Jayne Seddon is a conceptual visual artist whose work connects art, ecology and Social Sculpture through the forms of walking, performance; and drawing: in its widest context.
Since studying MA Art As Environment at Manchester School Of Art, she has delivered site-responsive public art events and interventions in both rural and urban green spaces.
Her practice focuses upon the use of public space, conservation and public health. Research methods involve exploring new ways to shift the aesthetic of place – in order to connect people with landscape through collaborative processes. This usually begins with a walk.
Jayne has worked for over ten years on socially engaged projects, with participation, learning, and wellbeing outcomes being central to her process. She works with conservation, cultural, education, and health organisations.
She is currently Artist in Residence at LIPA – The Liverpool Institute For Performing Arts, Primary School, where she’s developing creative ecocentric outdoor play spaces. Studio Projects are supported by Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces.
