Jane Zusters was born in Christchurch and has been exhibiting throughout New Zealand since 1975. She studied painting at the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts and graduated in 2003 with an MFA (First Class Honours) in photography from Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design, Auckland. Her practice includes painting, photography, installation involving found objects and short-looped video pieces. In 2005 she returned to live and work in Christchurch after twenty years based at her studio house on Waiheke Island. Zusters is represented in major public collections in New Zealand.
Zusters’ work explores one of the central issues of our time; that uneasy ecological edge where natural worlds are threatened when human beings channel the whole eco system into themselves. She is especially passionate about endangered New Zealand birds and water issues and co-founded with Sally Hope (granddaughter of Mackenzie Country painter Esther Hope) artists for save our water whose art projects draw attention to water conservation.
