Art at Islington

Presenting the newest edition to the every growing art collection at Islington, Dianne Allison's Moment in the Sun. 

The piece is made from hundreds of paper fragments taken from Tasmanian tour guides.


Diane's art practice is based in contemporary jewellery but has extended to public art and speculative exhibition and installation pieces. Her works often suggest a degree of fragility in both their aesthetics and concept and touch on quite fundamental human vulnerabilities. Di's larger work sees her sometimes take, as the artist states, "... a jeweller's aesthetic or approach of using smaller components and upscale it and see where it leads. In past works I've enjoyed playing with scale making some necklaces several metres long. I have [also] used pill capsules... I'm drawn to the jewel-like, bead-like quality they hold."
