahnne has completed residencies at: Artspace, Auckland; Nes Artist Residency, Skagastrond, Iceland; Testing Grounds, Melbourne and Rome Art Program, Rome. She is co-founder of Brunswick Lake, an independent project space in Melbourne, has a BFA (Drawing) from RMIT (2010) and is currently completing Honours at VCA.
