What's New


After working with Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake into 2019, Janice started to look at John Cage, and his “Silence” pieces and the impact he has had on so many artists. She has made four works using wire and blue gauze while listening to John Cage Sonatas and Interludes for Prepared Piano Volumes 1 & 2, with some interesting results.

During the pandemic lockdown, she began work on Puccini's Madam Butterfly. Two years' work concluded in 2021, with the construction of kimonos made from silk printed with Madam Butterfly images.

A “Silent Music” exhibition catalogue will be published in 2023.
