Jenny Wilson - mini exhibition: Ten New Paintings

6 - 30 April 2020

Artists are still painting and keen to show their work, so this is the first of a series of mini-exhibitions presenting new work by gallery artists.

 

Born in 1971, Jenny is a self-taught artist who has painted in oils since the age of 12,

she started painting with her grandmother in a small village in Sweden where she was

born. Jenny now lives and works in the UK.

Jenny’s work is inspired by the ever-changing colours through the passing

of the seasons in the local landscape along roads she travels every day.

She never aims to copy but simply to capture the mood and light without

focusing on details. She paints in oil on canvas, primarily using a palette

knife on canvas. She is drawn by the dramatic colours created by angry, grey skies

but also by the beautiful, captivating colour transformation the evening

light.

 

She says "With every day that passes my love and appreciation of the “everyday” and ordinary grows bigger. The wonder and miracles brought to us by seasons and weather, in both landscape and sky never fail to amaze me, specially the abundance of various colours. With my paintings I want to frame these “ordinary miracles” and let people discover and enjoy what often would just pass them by."
