The Victoria and Albert Museum has newly acquired three works from Regeneration for its collection: a drawn diptych Site Edit VII, 2009 has been purchased and will be included in a museum display and book by Susan Owens, curator of paintings, about British drawings in the collection. Publication is expected in 2013. To complement the drawing, two prints (etchings II and IV) from Regeneration Suite, 2007 have been purchased for the collection.
"For me, the most affecting drawings are those which are peculiar and lucid (....) In this selection one finds such distinct 'handwriting': the very built up coloured dots and clear script in Alison Turnbull's chart, the muted drifts within passges by David Musgrave, Don Brown, Emma McNally, George Shaw, Jane Dixon or Alison Wilding, all of whom think with shading, razor cuts, frottage, transparencies and employ techniques that deliberately lose their eloquence in reproduction."Catherine Lampert, 2009 (extract from the catalogue essay for In Between the Lines: Recent British Drawings, Trinity Contemporary, London.)
"What interests me is that you are able to produce images that appear calm out of such intensity or violence, yet that remain threatening. It is that sense of vulnerability combined with a troubling vitality that is fascinatng because so fragile, as if you have caught a moment of tension or poise between two such opposing states."
Simon Groom in conversation with Jane Dixon for the catalogue to accompany the exhibition 'Solid Sate: reflections upon the real' which she exhibited in and curated for Kettles' Yard, Cambridge in 2001.
"Her work is about vulnerability. It is about the human body, although the body is almost never present. It adresses the fears and sensations that the body engenders and arouses. Her paintings map the extent of our fragility and articulate the sensation of containment within fallible, organic, imperfect bodies. They speak eloquently of simple but important truths: of our need to hide our failings, to protect our weakness: they negotiate fundamental human paranoias - medical invasion, decrepitude, the threat of violence - and our fear of what is inevitable."
Ben Tufnell, curator at Tate Britain (taken from Under False Colours, 2004)
