Jane Wafer is an Oxford-based artist working mainly in 3D sculpture and installation.
She has exhibited in Oxfordshire, London and Italy.
The artist uses a variety of materials, both natural and man-made, often combining them to make 'synthetic hybrids.' Change and transformation are recurring themes and she frequently draws on the natural world for inspiration.
Jane originally studied biology before becoming an artist, and collaboration between the arts and sciences remains an important element in her work.
Her latest body of work explores the connection between mathematics, aesthetics and natural forms. It consists of sculptures knitted from wire using numerical sequences of various kinds. Some employ a Fibonacci sequence, others a series of prime numbers and a third group follow a pattern designed to produce a hyperbolic plane. This has created organic forms suggestive of marine life.
