I stay in and put make-up on (6)
Townsend, Jade Date
2016 See full details
Townsend investigates modern consumerist trends, unpacking where imitation ends and authenticity begins, and its power in determining our aesthetic values. She often employs the seductive techniques used within high fashion boutiques, presenting her works, made from marbled linoleum, gold tape or counterfeit paint as ‘luxury products’.
Born in Wanganui 1986, Jade completed her BA (Hons) Fine Art at Manchester Metropolitan University, England in 2009. In 2014 Townsend travelled to China on the Wellington-Asia Residency Exchange and exhibited in Beijing in 2015. She has shown throughout the Wellington region in both solo and group shows, in private and public galleries.
