Verity Crane is an artist whose work utilises various techniques traditionally associated with women's work, including sewing and weaving, as well as unapologetically figurative oil paintings. They investigate culture and authenticity, while threading through parallel themes of aloneness and overstimulation, to explore what it is to navigate a world of short-term knowledge and monocultural practices far removed from subsistence farming.
Their work neither avoids nor surrenders to the predestined indignity that textile work is often awarded. Rather their works simply mull about in the territory of women's labour historically, taking note of resilience, patience and ancestry.
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which our campus is situated, the people of the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung, who have created art, made music and told their stories here for thousands of generations. We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
