Jeannie's recent work under the title Lifting the Drawing off the Page, tests relationships between drawing, installation and performance with a new set of rules, systems, materials and measurements. In these works, drawing systems, or spines explore perception, where 'line' is material to create transient, 'un-fixed' works that shift in time and space.
Driver works that tease ideas of perception, are imbued with metaphoric symbolism for unstable propositions. Her
interest in activating space with an urge towards accessibility and engagement has evolved through her previous practice within the public realm.

1999 - 2007
On graduating from university with a Masters distinction Jeannie Driver (Kerswell) focused on working within the public realm. Influenced by the theories and models of engagement of Suzanne Lacy and Mary Jane Jacob, Driver tested different roles of the artist, from collaborator, facilitator, activist, and documenter. Through this dialogical discourse and collaborative approach Driver developed numerous projects including the 'highly commended' The City As a Canvas, Big Draw project. The project "The Colour Happened on the Inside' resulted in a 72 metre artwork on the contested brutalist Building prior to its demolition and was featured in the Design Awards by academic Valerie Swales.
In 2007 Driver was awarded ACE funding to develop her SPIKE IT project, located in seven offices to explore issues of work, flow and waste. This project became the bridge to Drivers subsequent studio based practice and developed her attachment to paper as material.
