Juxtapositions is a collaborative exhibition by poet, Jane Liddell-King and artist, Nancy Tingey. It marks 40 years of friendship during which they have shared their creative experiences: that Nancy was based in Australia proved no barrier. They met in Cambridge UK in 1977 when both were pregnant with their third children.

When, in 2004, Jane became the first Jewish woman to win the Seatonian Prize awarded annually by the University of Cambridge for a poem in English on a sacred subject, she sent Nancy a copy of the poem 'The Golden Calf'. Having just visited Egypt, Nancy was prompted to respond to the poem and Jane was amazed to receive a birthday gift of 19 watercolours. The series was exhibited at Michaelhouse, Cambridge in 2006 and the Watson Arts Centre, Canberra, in 2007.

Despite the continuous challenge of family commitments, Jane and Nancy continued to work together. Nancy painted the second series of JuxtaposItIons in response to 6 more of Jane's poems. This project has never before been shown.

Notably, Esther figures in 17 of the 23 watercolours which, together with the poems, were on display in Gallery One at Strathnairn Arts, Canberra, from 15 February until 25 March 2018.
