Sullivan’s artistic practice has developed from a representational portrayal of form to a fresh and unique take on contemporary sculpture. Her work focuses on the use of fluid, flowing lines to enhance simplified form.
While bronze is her preferred medium Sullivan also carves original pieces out of Hinuera stone, local to her home of Rotorua. Sullivan’s bronze works are generally limited to editions of 12 or 20 while her stone pieces are one of a kind, with both materials providing an enduring permanence to the works.
Parnell Gallery has represented Janene Sullivan since 2007.
