Jan Hogan is Head of Printmaking at the Tasmanian College of the Arts.  Her art practice investigates concepts of ground through an immersion in the environment and testing the materials and concepts of the landscape tradition.  Her work is a reply to propositions she has seen in the work of Aboriginal Australian artists.  She is focused on developing a visual language that allows a cross-cultural dialogue on terms of equality and acceptance of difference.                       

Trained in Printmaking and Drawing the artist completed her PhD in 2009.  She has taught at the ANU School of Art, Charles Darwin University, College of Fine Arts, UNSW and the National Art School.  Her teaching and art practice is based on testing the materials and methods of printmaking and drawing, challenging these traditions and extending them through the introduction of non-art techniques. Jan exhibits regularly in solo and group exhibitions with a recent drawing installation at the NCCA, Darwin, 2014 and a cross-cultural group exhibition at the South Australia School of Art Gallery, Adelaide, 2014. She has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards including an Australia Council new art grant and an Australia council Project Grant. Her work is held in major collections, including the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the State Library of Queensland and Artbank.

Jan's Arts Forum presentation Shifting Grounds follows the development of her art practice as a dialogue with the land and its occupants.
