Jennifer Cochrane graduated with a Bachelor of Art in Fine Art from Curtin University in 1988. Her practice is predominantly object based, creating sculptures and installations for public spaces over the last 15 years. She has exhibited throughout Australia and internationally including large-scale permanent works and intimate site specific installations. At the core of her practice is an emphasis on process oriented production, this production inevitably involves repetitive labour-intensive techniques to create works that investigate notions of interpretation and point of view.
Cochrane’s works are represented in various public and private collections. Her public commissions are numerous and include sculptural works for: Harvest Lakes Estate, Perth; the City of Mandurah Council Chambers; Parliament House, Western Australia; Anzac Park, Mount Hawthorn; and the Pilbara Police and Community Justice Services Complex, Karratha.

5 cubes continues an exploration into creating sculptural works through the replication of an element using industrial and civic materials. The cube forms are assembled on site from pipe and fittings. At the core of Cochrane’s practice is an emphasis on process oriented production. This production inevitably involves repetitive labour-intensive techniques to create works that investigate notions of interpretation and point of view.
