Description

BIOGRAPHY OF JEANNETTE UNITE

Jeannette Unite, born in 1964, is a South African artist who has mined for her paint box by collecting oxides, metal salts and residues from mines, heritage and industrial sites, to develop paint, pastel and glass recipes for her large scale artworks that reflect on the mining and industrial sites where human’s contemporary world is manufactured.

Her industrial-scale mining Headgear drawings and TERRA paintings were exhibited at Museum Ostwall, Dortmund, Germany in the reconstructed building on the site of mining headquarters for the Ruhr Valley to commemorate the final year of underground coal mining in Germany.

Through 2014 and 2015 her research on Earth’s stratigraphy with Department of Earth Sciences, Oxford University and Oxford University Museum, developed into a body of work exhibited at the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World (CCANW),[13] Exeter University, Devon, between October 2015 and February 2016. This travelling exhibition also formed part of the United Nations’ Year of Soil and the British Geological Society’s Year of Mud.
